Kyler Murray didn't want to answer any questions about football Friday.
In an interview with Dan Patrick, the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback out of Oklahoma was suddenly struck silent when asked about the NFL Draft and was very noncommittal about whether he will play in the NFL or MLB.

Analysis on whether this hurts Murray's draft stock are varied. 106.7 The Fan Redskins reporter Craig Hoffman reported a league front office member said interviews like this "are doing real, but not irreversible damage."
Talked to someone in a front office yesterday and these interviews are doing real, but not irreversible damage.He’s a QB. Can’t lead if you’re not all in. He hasn’t decided yet, which is why the damage isn’t irreversible but the idea that he could bolt isn’t sitting well. https://t.co/74DigGS3Ci
On the other side, 106.7 The Fan's Chris Russell said he didn't find the interview to be a big deal.
I don't know..I think we are making a huge deal out of one awkward interview when the kid doesn't want to completely tip his hand. Now should he be doing them? No. Is this one spot that big of a deal to me? No. I could be wrong. #Redskinshttps://t.co/ni6PCKVmn8
