Of all the offensive skill prospects at the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game practices in Allen, Texas, none created more intrigue coming in than Minnesota quarterback/wide receiver/tight end MarQueis Gray.
Gray entered Minnesota as a 4-star, top-15 national quarterback recruit, and went on to start at wide receiver and quarterback during his four years with the Gophers.
At the weigh-in on Monday, Gray measured 6'3 5/8" and 239 pounds, with ideal 10 1/8" hands and a very impressive 80 3/4" wingspan. He has the pedigree and measureables to fit well in 21st century NFL pass offenses that use athletic tight ends as downfield weapons to create mismatches against slower linebackers or smaller safeties.
Gray was mostly lined up in the slot for the Tuesday Nation practice, which was moved inside because of inclement weather. While he flashed fluid athleticism for such a big man, just about everything else in his game belonged on a blooper reel.
