What I like:
Bray is a tall quarterback with a strong arm who has all the tools to succeed. His accuracy is solid and is capable of making some tight throws. He shows the ability to scan the field and go through his progressions to find the open man. He is experienced taking snaps from under center and his pocket mechanics are further along than most quarterbacks. He’s smart with the football and rarely makes bad decisions. Is very good at throwing his receivers open.
What I don’t like:
He still has to continue to work on filling out his frame as he was freakishly skinny his freshman year. His accuracy is still inconsistent at this point and still lacks pinpoint accuracy. While he shows the ability to go through his progressions he’s still developing in this area and must continue to improve. He’s not very mobile and is at his best in the pocket. Throws on the run tend to be inaccurate. His deep ball can be flat at times. Will drop his release point at times and even side-arm some throws.
It’s impressive what Bray has accomplished in his first 2 seasons at Tennessee. As long as he continues to improve as he gets more experienced I don’t see why he can’t be in the discussion as a legitimate franchise quarterback prospect. Of course his high rankings are based on the assumption that he will continue to improve. As we’ve seen beforeÂ (Jake Locker) this isn’t always the case.
