Danny Gray got his start at the junior college level playing at Blinn College before spending the last two years at SMU. In 2019, Gray led the team with 54 receptions for 877 yards and eight touchdowns. He totaled 958 all-purpose yards. As a true freshman, Gray registered 15 catches for 409 yards and six touchdowns. The 6-foot and 186-lb wide receiver finished his juco career averaging 18.6 yards per reception.

His big-play ability earned him a spot on SMU's football team where he showed out big time in 2021. He finished fifth in the class in yards after the catch per reception (8.5).

Gray also boasted a 19% target share and 24% air yards share.

With elite speed - 4.33 40-yard dash - separation skills and experience playing out wide, Gray fits the archetype as a Day 3 player that could easily outperform his draft capital. Vertical prowess is a common trait among late-round WRs that make noise as rookies.

He looks a lot like Nelson Agholor on tape - drops also included. His 12.5% drop rate is the 7th-worst mark in the class among WRs with at least 50 targets last season.

Positives - Great Speed, Very good after the catch, Good Route Runner
Negatives - Slight frame, Can get jammed by press coverage, Durability has been an issue
