NFL Draft Countdown | No.3 Tyler Bray
Pros: As a freshman, Bray took over the starting job from Matt Simms and showed immediate star ability. The California native has progressed steadily on picking up on defensive reads and improving his accuracy—has a strong enough arm to make all the throws. Bray places good touch on his pass attempts, he knows when to zip it and when to float it.
Cons: Despite his vast improvement, Bray still needs to be more consistent with his decision-making. While Bray has great height (6’6), his frame appears fragile and one has to wonder whether he can sustain the impact of NFL caliber hits over time. He could stand to fill out his frame and improve his mobility in the pocket.
Medical Report: A broken right thumb held him out of action the remainder five weeks of the season in 2011.
