Kyler Murray's most likely destination in the NFL revealed
The 2018 Heisman Trophy winner has declared for the NFL draft.
That shouldn't be a surprising statement, but Kyler Murray isn't your average prospect. The former Oklahoma quarterback is a two-sport superstar who was drafted ninth overall by the Oakland A's in last year's MLB draft, but chose instead to follow his football dreams. He officially declared for the 2019 NFL draft on Monday.
So which quarterback-needy team will swoop in to draft the phenom?
The Arizona Cardinals have the first pick in the 2019 draft, and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury has previously stated he would select Murray No. 1 overall if given the chance. However, the Cardinals drafted quarterback Josh Rosen just last year, before Kingsbury was at the helm.
A flurry of highly criticized trades this season helped the Oakland Raiders to stockpile 2019 draft picks, including the No. 4 overall selection and two others in the first round. The team could maneuver a way to nab Murray should Arizona pass on him.
The door is wide open, as always, for last-minute moves, be it a team that trades up in the draft specifically for Murray, or even one that could trade for him after draft night.
Take a look below to see the teams Murray could suit up for at the start of next season, according to OddsShark:
