Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray decided to forgo his senior year to enter the 2013 NFL Draft. As it turns out, that probably wasn't such a good idea after all.

Bray went undrafted and watched 12 quarterbacks go ahead of him -- despite his ranking as the seventh best QB entering the draft by NFLDraftScout.com.

A big-time recruit out of California when he came to Knoxville, Bray exhibited all the physical tools of a major talent. He failed to meet expectations as his career wore on, however, and he couldn't distance himself from this year's crop of mediocre quarterbacks.

That said, it was expected that Bray would hear his name called around the third round, if not sooner. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what caused Bray's fall, but there are concerns about his leadership qualities and his ability to perform at a high level consistently.

Still, he's a guy with a big arm and loads of talent. He was, at one time, thought to be a first-round talent. Now he'll just have to wait and see who will take a chance on him as a free agent.
