Scouting Report/Player Notes

Bray is an interesting QB prospect. Prior to the start of the 2012 season, we had him pegged as a potential number one pick in the 2012 Draft. He certainly has that potential, but will he live up to it? It’s fair to question with his star-studded cast at Tennessee and the relative lack of improvement in accuracy. He never completed 60 percent or better of his passes at Tennessee, whether he only threw 224 passes or 450. He has a very strong arm and is capable of making every throw, but his accuracy is erratic at best right now. He has potential to light it up in the passing game, so some NFL team (preferably one with a stable QB situation) can select him in the second or third round and develop him as a future starter or to trade for draft selections. He’s not a great athlete, but I think he can be a really good pocket passer in the NFL given 2-4 years of development.
