MLB Rumors: Kyler Murray Turned Down Very Enticing Offer From Athletics

In addition, he says the Raiders could bring in a quarterback this April, but it would not be likely until Day 3 of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The former offensive lineman claimed that if Kyler Murray doesn't get selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the first pick, he may not be taken in the first round.

The 2018 Heisman Trophy victor is expected to be selected high in the upcoming National Football League draft, potentially as high as the No. 1 pick.


We are now just days away from 2019 NFL Draft week and numerous scenarios remain possible for what the Detroit Lions will do.

Originally, Murray was drafted ninth overall by the Oakland Athletics in the 2018 MLB Amateur Draft and signed a $4.33 million contract with the club.

As for incumbent starter Rosen, Kingsbury said Rosen already has a "good grasp" of the offense Kingsbury has installed over the week-plus that players have returned to meetings.


Ultimately, I expect the Cardinals to find a willing trade partner for Josh Rosen, last year's No. 10 overall pick, clearing the way for them to spend this pick on the Heisman Trophy victor. The GM wouldn't rule out a trade, noting that it always hinges on the haul back and the opportunity cost in missing out on what in this draft would be the Cardinals' best player on the board. It could cost the Giants as little as pick No. 6 (1,600 points) and pick No. 37 (530 points) and a second-round pick in 2020.

"He's been phenomenal", Keim told reporters Tuesday. They need an edge rusher more than an interior defender, so Kentucky's Josh Allen might get the nod in that situation.

"The fact that we don't know what we're doing but everyone else does, that's concerning", Keim said with a smile.
