At 6'6", Tyler Bray is one of the tallest quarterback prospects in the upcoming NFL draft. With a strong, accurate arm, he could be selected as early as the second round.
In three years at Tennessee, Bray threw for 7,444 yards with 69 touchdowns. He had a solid junior season, throwing for 34 touchdowns before leaving school early for the NFL.
Here, we will take a look at some of Bray's collegiate highlights.
Playing against the then-No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs, Tyler Bray makes an excellent throw down the field to beat the defender and hit his receiver in the hands (play ends at :45).
This shows how accurate Bray can be in the pocket, and it was Bacarri Rambo, a player who will be drafted to play safety in the NFL, that he beat on the play.
Here, Bray shows some intangibles.
Facing a 4th-and-5, Bray lines up in the shotgun formation and performs the rarely seen quick kick (play ends at 2:24).
It works out quite well, as he pins the Florida Gators inside their own five-yard line.
In the same game against Florida, Tennessee is driving while leading the game 14-13.
Recognizing he has single coverage on the outside, Tyler Bray throws a perfect back-shoulder pass to Cordarrelle Patterson, which results in a nice gain and sets the Vols up inside the Gators' 10-yard line (play ends at 7:37).
Tyler Bray has drawn many comparisons to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
Bray has a strong arm which he may rely on a little too heavily. Still, he is willing to make tough throws against coverage.

Using a nice play action and then a pump fake to set things up, Bray throws a pretty ball for a long touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson against North Carolina State (play ends at :49).
