09/01/13 - Even before they played their final game of the preseason, the Chiefs had made the decision that rookie free agent quarterback Tyler Bray had beaten out holdover Ricky Stanzi for the No. 3 job behind starter Alex Smith and backup Chase Daniel.
Given a chance to play for more than a half against Green Bay, Bray showed the confidence in him was well founded. Working with the No. 2 and 3 offenses against backup defenders from the Packers, he threw three touchdown passes and led the Chiefs to their biggest preseason victory in a decade, topping Green Bay 30-8.
"I'm proud of him; it was awesome," said Daniel. "He finally got a chance to play and show what he's got. We all knew what he had physically, but tonight he was on point mentally. He played a heck of a game."
08/08/13 - QB Tyler Bray, the undrafted free agent out of the University of Tennessee, has shown continued growth as camp has gone on. During recent practices he's been the most productive passer on the field. Granted he's going against the No. 3 defense, but Bray only gets a handful of snaps, and he's making those plays count. Bray has taken control of the battle for the No. 3 quarterback spot over Ricky Stanzi and behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniel. He has the strongest arm of any of the quarterbacks and his practice accuracy has improved dramatically from the team's spring workouts.
05/01/13 - Chiefs Agree to Terms with 13 Rookie Free Agents...QB Tyler Bray (6-6, 215) played in 28 games (24 starts) with Tennessee completing 540 passes on 922 attempts (58.6 pct.) for 7,444 yards with 69 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. Bray prepped at Kingsburg High School in Kingsburg, California. - KCChiefs.com
04/29/13 - Former Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after going undrafted Saturday, according to an ESPN report. The No. 92 overall prospect by NFLDraftScout.com entering the draft and the No. 7-rated quarterback, Bray headed a star-laden group of underclassmen who went undrafted.
Projeced as a third-round prospect, Bray was one of several quarterbacks who slid dramatically during the three-day event due to a general lack of need for most of the 32 teams in the NFL. Florida State's EJ Manuel was the only quarterback selected in the first round, and former Heisman Trophy hopeful Matt Barkley fell all the way to the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round.
Bray left Tennessee following a record-breaking 2012 season that included 3,612 passing yards and 34 touchdowns against 12 interceptions with a 59.6 completion percentage. However, he appeared timid during his media session at the Scouting Combine. Failing to distinguish himself from the second-tier quarterback class, Bray was subject to a significant fall come the draft, and that's exactly what transpired. - Derek Harper, The Sports Xchange
04/29/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: TOP 10 UNDRAFTED UNDERCLASSMEN: 1. QB Tyler Bray, Tennessee (6-6, 232, 5.05)...The most surprising undrafted prospect, underclassman or not, was the former Tennessee passer. He has top-shelf arm talent and can make all the throws necessary at the NFL level with ease, but the off-field concerns and shortcomings above the shoulders were likely too much to overlook for pro teams. Bray is an example of a prospect who has all the physical tools imaginable, but the below-average intangibles likely took him off the board entirely for most teams. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/28/13 - 2013 Tennessee Pro Day: All 32 NFL teams sent representatives to Wednesday’s pro day at the University of Tennessee, where wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and quarterback Tyler Bray were the big attractions. Bray, the 6-6 3/8, 229-pound QB has a big arm, really spins the ball well, but needs to work on his accuracy. Thirteen Tennessee players, plus one each from Tennessee-Martin and Tennessee Tech, participated in the workout, which was held indoors on FieldTurf. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/24/13 - 2012 Tennessee Pro Day: Based on tape, scouts know the Vols were talented. They had one final opportunity to witness the Tennessee standouts together Wednesday during the school's Pro Day. The 6-foot-6 (3/8), 229-pound Bray stood on his numbers from the combine but threw the ball Wednesday. According to a league source on hand for the workout, Bray was "good, not great" during the throwing session, firing in passes to all levels of the field and demonstrating the arm talent that has earned comparisons to anyone to former SEC star Jay Cutler (Vanderbilt). - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/01/13 - 2013 NFL PRO DAY DATES TO REMEMBER: March 20 - Tennessee, Utah...Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray has arguably the most arm talent of anyone in this class and will be able to put that on display back in Knoxville, likely throwing to three other NFL Draft prospects, including Cordarrelle Patterson, Justin Hunter and Mychal Rivera, who all performed well at the combine. The other target Bray will rely on is wide receiver Zach Rogers, who didn't receive a combine invite. Tennessee offensive lineman Dallas Thomas didn't work out at the combine and isn't expected to work out before the draft after surgery on Feb. 7 to repair a torn labrum suffered during Senior Bowl week. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/21/13 - Many prospects, including Alabama right tackle D.J. Fluker, lost weight preparing for the NFL Scouting Combine. Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray found some, adding a stunning 24 pounds to measure in at 6-6, 232 pounds in front of scouts Thursday at the combine. Bray was wearing the same loose-fitting NFL-issued apparel as the other prospects who have filtered in through the media room at Lucas Oil Stadium, but the weight looked evenly distributed. He plans to participate in the drills, including throwing, in Indianapolis.
While Bray physically looked the part, he was noticeably nervous at the podium. He looked interviewers in the eye when answering questions but was surprisingly soft-spoken and short with many of his answers. While Bray's nerves certainly don't mean he won't be successful as an NFL quarterback, he lacked the field-general persona that some scouts expect at the position. This is surprising considering the aggression with which he has played throughout his career with the Volunteers.
To put it simply, Bray possesses as much arm talent as any quarterback in this draft class. His combination of arm strength, accuracy and willingness to throw through tight windows against quality competition has drawn comparisons to fellow former SEC standouts Jay Cutler (Vanderbilt) and Ryan Mallett (Arkansas). Bray attempts -- and often makes -- throws that no other quarterback in this draft class (and few in the NFL) will try. Due to a lack of mobility and a number of acts off the field that have led to questions about his maturity, Bray ranks as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 7 passer in this draft, though, as Dane Brugler pointed out here, the Tennessee passer has the tools to leap up the board this week. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Most to gain: Teams have already spent countless hours evaluating and scouting this group of quarterbacks, but there is always something to gain with a positive performance in Indianapolis. And Tennessee's Tyler Bray, the only junior at the position invited to this year's Combine, might have the most to gain.
Blessed with top-shelf height and arm strength, Bray's collegiate career was marred by mistakes and inconsistency. And while he is a frustrating passer at times, he was also productive with 34 passing scores and 3,612 yards through the air in 2012, impressing scouts with his NFL arm to deliver to every level of the field. Bray has some maturity concerns, but the upside is intriguing. With a positive showing next week at Lucas Oil Stadium, Bray's draft arrow could be pointing north. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
