Surprise! More to come!

Gray stepped into the NFL draft spotlight as a junior, garnering second-team All-ACC honors by leading the Blue Devils in receptions and finishing among the top FBS tight ends with 51 catches for 392 yards (7.7 per) and three scores. The 2020 team captain played in 10 games with nine starts as a senior (29 receptions, 285 yards, 9.8 average, two touchdowns), becoming the school's all-time leading receiver at tight end. He accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. -- by Chad Reuter

Overview
Gray understands leverage and how to create some tilt in coverage but doesn't have play speed or separation burst to do enough with it. While he's not going to have the size or strength to block defenders when firing off the ball, he has enough athleticism and grit to offer some assistance as a move blocker from the slot or wing position. He has late-round potential and could find a team fit as a TE3/4.
Strengths
  • Team captain.
  • Helps out in pass protection with decent mirror and technique.
  • Will stick and sustain as a slot blocker.
  • Reads the track properly when asked to lead block.
  • Slick footwork and leverage in his routes.
  • Ability to run more complex routes underneath.
  • Spins open suddenly in space against zone.
  • Sharp angles out of his turns.
  • Adjustment and focus to bring the throw in.
Weaknesses
  • Just nine yards per reception during career.
  • Thin through waist and hips with lean lower body.
  • Lacks threatening vertical push off the line.
  • Moves well but doesn't separate much.
  • Might not have ability to attack the seam.
  • Lacks agility on the move when working at the second level.
  • Gets overtaken by force at point of attack as blocker.

You've got that right. Let Travis teach him, lock him in the weight room to put on more muscle and he'll be just fine.

It’s not just his number. He looks so much like Kelce it’s insane.

He’s working the middle of the field, reading zone coverage to find the holes and has excellent lateral agility to separate from LB’s.

This is a home run pick IMO

Not super blown away to be honest, what I'm reading has him as a 6th-7th round prospect... but he apparently does have a knack for getting open as a zone buster and has experience splitting out wide

As SNR said, he's gotta be better than everyone but Kelce right?

but he sooooorta gives me Kelce vibes?
It also looks like he can get stronger and bigger as well. He only did 15 reps, this can be fixed...

With Gray the Chiefs will be getting a tight end that has athletic ability, a little shake in the open field. He feels coverages out really well, crisp cuts in his routes off the breaks. He crushes going against linebackers, so the more isolation matchups like that, he can win.

Looks like a guy who was too slow to play WR so they turned him into a TE. Not a bad pick and could work out well learning under the wing of Kelce.

Seems like he will finally fill that second TE spot that we never can find anyone to step into. I've got faith in this pick. Looks like he does a good job finding holes in coverage and based on his highlights he finishes runs well. I like it!
