Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Gray runs with violence; he’s capable of thrashing through tacklers, and Gray has the natural balance to withstand contact.
  • A compact runner, he has a rare blend of balance, agility and instincts.
  • He shows decent burst and straight-line speed to turn in big plays.
  • He’s at his best working in space, showing the quickness and vision of a return specialist. His stop-start ability allows him to create initial separation.
  • Bowling-ball runner between the tackles. Flashes a burst in and out of the hole. Lowers his pads and delivers a blow into the chest of defenders. Falls forward on nearly every run due to lean. Short build makes it difficult for defenders to find among linemen. Good acceleration and straight-line speed.
  • He shows suddenness off the line of scrimmage and accelerates quickly, and his top-end speed is among the best in this draft.
  • He often thrived in the screen game, transitioning upfield quickly and showing a knack for following his blocks. Gray has the size and strength to pass protect.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Gray really isn’t a guy who will create a lot of separation.
  • He’s more of a cut blocker in pass protection as opposed to a guy who will stick his face in against the blitz, although that is a correctable flaw.
  • Offers little in pass protection and poor technique cut blocking, fails to do more than slow down blitzers by laying down in front of them.
