He's to small and will get injured in a heart beat.

We to think the same too things about where two he should go.

I don't see how he could possibly be long lasting in the NFL. He's smaller than Flutie ffs. If I were the A's I'd sit pat and let him fail at football.

Two more guaranteed years that we go with Archie being the only two-time Heisman winner.  Works for me!

Justin Fields will dethrone Archie as the only two-time winner...

... and I'm OK with that!

Mayhaps Murray is looking at the success of 5'6" Tarik Cohen and will list himself as a RB. LOL.

He could always go first round, make him some money sitting behind someone for a few years and make a decision on baseball after he gives the NFL a shot. Baseball offers will still be there for him in a few years. Russel Wilson  could quit the NFL now and go play for the MLB.

He'll easily be the most interesting prospect in the draft, as far as how high he'll go, will anyone move up to take him, is he worth the gamble, etc.?

Kliff Kingsbury said he'd draft Murray as No 1 if he had the chance. 

And now Kingsbury has the chance. I'd be absolutely shocked if he puts his money where his mouth (was) though. At best Murray is the 2nd or 3rd QB drafted, so probably mid-late first round or early second.

He’s a top 10 pick, which I believe comes with a huge signing bonus and a 3 year contract. Nfl pension at year 4?

What about Sheffield?? Can I assume he did not go pro today and OSU did not lose anyone today at the deadline??

Murray must love football to give up $5 million to play a sport with typically shorter careers. We shall see.

If he’s drafted in the first round, his signing bonus alone will be at least $5M.  

I can see him turning down MLB for a shot at the NFL because, (1) if successful, NFL QBs are generally more famous than baseball players and (2) he can always try to go back to baseball but going the opposite direction would be near impossible.

Dumb decision. 

Long term I don't think he projects well in the NFL.

Definitely be an interesting watch to see who takes him. And maybe he’s just curious to see where he stacks up in the nfl. But he has nothing to loose. If he doesn’t like where he goes he can just go baseball

If he became a former Heisman winning qb in the nfl And a successful pro ball player, that’s an income multiplier.

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

The NFL is changing rapidly and size is not the problem it used to be (if it ever was).  He's an incredible athlete, maybe the one question mark is his accuracy but I thought he looked pretty damn good against Alabama.  Paired with the right offensive coach (Klifffff!!!!!) I think he can do well.
