Report: Tennessee QB Tyler Bray to enter NFL Draft

NFL

Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray will leave the Vols and enter his name into the upcoming NFL Draft, according to a source reports Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com.

Bray suffered through an up-and-down junior season starting for the 5-7 Vols, completing 268-of-451 (59.4%) for 3,612 yards, 34 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 146.3 rating. A low point of Bray’s season was his benching in the second quarter of the Vols’ 41-18 loss to Vanderbilt.

His NFL projections have ranged as high as the fourth-best quarterback after Matt Barkley (USC), Geno Smith (West Virginia) and Tyler Wilson (Arkansas), or as low as the ninth-best prospect likely to go no higher than the fourth round.

Other draft analysts have encouraged Bray to return to Tennessee for his senior year under new head coach Butch Jones.

Tyler is a good athlete but has serious character flaws and maturity issues. The kid, and that's what he is a KID, needs to play another year of college and figure out his priorities. If he is lucky enough for a NFL team to take a chance on him it won't be till the 5-7th rounds.

I don't think Tyler Bray is the worst Quarterback in the SEC by any means but I'm pretty confident in saying he's the dumbest.

horrible idea.  That kid is not ready.  I thought Erik Ainge was ready, and Bray is no Erik Ainge.

NFL teams should avoid this guy, if they know what's good for them  Massive character issues.  I'm speaking as a UT student myself.  Even aside from his various publicized incidents of bad behavior, I can also testify that it's a consensus opinion among students that Bray is an immature, spoiled, self-entitled jerk.  He's been the least liked Tennessee quarterback on campus in more than 20 years.
