Kyler Murray is ready to be measured at the NFL Combine.

"I don't get where the whole 5-foot-8..." he said. "I don't understand that."

The Heisman winner from Oklahoma was in Fort Worth on Monday receiving the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback. He has turned his back on baseball and a multi-million-dollar bonus from the Oakland A's to focus on his love of football.

"Not many people have been in this position to have to just quit one," Murray said.

He has no regrets with giving up baseball.

"For me," he said, "waking up kind of just having it out there has been easier on me."

Murray comes from a football family. His dad was a star at Texas A&M in the 80s. His uncle played baseball at Texas in the 90s, but was a great quarterback in high school.

"My dad played football, my uncle's played football," he said. "Always had a football in my hands."

The Arizona Cardinals have the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, which takes place April 25 to 27.
