Bio: 
Three-year starter at free safety who posted 46 tackles and one interception in 2016. Made 53 tackles with two interceptions as a junior. Didn’t start in 2014 and finished the season with 25 tackles. Started all 12 games as a true freshman and finished second on the team with 73 tackles.
Pos: 
Physically imposing defensive back with an undeveloped game. Keeps the action in front of him, quickly moves upfield defending the run and takes good angles to the action. Aggressive, goes after opponents and is an explosive hitter. Works well with cornerbacks.
Neg: 
Really doesn’t play to his 40 time and lacks a closing burst. Late reacting in coverage. Average lateral range.
Analysis: 
Gray looks the part but only plays to it occasionally, and to this point he is much more athlete than football player.
