Me. And I think he's super talented college QB, but he is just too small to play in the NFL. He makes Russell Wilson and Baker Mayfield look tall. And they're among the shortest in the league.

As a basbeall player, he plays OF, but looks so small to me. Here he is next to Baker Mayfield who is just 6'. And Baker is bending down further. Scouts say he isn't close to 5'10, so maybe he's 5'9, but a 5'9" QB is not going to be a 1st round pick.

He should stick to baseball.

Also, forgot to add. Kyler Murray will be a first pick.

In the NFL especially due to his size he's more likely to get a concussion, several concussions during his career which seems to cause NFLers to become mentally unstable.

He should take the MLB money & he won't have to worry about getting concussions.

Did you hear that from Casey Kotchman?

Nope. For every Casey Kotchman there is 50 guys in the NFL & NHL who get a concussion every year.

Quite a few people in both NFL & NHL have committed suicide due to mental illness cause by the violent concussions they got

But there is some risk of concussions in baseball. I pointed out in my original post that the increased injury risk should be considered. But you should have pointed out in your post that the risk for QBs is greatly reduced compared to every other position in football. It's an increased risk compared to baseball but it's not as much as if he were playing any other position. Also, is there any evidence that if he weighed 20 more pounds he wouldn't get as many concussions? The earnings difference needs to be considered against the risk.

If he wants a successful career, I personally would think baseball is probably a little bit better gamble. If he wants fast money, a quicker route to big league play, and doesn’t want to go the long route of minor league baseball, he should go with football.

Take this for whatever it's worth.  I stood a few yards away from him on the sideline during a game his senior year in high school and my guess is that he was about 5-8.  I was curious about his height because I knew he was being so heavily recruited and was likely headed to A&M.  He was listed at 5-11 then too and everyone knew that was laughable.

Having said that if there's a 5-8 QB that's capable of playing in the NFL it's probably him.  Like Marinovich he's been groomed his entire life for it.  His dad, Kevin Murray, who was a pretty good college QB too, conducts QB clinics and camps all over Texas and from what I understand is making a pretty good living from it.    BTW Kevin's brother (Kyler's uncle) is Calvin Murray who some of you might remember was an OF for the Giants for a few years.  Good bloodlines.

This is why I never read anything from anyone at SBN. Well one of the reasons at least. But man, outside of a small handful of quality writers, most of these bloggers over there are garbage. 

This chick is just the bitter version of the old Angels blogger at HalosHeaven (SBN) that got canned for writing an article saying hateful things about Josh Hamilton.

I agree. Baseball is much easier on the body I'd imagine. Money I'm sure plays a role here of course but football is his first love.

6'1"

not saying you said so, but since when is 6'1" short. i'm that exact height and i'm taller than almost everybody.

The average height of the 32 NFL starting quarterbacks as of the date of publication was 6 feet 3 inches, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com. 

i don't believe two inches makes much of a difference, but if murray is 5'8"-5'10", then i can see how 5-7 inches is a big deal.

edit: i just realized. cue the penis jokes.

The 6'1" comment was in reference to Mayfield.

seeing as the rule was collectively bargained, I don't see how MLB can allow this to happen . it could have some drastic ramifications. 

Right and I'm sure the other 29 teams will have a big issue with it as well.
