Kyle Murray Announces He Will Concentrate On NFL Career

Kyler Murray is committing himself to football, the Heisman Trophy victor said Monday via social media.

Nobody at the National Football League level's been a more unabashed fan of Kyler Murray than Kliff Kingsbury has, and the man who just so happens to be the newly-minted coach of the Arizona Cardinals clearly has a top grade on the QB.

Former Oklahoma quarterback, Heisman Trophy victor, and Oakland Athletics 2018 first-round draft pick Kyler Murray finally chose a sport on Monday.

NFL executives are enamored with the skill-set of the reigning Heisman Trophy victor but the biggest concern they had was how committed he was to football. Football has been my love and passion my entire live. "I was raised to play QB and I very much look forward to dedicating 100% of myself to being the best QB possible and winning NFL Championships".

However, unless there is a trade made for the No. 1 overall pick, it seems unlikely that Murray will be drafted at the same spot Mayfield was. Until Monday. Now, Murray will turn his sights toward becoming a first-round choice in the April NFL draft.

The governor also indicated that there was scope for further rate cuts this year if prices do not rise. Consequently, the reverse repo rate has also come down by a similar percentage point to 6 percent.

Murray passed for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns for Oklahoma last season and ran for 1,001 yards and 12 scores. Among those supporters is ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit, who gave his thoughts on Murray's announcement.

The New York Jets already have their quarterback of the future in Sam Darnold but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be keeping close tabs on the top signal-callers in the upcoming draft class.

Another potential, albeit unlikely scenario, is that the Arizona Cardinals could take Murray with their first selection. Murray is talented and there is no denying that but how well his small frame, think of Doug Flutie, will hold up in the National Football League is a serious question. Nonetheless, he's considered a talented thrower.
