STRENGTHS: Outstanding athletic traits ... has the speed to eat up cushion and stack corners vertically (22.01 mph during Senior Bowl) ... displays natural tracking skills downfield and times his attack well to make grabs over his shoulder or in front of defenders ... explosive and instinctive after the catch with multiple gears to
erase pursuit angles ... shows stem twitch as a route runner to sink his weight and give the quarterback a target ... not a one-trick pony, and can attack the defense at
various depths ... willing and ready as a blocker ... led SMU in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns as a senior.

WEAKNESSES: Slender frame and lacks ideal build ... tracks the football well to be in position, but an inconsistent finisher with too many throws off his hands ... had a
combined 10 drops the past two seasons, including seven in 2021 ... needs to continue developing play strength ... marginal contact balance, and doesn't break many
tackles ... physicality is not his weapon of choice ... unproven vs. a steady diet of press coverage ... unrefined making coverage reads to properly set up corners ...
minimal experience on special teams at SMU ... lack of size leads to durability questions; missed multiple games each of his two seasons at SMU.

SUMMARY: A two-year starter at SMU, Gray was an inside and outside wide receiver in former offensive coordinator Garrett Riley's version of the Air Raid scheme.
After two years at the JUCO level, he showed off his big-play ability with the Mustangs the past two seasons, leading the team in receiving yards and receiving
touchdowns in 2021. A light-footed athlete, Gray can fly before and after the catch, and his targets on tape were evenly distributed to every level of the field. He does
a great job with his over-the-shoulder tracking, but his lackluster finishing skills will draw groans from the quarterback and fans. Overall, Gray requires more polish
with his routes and drops, but with his field speed and playmaking potential, he is just scratching the surface of his ability. He has skills to develop into a weapon
as a team's WR3.
Hey I actually like this guy. Had him mocked to us but in the later rounds.

I like. Looks aggressive. Almost angry.
Theme of this draft so far, SPEED

Seems like a guy who can take the top off and maybe spell Deebo with the wideback stuff.
