Pos: 
Large, surprisingly athletic tackle with good lateral blocking range. Quickly gets off the snap and keeps his feet moving and his hands active. Bends his knees, works to block with leverage and makes good use of angles. Displays footwork off the edge, jolts defenders with explosive hand punch and rides rushers from their angles of attack. Quick, strong and takes defenders from the action on running downs. Very explosive and works to finish blocks.
Neg: 
Lined up at left tackle but may lack the footwork to stay there at the next level. Must learn to finish blocks. Overcommits and gets beaten by inside moves.
Analysis: 
Gray was a solid college lineman who showed consistent progress in his game. He possesses the size and strength to develop into a starting right tackle at the next level if properly coached.
