Overview

Gray is a well-rounded back who can block, run and catch the ball out of the backfield. He has great size and has been productive as a pass catcher throughout his career. He is highly elusive in the open field and understands the nuances of short-to-intermediate routes in the passing game. He is ideal for a screen-heavy team, as he has reliable hands and is patient when waiting for plays to develop. He likes to bounce the ball outside, sometimes too quickly, but he is effective when doing so. There are knocks on his game as an inside runner, which will keep him from getting drafted as an every-down back in the NFL. He does, however, bring value as a returner. Although not explosive, he is effective in this role. Look for him to be selected in the middle rounds.
</SECTION><SECTION>Analysis

<ARTICLE>Strengths

Gray is a big and athletic back who hits the hole hard and is elusive for a man of his size. He is one of those natural runners who understands when to weave and when to run with power. He has been highly productive and his style of running with power in his legs makes him a reliable short-yardage option early in his career. </ARTICLE><ARTICLE>
Weaknesses

Gray is not a burner and can have slow feet at times. He usually picks his spots, but he can be hesitant in the backfield. Despite his size, he struggles as a pass protector at times. It takes Gray a few steps to reach full speed, and he won't be a threat to take it the distance at the next level. </ARTICLE></SECTION>

Cyrus Gray, Texas A&M (projected: 5th)
5’10″, 198 lbs; projected 4.4 40 yard dash
198 rushes for 1,100 yards & 12 TDs in 2011

I watched a lot of Ryan Tannehill’s play this past season, and one player kept grabbing my eye every time Tannehill dropped back to pass: Gray is a fun pass blocker to watch, as he seems to love punishing pass rushers despite his measley sub-200 lbs size. That kind of tenacity despite his size is endearing to me as a football fan. There’s no real place for him in Kansas City, but we’d be fools not to take him if the price were really, really reasonable. Gray has really good hands coming out of the backfield and he seems to have some of the jukes in the flat that other third-down specialists like Pead and Miller lack. Gray’s never going to be a feature back, nor is he going to be much more than a solid guy in rotation, but that’s more than can be said for most guys of his diminuitive size.

Go Chiefs.

I only deviated from Direckshun's recommendation one time in his consensus mock polls and that deviation was a vote for Cyrus Gray. I don't really know much about him, but I feel like I had a hand in convincing Scott Pioli to take him so I hope it works out.

Oh - and once again - this only serves as even more evidence of how bad the McCluster pick was.

This is where you get small, quick, agile(ish) guys that have no chance to be any kind of every-down player.

McCluster would've been a fine pick in the 6th round - just like Gray.

This is a good pick, especially in the 6th round. Lets face it, Cassel is here to stay so we need as diverse an offense as possible...that's been addressed pretty well so far. If we can't compete for the playoffs this year, there will be no way to hide Matt.

Round 6, Pick 12 (182) Cyrus Gray RB 5'10" 206 Texas A&M 69.7

Pick Analysis: Bucky Brooks' take: Gray is an underrated runner with outstanding vision and cutback skills. He catches the ball well out of the backfield and could contribute to the Chiefs' offensive attack as a change-of-pace weapon.

We're going to the old two back set that features both the fullback and HB as runners.

Think Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris.

Doesn't seem to have any outstanding attributes except for his first cut. Seems to have a knack for making the right cut at the right time and slipping through the smallest of openings.

Doesn't have the ability to break away or even break tackles. Not really shifty enough to make people miss but his ability to maximize yards out of his first cut is pretty good.

Seems really consistent at what he does. He will come in handy if our line opens up holes for him because he doesn't need a big hole. He might be especially effective on short yardage, IMO.

No QB for Chiefs?

You already know they haven't drafted one yet. The Chiefs are scheduled to have five picks as the draft concludes today and while Kirk Cousins of Michigan State might be an enticing prospect at this point, Romeo Crennel this morning didn't sound like the Chiefs were in the mood to draft Cousins or any other quarterback.
The Chiefs already have a developmental quarterback in Ricky Stanzi,a fifth-round pick last year.
''We’ll have to feel good about whoever we look at that he’ll have a chance to compete with Stanzi or he has to be better than Stanzi, which might be tough at this point,'' Crennel said.

