Kyler Murray declares intent to attend NFL scouting combine
Kyler Murray declared his intent to attend the NFL scouting combine later this month.
The former Heisman trophy winner and Oklahoma quarterback was among the 338 participants the NFL listed Thursday.

Murray could always withdraw from the combine and the 21-year-old was evasive when asked about his plans in an interview with Dan Patrick last week but this is another sign he could pursue professional football instead of baseball.
The combine will be a chance for teams to meet with Murray and interview him. He’ll also go through workouts for scouts and executives to see.
Murray is seen as a potential first-round pick in this year’s draft.
It is unclear if Murray, who was drafted by the Oakland A’s in 2018, will still attend spring training on Feb. 15.
