Chiefs impressed with undrafted QB Tyler Bray

Former Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Tyler Bray went undrafted in the 2013 NFL draft but was quickly invited to camp with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs gamble on Bray may be paying off as the Kansas City Star reports that the 21-year-old has impressed the Chiefs.

Internally, Bray has impressed the Chiefs’ decision makers as much as anyone in training camp. Bray is here, officially, as an undrafted free agent, but there has never been much doubt about his talent.

There is no question that Bray has a strong arm but questions about his off the field activities aided him in falling out of the draft.

“I have to prove my maturity,” Bray says. “Lots of doubts about my maturity coming out of college, which I knew I had to fix. I’m just trying to be a man in football. I mean, not the man, but, just, be a man. Grow up. Know what you have to do. Study the playbook. It’s not about having fun anymore, it’s a job now. But you can have fun on the field.”

Bray is viewed as the third option on the Chiefs depth chart at quarterback behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniel though some feel Bray could eventually work his way into the starters role.
