    well... those scouts would be wrong.

    just takes one team, he wouldn't make it out of the first round if he picked football over baseball

    I don't see him as a lock first round pick. The further away he gets from the season, he more teams will question the size, system, experience, etc. People are also looking at his draft status very optimistically now because of the baseball thing. Projecting him higher makes it a great chance he chooses football, which is good from a media narrative standpoint.

    you talking about the system that just produced the #1 overall pick and possible rookie of the year?

    Is there anything that prevents him from playing baseball even once he gets drafted by an NFL team. I have to think that’s a factor of uncertainty for NFL GMs as well.

    we'll just disagree. I believe the hole is that it doesn't have to be consensus. Can literally be 1/32 teams believe he is a first round pick, and he will go. Lamar Jackson isn't accurate/can't throw, 1st round. Tebow couldnt throw, 1st round. List goes on and on of QBs that have flaws in their game, but tons of production and the "IT" factor. Kyler checks those boxes, and is a much more accomplished passer, he's just small. Baker/Russell are helping convince teams Kyler can do it, and neither are near as fast/athletic as him.

    Do you consider Joe Montana, Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning to be elite level athletes?

    That would be another question, although I'm guessing they would have something in the contract language where he would have to pay back bonus money if he did that.

    I assume John Daly is a great athlete too? Bartolo Colon? Pablo Sandoval?

    I contend one can be a professional athlete while not being a world class athlete.

    no, you are contending that one can be a professional athlete without being particularly athletic, which has the same root word but a different meaning.

    hope that helps.

    He’s faster and jumps higher! That’s all that counts right

    I consider being elite at throwing a football athleticism as it is a task that takes great physical ability and is part of a sporting competition.

    Baker Mayfield having success in the NFL doesn't really mean anything for Kyler Murray. Unless an NFL team is going to hire someone to run an offense similar to Riley's, I don't really see how it's a positive that he came from that offense.

    John Daly has one of the most athletic swings in the history of the tour, with insane hand eye coordination to go with it. The things his body does when he hits his driver are beyond uncommon. Guy is a freak.

    He played one defense with a pulse all season and got his ass kicked. Not sure why that makes him some sure fire stud to anyone.

    Probably. Jeter was good at hitting a baseball. I wouldn't say he was a world class athlete.

    riley’s offense is predicated on actually reading the defense and requires all of the nfl throws. baker was a lot more prepared than people gave him credit for and kyler will be the same

    the offense is a lot different than those that guys like haskins, lock, and grier played in

    And no one is going to be viewing the offenses that Haskins, Lock and Grier played in as a positive. All of them of are the kinds of offenses that historically haven't translated as well to the pros. And none of those three guys are 5'10". Doesn't mean none of them can/will succeed, but I think NFL teams evaluating Murray would prefer he came from an offense more similar to what he would likely be asked to run in the league.
