2013 NFL Combine: Tennessee QB Bray's arm, release may up stock
Generating buzz among GMs and scouts because of his arm and release, Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray could be a fast riser coming out of a thin class at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Bray could end up being picked higher than many expect after generating buzz with scouts and GMs, who love his size (6-foot-6) and believe he has by far the best arm and release in this draft.
Bray may not be as mobile as some, but there is certainly a market for big drop-back passers -- Tom Brady hasn't had a bad career, and a quarterback with a similar stature to Bray (Joe Flacco) just won the MVP award at the Super Bowl. Bray has had character issues in the past -- and his maturity is a question -- but there is a lot to like as well.
Teams will get to know him better as he makes visits, and Bray, who left school after his junior year, could end up being a fit for several teams (he has some attributes that quarterback-needy Cleveland would like, for instance). The more comfortable teams become with him the more likely he gets pushed up the board.
He made a good first impression Sunday in the shorts and shirt, and while he must continue honing his accuracy, his arm stood out at the combine.
