Tyler Bray: Video Highlights for Former Tennessee QB
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.
Tough Throw Against Georgia
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).
Willing to Throw into Traffic
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.
In this game against South Carolina, he converts a 3rd-and-10 on a pass into tight coverage. Three red jerseys surround his receiver, Justin Hunter, yet he hits Hunter in the numbers (play ends at 1:31).
Deep Ball Against NC State
This play shows Tyler Bray at his best.
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).
On the play, Bray and Patterson beat one of the top cornerbacks in the upcoming draft, David Amerson.
Bray Goes Deep on the Wolfpack Again
Later against NC State, Tyler Bray again uses play action to set up a deep pass play.
He flings a bomb to Zach Rogers for a 73-yard touchdown (play ends at 2:02).
Big Day vs. Troy
This was one of many big plays Tyler Bray made in a 55-48 win over Troy in late 2012.
After faking a pitch, Bray squares up and throws a deep ball to Justin Hunter, who snatches it for a 40-yard touchdown (play ends at :54).
Bray finished that game with 530 passing yards and five touchdowns.
