2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M

Running back prospect Cyrus Gray makes the most of his small stature by using his low center of gravity and thick frame to patiently blast through the hole into daylight. He possesses a solid all-around game from pass protection to working between the tackles.

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.
