As I watch all the reports come out about the draft on Thursday, I cant help but think that a team will take a chance on Bray earlier than they are predicting. I honestly believe that if you threw out all the film and off the field problems for all the qb's, and just brought them out and made them throw, Tyler would be a lock top ten selection. Am I wearing my orange glasses or do others agree....
You just never know. If I was a GM I'd be staying away, but it only takes one who wants to accept the risk of Bray never matching his physical ability with emotional and mental greatness.

I forget the game, but this past season I remember a td pass he threw down the seam to Rivera. One of the best throws/catch of the season. I turned to a friend and said " He just made himself a lot of money." I'm sure I cussed him soon after but that just sums Tyler up.
I can see a team like Oakland or Dallas or even Arizona taking a shot at him. No earlier than second round though. I think it's be good for him to go to a place with an established mature QB. Green Bay is the best place for him ImO.

That's throwing out two of the most crucial parts of evaluating. I'm a Titans fan that's not sold on JL and even I don't want them drafting Bray unless its in a later round. Just my two cents though.

This is basically the same throw and I remember being slack-jawed when he did it. Epic catch, too.

I'm a Titans fan also and Nashville and Knoxville stations were discussing that they had interest in Tyler. I would love it if they took him. I just think he has a much higher ceiling than most QB's in this draft... To be fair, he may have more bust potential at the same time...
bray plays one play at a time,i dont know if 1 more year he would have got it here or not?
but he just cant read defense and i guess that would come from not watching film on each
team.i hate to say it and many of us knows this 4 sure ,he couldn't win a big sec game.
i believe that will kill his stock in this draft,because they watched and seen,the same bray we
did florida game showed me he just plain give up.
best wishes tho maybe he will make it,but i dont see it happen.
The Titans have WAY to many holes to be taking that big of a risk. Like I said if he were still sitting there in the late rounds - which I wouldn't expect - then say go for it.
I think Bray has a lot of growing up to do if he's ever going to start in the NFL. If I were a GM with a solid but aging QB and he was still there in a later round I may take a chance with him. That said, I think he goes late in the 2nd.

I think Bray could make a lot of sense for the Titans in the third or fourth round, if he falls that far. I agree that they have plenty of other needs to address this year, but they also have to think about another possible long-term solution at quarterback in case they decide this year that Locker isn't their quarterback of the future.

If that turns out to be the case Munchak is gone too. He needs guys who can make the team better asap.
Fourth is what I was thinking but I think he'll be gone by then. Third just seems too early for a guy that - in my opinion - doesn't have the mentality to be the leader that his position demands.
Todd McShay just called Tyler most talented QB in the draft, squanders his talent.
For all of the knocks on Bray, I will say this:
Sal Sunseri is the worst thing that ever happened to him. If that defense isn't a complete debacle, we win a few more meaningful games and Tyler has a much better reputation going into this draft.
Your right about that. Not often a team averages 36 points a game and has a losing season.
If you just drafted on physical ability then Jeff George would have won 10 Super Bowls and JaMarcus Russell would have won 5. The point is that you can't throw all the other stuff away. The Gruden session was beyond embarrassing. And you have to throw out the film for Bray because apparently he doesn't know how to study it and learn from it. I think there is an underrated Tyler in this draft but his name is Wilson, not Bray.
Munchak and Rex Ryan are DMW. Then the Titans can spend another few years trying to find the next Jeff Fisher when they should have kept the one they had.
That's what Gruden pointed out. For every peak with Bray the are also deep valleys. Name one meaningful game where he delivered in the clutch.
