Throughout his Duke career, tight end Noah Gray was a reliable and versatile target. Based on the tape from this week's Senior Bowl, though, he also can make the spectacular play from time to time.
Saturday will mark the annual playing of the Reese's Senior Bowl, which can have a major impact on a player's draft stock. Practices in Mobile, Ala., began earlier this week, with the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers providing their coaching staffs.
Gray, who was invited after finishing his time in Durham with 105 catches—the most by a tight end in program history—and eight touchdowns in 48 games, made his presence felt earlier today with a one-handed snag near the goal line. Although it was during drills, the grab was still an impressive display of hands and hops.
Whether the Massachusetts native keeps it going in Alabama remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure—don't underestimate Gray coming over the middle.
