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.

This thread is ridiculous LOL.

DRAFT A TE2!

NOT THAT ONE I WANTED KELCE 2.0! THIS ISNT AN EXACT CLONE!

Let’s be real if this guy turns into a functioning TE like a Sean McGrath type it’s a win at this spot, if he can be a Moeaki type as in a TE1 in any aspect post kelce or during and injury it’s a slam dunk. If he becomes the next killa Trav we should all slurp veachs nuts in an attempt to become smarter.

Ideally he can play tight end and some FB we rarely use one but having an athletic FB that can catch and ceh out of the back field could be used.

Here’s a guy who in the nightmare scenario you don’t have Kelce available for some snaps, who can replicate some of his style. The routes, the ability to be a viable threat as a receiver. You can’t ask Blake Bell to play that role.

Obviously it would be a major step down no matter how you slice it, but at least with Gray it’s not a complete waste of a body out there. I think it’s why they held onto RSJ all year in 2021 despite him never really playing. Hopefully Gray can find other ways to contribute still even if he doesn’t see much offensive time early.

Kittle was a 5th rounder but your point stands.

I believe the Broncos selected Jake Butt the pick before Kittle. DOH!

I'm just glad the kid gets to learn at the feet of Kelce.

Iím taking a guy named Butt off my draft board.

Hey now, he was the first one to catch a Mahomes pass and it was a great catch.

So the one bad thing about him that he’s a huge Tom Brady, Gronk, Edelman, Patriots & Portnoy ball washer since he’s from MA. Dave Portnoy is the biggest Travis Kelce hater of all time.

Not that any of this matters, but I imagine that his least favorite NFL team was KC.

I did look and see if he ever talked shit on Mahomes/Kelce/Tyreek/KC, and thankfully there was no slander.

I’m sure he’ll feel a lot different after he meets the guys the first time.
