NFL Draft Notes: Justin Herbert, Dwayne Haskins, Kyler Murray


Justin Herbert

  • Despite reports that Oregon QB Justin Herbert could be leaning towards returning to school next year, Gil Brandt says he would “make a rather heavy wager” Herbert declares for the 2019 NFL draft.
  • Brandt adds that he would also wager that Herbert will be a top-5 pick when all is said and done.

Dwayne Haskins

  • Gil Brandt is hearing that Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins is “heavily leaning” toward entering the 2019 NFL Draft.
  • Bradt says that Haskins is considered to be a “very hot name” in scouting circles and is “moving up quickly.”

Kyler Murray

Over the weekend, Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray’s baseball agent, Scott Boras, told Ian Rapoport that he won’t pursue an NFL career.

“Kyler has agreed and the A’s agreed to a baseball contract that gave him permission to play college football through the end of the collegiate season,” Boras said. “After that, he is under contract to play baseball. That is not a determination to make. It’s already done.”

However, Gil Brandt says he isn’t convinced that Murray’s pro football dreams are over no matter what his agent says.
