Yeah, i could go for some TJ Hockenson on the Jaguars.  He seems like the sort of TE that would actually fit what they're looking for, and might actually use pretty well too.  Gonna cost a big pick spend to get him though i'd think.  Seems to have the whole package though.

lol.  What else was he gonna do?  What's the harm in declaring coming off a Heisman season where he's turning Pro next year in some sport or another?  Totally meaningless statement tbh.

Isn't the harm possibly voiding his contract with the As? Especially since that signing bonus will be worth more than his 1st contract unless he is a 1st round pick

Not really.  There's no threat in anything for Murray right now.  Like you said...if he's picked high in the NFL draft, he goes and plays football and cashes out on his first contract.  If not...he goes back to baseball, and anything he "voids" there, is immediately made up by every other team in the league if he becomes available.  He's got literally nothing to lose.  It's win-win for him to declare.

This. Let us also remember that he plays the most lucrative position in football. Kirk Cousins just got 84 million guaranteed over 3 years, which is an average of 28 million a year. If he can reach that level he has the opportunity to make great money in football before deciding if he wants to switch to baseball.

If he steps away from baseball though and stops playing it his first contract there will still probably be lower. Hitting 90 mph fastballs isn't like riding a bike and his NFL contract has to forbid him from baseball
