Scouts, Inc. Evaluation
Wray is a prospect with a lot of upside and while he is still developing in terms of throwing mechanics, he would be an outstanding fit as a spread offense quarterback. He only possesses marginal height, but he is in an offense that features a lot of the three steps and five step passing game that focuses on timing and also changes the launch point for him from time-to-time. This is a player that shows very good footwork in his drop. He gets back quickly, sets up with good balance and has also shown the ability to plant and throw once he hits his fifth step. He gains terrific depth away from center. He also does a nice job with play fakes, especially on nakeds and bootlegs that get him out of the pocket–this is where he can be very good. He throws extremely well on the run to both sides– maybe as well if not better than anyone in the class. He squares shoulders, keeps two hands on the ball and throws with authority and displays tremendous zip on throws when on the move. Wray, when his feet are set can really throw the football with good power and zip. Possesses good RPM’s and doesn’t lose much when driving the ball vertically. It is no secret that he has had great personnel around him (both Terry Hawthorne and Kraig Appleton were on this team) so he will take some chances, but he generally makes very good decisions with the football. He will stay within the pocket, work through progressions and only uses his athleticism when he needs to. However, when he needs to he can be very dangerous and is a very gifted runner. He shows explosive initial quickness, vision and ability to keep a play alive and gain yards on the ground. Foot speed is good, good enough to play another position too. While we really like a lot of things Wray does, he does however possess a quirky delivery. Carries the ball a bit awkwardly and this creates an unorthodox delivery. He can get rid of the ball very quickly and with good authority though. You must get to the end result to accept the process because he is a player that has been extremely productive and also very accurate for the most part. He has a downfield arm, but this is where his accuracy tapers off. Overall, Wray if in the right scheme could really be a good college football player. He has a live arm, is athletic and makes plays, but will also battle some height limitations too. Good prospect with upside.
