Keith Law says that the floor for Kyler Murray should he choose baseball over football, is that he could be “someone who nevers makes the majors.” And with Murray’s speed and athleticism, his ceiling can be a player who plays great defense and become an “occasional” All-Star. Todd McShay details how much money Murray can make if he went to the MLB vs. what he will make in the NFL. McShay says that Kyler is likely a first-round pick, but does not think he will go No. 1 overall in the NFL draft.

  1. Nobody knows quite what his ceiling or floor is in baseball it’s not as absolutely easy to tell like in basketball or even football. Many 1st round draft picks never make it to the show while others are HOF so this dude is talking out his ass about it rn best believe that Kyler has raw tools that if refined correctly could make him a very very good baseball player

  2. Right now, the best move would be to go to the NFL. Upfront he would be earning more money. He would take years to get to the majors in MLB, and it would take him that long to earn his first major contract. Even if it doesn’t work out for him in the NFL, he could always fall back on the MLB. He’s making the right move.

    1. Eli Kulin he would make more money upfront if he gets picked in the 1st 2 rounds which were not sure where he would get picked if he chose football but he has to make a decision soon.

    2. +EM Baller not necessarily more money if he bust out and dont make it to the big leagues he wont make all that much. Nfl is more upfront money. Mlb is more money in the future. I think aaron judge is still making like 2 mill a year.

    3. If he goes to baseball, not only will he STILL be a millionaire and maybe even richer than some NFL players, but he will actually still have a functioning brain when his grandkids are born.

    4. I totally agree as well, more money, better long term health, and he’s limited in football which is not the case in baseball
