Tennessee’s Tyler Bray has so many of the qualities NFL scouts like to see in a starting quarterback that he should have been drafted: a big arm, classic size (6-feet-6, 232 pounds) and plenty of college production.
Bray has enough negatives that he went through seven rounds of this year’s NFL Draft without being selected: a lack of maturity and poor work habits.
His ability still makes Bray an intriguing prospect. The Chiefs will be the team that will try to develop him. They signed him after the draft, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The addition of Bray gives the Chiefs an interesting mix at quarterback. They traded over the winter with San Francisco for the starter, Alex Smith, and shortly after signed as a free-agent Chase Daniel from New Orleans to be his backup.
The race for number three now includes Bray, Ricky Stanzi and Alex Tanney. The Chiefs may decide to trim the list to four by the time training camp begins in late July.
