Kyler Murray fully committed to playing in the NFL

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", Murray added.

Few doubt Murray's physical abilities, but his short stature may limit the number of teams willing to invest a high draft pick in him. Whatever the goal, Burkhardt's task will be to make it happen.

Murray has chosen Erik Burkhardt of SSG as the agent to represent him in the National Football League, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Otherwise, his own credibility will be undermined moving forward.

Murray is set to take part in the National Football League combine, where college prospects perform physical and mental tests in front of National Football League coaches and scouts, on 26 February before the first round of the draft on 25 April.

The Athletics were hit with the news today that top 2018 draft choice Kyler Murray intends to pursue a career in the NFL.

On Tuesday, Kingsbury stifled speculation Murray would be Rosen's replacement. Scott Boras represented Murray in baseball.

The Sooners could have back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners and back-to-back first-round quarterbacks.

The Arizona Cardinals went out of their way to debunk, deny and rebuff any insinuation or whisper that the team would even consider drafting Kyler Murray and trading quarterback Josh Rosen.

Murray is No. 8 on Kiper's board, released last week. "That's the kind of person you want with your first-round pick". Now that has all changed since his declaration that he is committing to football.

The Jets are open for business with the No. 3 pick, though. If the pocket collapses he can scramble and extend a play. The fifth-year option for players selected No. 11-32 is the average of the third through 25th highest salaries at a player's position. The guaranteed money projected with this pick is right around $4.7 million. Once in the major leagues, it would have been another three years before becoming salary arbitration eligible. His first shot at free agency likely wouldn't have come until 2026 or 2027 at age 29 or 30. It is worth noting that he has yet to sign with a football agent, so the little hope that the A's now have hangs by a thread.