Gray is a well-rounded back who can block, run and catch the ball out of the backfield. He has great size and has been productive as a pass catcher throughout his career. He is highly elusive in the open field and understands the nuances of short-to-intermediate routes in the passing game. He is ideal for a screen-heavy team, as he has reliable hands and is patient when waiting for plays to develop. He likes to bounce the ball outside, sometimes too quickly, but he is effective when doing so. There are knocks on his game as an inside runner, which will keep him from getting drafted as an every-down back in the NFL. He does, however, bring value as a returner.

EXCELLENT! cant wait to watch the highlight reels, but if this report is close to the mark, he's EXACTLY what i had in mind... a good sized, do it all type... exactly.

The only problem i see so far, is that Cassel will never be able to throw the guy a decent ****ing screen pass.

Although not explosive, he is effective in this role. Look for him to be selected in the middle rounds.
</SECTION><SECTION>Analysis

<ARTICLE>Strengths

Gray is a big and athletic back who hits the hole hard and is elusive for a man of his size. He is one of those natural runners who understands when to weave and when to run with power. He has been highly productive and his style of running with power in his legs makes him a reliable short-yardage option early in his career. </ARTICLE><ARTICLE>
Weaknesses

Gray is not a burner and can have slow feet at times. He usually picks his spots, but he can be hesitant in the backfield. Despite his size, he struggles as a pass protector at times. It takes Gray a few steps to reach full speed, and he won't be a threat to take it the distance at the next level. </ARTICLE></SECTION>

Am I missing something? Where is the great size? Isn't he around Jamaal Charles size?

Great size to me is 5'10 225 and up.

If you're around 200, 205, I'd prefer you have a little explosion in your game.

This seems straight forward to me. Stanzi is the solid #2 going into camp. They aren't going to draft someone who isn't going to beat out Brady Quinn at 3rd string.

I think you've got the #2 and #3 reversed. If Stanzi was the clear number 2, they wouldn't have signed BQ and they would have drafted a new developmental guy.

So you sign a RB if he gets hurt again.

Hillis and Gray is quality depth behind Charles. We don't need to carry 4.

It's going be funny watching McCluster make plays this season. LMAO @ YOU.

McCluster will fit in just fine, if anything this adds good work competition for him prove the ney sayers wrong. I am looking forward to McCluster on the field and busting some moves. McCluster is fun to watch. I also look forward to see what Cyrus Gray has to offer but his time may come later as he won't get much playing time with Crennel wanting rookies to earn there spots.

Eh, i'm still not sold on where he fits now.

As a Pioli second rounder i think he'll still get his fair shots in camp, but his competition has taken a quantum leap this year, both at rb & whatever/slash kinda receiver.

He may not make it past the summer at this point, imo... but i honestly do think he might yet be a great fit somewhere, he's a late bloomer.

I heard that he ran a 4.45. Not a burner, but he's not Lendale White either.

He's probably just camp fodder. Another runner in case Charles has a set back or anything. Jamaal isnt going to get alot of reps in TC. Then maybe he's off to the practice squad if we dont suffer any injuries.

He was supposed to go in somewhere between rounds 3 and 5 according to what I've been hearing. Looking at his tape, he doesn't look like "fodder" to me.

From what I see, he has excellent patience in waiting for the seam to open up allowing his blocks to be set up. His speed is decent and burst is just okay for me. What I don't like is that most of the time when he is engaged by tacklers his "legs go dead". This will have to be a "behavioral conditioned response" that will have to be "unlearned in reverse" over time, otherwise he is Thomas Jones II.

Enough with this stupid urban legend of Herm bullshit. Not going to go through this again but Herm had little to nothing to do with draft picks. Thank Kuharich that Pioli froze out in the 2009 draft and then fired for our 2007-2008 drafts.

He's saying that after Herman fucking Edwards went over Carl's head and talked Clark Hunt into completely tearing down the roster and beginning the rebuild from teh ground up, Carl became nothing more than a figurehead, out of respect, by Clark for his father.

Been reading the A&M boards a bit about to see what they think of Tannehill and Gray. Their opinions of whether or not Tannehill is a legit franchise QB seems to be split (maybe 60/40 in favor of him). However, ALL of them genuinely love Cyrus Gray and believe he is an absolute steal in the 6th round. He has evidently been a fan favorite over there since 2010.
