2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M
Strong for his size and durable, Gray can handle a lot of carries. He works well through traffic, pushing for more yardage with forward momentum. Gray has an above-average ability to make the first man miss, but not particularly elusive at the second-level. He should be a good fit in zone-blocking schemes since he does show good patience in being able to wait for his blocks, putting one foot down and quickly engaging upfield. Not a burner, but has solid speed and quickness. He will need to improve his ability to run out of single back formations.
Can make all the runs on the perimeter as well as between the tackles. Gray maintains a good pad level and knows when to get scrappy for tough yards. He's ahead of the curve as a pass protector, one of the benefits of staying in school though his senior year.
Gray projects as a fourth round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
