QB Tyler Bray Mid round project?
 
I was watching ESPN break down of Bray 6'6 233lbs very strong arm (they say he reminds them of Jeff George) all say he has the talent of a 1st rounder but could be a 3rd - 5th rounder.Can make every throw but will make bone head plays. Needs time to develop and be coached out of bad habits Footwork read recognition preparation. Is Bray worth a mid to late round gamble?

Analysis
STRENGHTS: Bray possesses a great deal of natural arm talent and possesses even more confidence in his ability to fit the ball between tight windows. In this way, he is reminiscent of former SEC standout Jay Cutler (Vanderbilt).

He's consistently more accurate when driving the ball rather than touch passes and has become especially lethal due to his timing and accuracy on the slant and post with his big receivers. Furthermore, he might be the best of the top quarterback prospects at delivering a consistently ball on the deep out.

WEAKNESSES: He boasts a very quick release but doesn't fully take advantage of his height due to a three-quarter delivery. He's also a bit lazy with his fundamentals, failing to step into the direction of his passes. This consistently forces his receivers to adjust to his throws, cutting down on the potential for yardage after the catch and leading his teammates into some hellacious hits.

For all of natural gifts, Bray remains a work in progress when projecting him to the NFL. For one, he takes the vast majority of his snaps out of the shotgun. More important, while willing to step up into a disintegrating pocket, he is a long-legged, relatively slow-footed athlete who has only marginal mobility overall.

COMPARES TO: Jay Cutler, Bears -- Like Cutler, Bray has tremendous arm strength - and confidence in it - but seems to enjoy the challenge of tougher throws and will often attempt them rather than take safer options.

From late third round on is worth the risk.
He's got everything except the grey matters between his ears.
Work on his mechanics:
Get a guy with a pitch fork running behind him and poke him every time he drops his ball-carrying elbow down.
Get him to throw balls at multi targets that are moving across the field so he can learn to go through his reads better. Slap him on the head every time he's too quick or too slow.
Implant Keenum's brain into his head.

The tools are there he has the arm. Lets see if HOU can develop a guy with talent. AKA NE with Mallett.

Mallett is an excellent comparison to Bray. Strong armed SEC pocket passers that need coaching and maturity. I think Bray would be worth investing a 3rd, but the Texans have so many roster holes and 4 QBs on the roster. It doesn't seem likely they will spend a pick on a QB.

mallets a good comparison but he also reminds me of rothlesburger without the mobility

4th or later and I wouldn't have an issue with it. Kubiak is supposed to be able to mentor QB's, and this kid has a ton of potential, but the key is he lacks mobility. That gives me pause.

I'd take a shot in the 4th or later but honestly, cerberal qb's seem like the only kind kubes wants. If you make rash decisions no matter your athletic talent your off the board.
