Mr Kyler Murray is bringing up a baseball to spend his dream for being an NFL quarterback, and there may be a good news for Detroit Lions.

The Lions are not on the market for quarterback with the eighth pick of the NFL April draft, not after general manager Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia's committee returned to Matthew Stafford last month.

But Murray's presence is in the draft – and more importantly, to confirm on social media on Monday "that I could firmly restrict my life and time to the NFL backup" – may have the prospect and Another better going to the Lions in Round 1.

Referee winner Heisman Trophy, Murray, is one of the most memorable quarterback prospects recently.

He spent 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns at Oklahoma this season, and ran for 1,001 yards and 12 more. And while it's almost 5 feet to 10, the NFL game has evolved enough to believe that its platform does not block staff in the draft.

Baker Mayfield, measuring a shadow of more than 6 feet by NFL, went No. 1 total in the 2018 and The Cleveland Browns have a franchise appearance for quarterback, and smaller fewer paints like Drew Brees and Russell Wilson have improved for decades now.

While the NFL team has a lot of strength to assess when it comes to Murray's potential, it will definitely be a first pick and it's easy to go to top 10 in a draft that is at the scene quarterback.

It is widely considered that Dwayne Haskins Ohio Ohio is the top expectation of the draft in the draft – it is No. 5 on ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. The best prospects – and before Monday the only caller seemed to be a sign that entered the top 10.

But if Murray, No. 8 on the list of prospects, she will soon go out of the board, giving the Lions a more realistic choice when they are on the clock.

Of the seven teams that choose before the Lions, there are two – New York Giants (No. 6) and Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 7) – fully in the quarterback market in the draft.

The Oakland Raiders, who choose a quarter and Derek Carr under a contract, can also be considered a quarterback, and Jon Gruden announced that he was a great fan of Murray at the Senior Bowl of the month last.

(Unfortunately, the three teams choose before the Lions, so the Lions will not be able to create a trading market when the Giants, Jags or Raiders team need to be read to snag Murray. Broncos Denver, the 10th owners choose also, the rehabilitation quarter needs to be needed, so the lenses may have an interest in trading if Murray falls.)

The first line of this year's draft is that many blue chip players are not available, but the first series has a good depth. Finally, the US State Defense, Nick Bosa, Alabama could tackle the defenses of defense of Quinnen Williams and Kentucky, maybe Josh Allen is the only TV prospect, although players can seem like LSU Greedy Williams and Defensive Linear Devin White and Michigan, Rashan Gary, make the case,.

If there are only six detailed prospects in the draft (according to the Lionsa board), Murray may have a deficit on staff like those who need more Lions, without pay attention to the site.

Regarding the possibility of drafting Murray himself, the importance of having a serious barrier quarterback to last year's proactive team – and with a new offensive co-ordinator, spent six years calling for Wilson plays with the Seattle Seahawks – the Lions seem to have a path that they are not interested in going down.

Yes, Stafford had a season in 2018. And today's NFL is the worst thing that is getting young and cheap at the quarterback site.

But Quinn does not have time or security than Patricia to oversee rebuilding and both of them hit the big hand of Stafford and a larger contract.

Murray still needs to repay 95 percent of the $ 4.66 million signature bonus that he has received as a round pick at Oakland's last Baseball draft last year, and it may still be certain do it with NFL teams that it will not return to baseball if things go south as a quarterback.

But announcing Monday but the April draft was much more interesting – and it might also be much better for the Lions too.
