QB Bray satisfied with pro day performance

Tennessee QB Tyler Bray put a bow on his pre-draft scheduled with his pro day in Knoxville today. Overall he was relatively satisfied with what he showed on the field.

“I think I did okay,” Bray said. “There were a few throws I’d like to have back, but we’ve been working hard. The receivers ran great routes and ran hard all day. I’m really proud of them.”

Bray, who is the only junior eligible QB in the draft class, said he did not have a specific script with a specific number of throws Wednesday.

“I didn’t really limit it to a count,” he said. “It was however many routes it ended up being. We had a bunch of receivers, a tight end and a fullback to throw to so however many routes they needed to get through their routes was how many throws I had to do.”

Bray said his main focus today was to show consistent footwork from start to finish during his throwing session. The feedback he got from scouts and coaches at the NFL Combine last month was that his feet were not consistent with drops, set up and delivery.

“There were a lot of questions about my footwork kind of lagging towards the end of games and then your accuracy is all over the place,” he said. “So I wanted to come out here and show I could do my footwork and keep the same throughout the workout.”

Bray weighed in at 230 pounds, 15 pounds heavier than his listed weight during the 2012 college season.

“I weighed in at 209 the first day at my training facility,” Bray said. “The last day I was 235 and then I was 232 at the Combine. I was just eating right and working out. I want to stay between 230 and 235. I’m going to continue to work out and keep my weight on. I’ve worked too hard to put it on so I don’t want to lose it.”

Bray says the weight gain has helped him most in putting more velocity on the ball thanks to his improved core strength.
