The Morning Fix


Best Value Pick: Johnson is an assignment-sure, selfless beast of a middle linebacker between the tackles who doesn’t mind blowing up lead blocks so his teammates can grab the glory and clean things up.

Questionable Calls: Davis is just not consistent enough when on the field and has injury concerns to boot so it was more than questionable when Kansas City called his name on the second day.

Summary: If Fisher is truly can’t miss, this will work out just fine in the end but Reid and Dorsey looked a little overmatched overall. The book on Reid in his final years in Philly was that the game was slowly passing him by. His first draft in K.C. won’t do anything to dismiss those concerns.
FINAL GRADE: B-

Fox News

Lohr, a 6-foot-4, 290-pounder, was a three-year starter at Vanderbilt as a defensive tackle but had some nagging injuries during his senior season in 2012. He did start 38 consecutive games for Vanderbilt, which finished 9-4 in the Southeast Conference and won the 2012 Music City Bowl, the Commodores’ second straight bowl appearance.

The three-year starter totaled 30 tackles with 11 tackles for loss and two quarterback sacks during his senior season. He ranks among the all-time Vandy defensive tackles with 31.5 tackles for loss and 11 sacks.

He is not, however, the answer for coach Andy Reid and Co. down the road.

Despite supplying the strong arm and great size (6’6″, 232 lbs), Bray struggled with decision-making and is coming off just one solid college campaign. In 2012, Bray tossed 34 touchdown passes to only 12 picks. However, he managed just a 59.4 completion percentage and never hit above 60 percent throughout his career.

At the same time, he was provided with excellent playmaking receivers such as Cordarrelle Patterson, Justin Hunter and, prior to 2012, Da’Rick Rogers.

If anything, Bray’s inability to find a rhythm during the season stands above all else. Against Mississippi State, Bray threw for two touchdowns and one pick. He only completed 54.2 percent of his attempts. Thereafter, Bray fared even worse against Alabama (48.1 completion percentage) and tossed two picks.

Bleacher Report

The Sports Fan Loyalty Index, conducted annually for the last 21 years by New York-based Brand Keys Inc., looks at more than wins and losses. It also looks at three more emotional measures such areas as franchise history and tradition, fan bonding (are players particularly respected and admired?) , pure entertainment (wins and losses, sure, but also how entertaining is their play) and authenticity (how well they play as a team).

The index was designed to help team management and NFL officials measure fan loyalty in home and national markets with an eye toward identifying areas, particularly emotional ones, that need brand reinforcement, said Robert Passikoff, Brand Keys founder and president.

    Who knows with Bray, maybe 2-3 years of learning from Reid and Smith will be enough to work on his mechanics and maturity will come with age

      Don’t be looking past Chase now sir :)

    Every time I here something new coming out on Tyler Bray it’s more negative than the one I heard before. How does this happen? At this rate within another day or two he wil be reduced to a blind, noodle armed, moronic, sex maniac that hates winning so much he tries to throw interceptions on purpose but lacks the accuracy to even pull that off….and..and…the only reason he came out early was because he couldn’t stand another year wasting away in some classroom when he could be out drinking and driving through school zones…..more scoop next week.

    I think there is so much negativity on T. Bray because a lot of these idiots posting all of the bad things about him and the BIG MISTAKE the CHIEFS made are the same people that were doing all of these mock drafts and had him so high on their boards! And now they are embarrassed that he wasn’t drafted and the CHIEFS got such a GREAT DEAL on an UDRFA!
    Hey if he doesn’t work out and he would rather spend time eating BBQ, drinking beer, and embarrassing himself in front of Professional Players and Pro Bowlers that’s his choice! He was a small investment to the franchise to begin with and if we hadn’t nabbed him up I guarantee you someone else would have in a heart beat! I think if nothing else we will have a good 2nd string backup for the future, If he grasps the fact he is now in the NFL and that can stand for 2 things the National Football League where an undrafted rookie can go on to do great things, or if you don’t take advantage of your opportunity it can also stand for the Not For Long league as well!! As always, Just my opinion!!!
