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.

Well... that was something.

The Redskins, who hold the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, have been linked with Murray in a few mock drafts this offseason and may want to get a firmer commitment from the diminutive QB if they are interested in selecting him.

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."

On the other side, 106.7 The Fan's Chris Russell said he didn't find the interview to be a big deal.

J.P Flaim and Chad Dukes both seemed to disagree with Russell's assessment.

Much like Murray himself, the Redskins have remained noncommittal about drafting a quarterback and said next to nothing about their plans for 2019, as well.

Sounds like the QB drama will continue in Washington.
