University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray was chosen by the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night as the first pick of the National Football League college draft. Last season, Murray threw for 54 touchdowns and won the Heisman Trophy, and during his university's pro day in March, he completed 61 of 67 passes. Murray is also a baseball star, and signed a $4.6 million contract in 2018 with the Oakland Athletics; he was the ninth pick in the Major League Baseball draft. Now that Murray is choosing football over baseball, he will return most of the $1.5 million bonus he received from the Athletics.
