Is it worth the risk for the A's to do a major league contract. I was very surprised at his college numbers. 

Not for that kind of money. He really is slight BTW.

If he's actually 5'8" how can he be a first round pick in the NFL?

I think it might, honestly. Dude's college numbers are impressive and using options, he can always be developed. 

He's very raw.

It isn't that easy to develop raw guys, look at Bubba Starling.

I guess that the success of some of his size and style guys makes them dream. I saw the Heisman photo.  Even if it is a bad angel, he can't be actual 5 9'.

Bubba is a phenomenal athlete. That's why there are only 800 to 900 MLB players at a time. It's real tough. And skills don't seem to all project.

How is it that MLB is allowing the A's to spend more on their 1st round pick than anyone else?  I don't understand why the favoritism

I believe the O's had a similar option with Pat Connaughton.

I saw on twitter an OU staffer say he was 5-9 7/8 with socks on before the season started.

I saw him stand by a guy 6'2" and he was 5 to 8 inches shorter. Must have been the shoes.

Quote

He declared for the 2019 NFL Draft and reportedly told the Oakland Athletics he wants to pursue his football career. Yet when asked whether he would attend the NFL Scouting Combine, or whether he’d be at spring training, all Murray had for an answer was crickets.

It's official, going to the NFL.

Shame, baseball loses what could be a good one.

Shame the A's lose the pick but at least they get the signing bonus back.
