If the Chiefs had been able to get a pick in the mid-late 2nd round and then decided to take Bray, would that have made the fan-base happy, being that they drafted a 2nd round QB? Bray was widely considered the most talented QB in this draft class, but his maturity and preparation were highly questioned (to the point where he wasn't drafted at all). Most draftniks had him pegged in the mid 2nd to late 3rd. If Reid had taken him in the 2nd round with the assumption that he could eventually get the best of Bray, would that have calmed the anti-Alex mob?
Does the fact that he was undrafted cause you to have lower expectations from any particular player solely because they were undrafted as opposed to the pre-draft expectations of that player? Given everything that we know about Tyler Bray, do you expect less from him because he has "UDFA" next to his name instead of "2nd rd?" I don't. I can tell you that if there had been a run on QBs early in the 2nd like everyone was anticipating, I would've been happy with a Bray selection late in the 2nd or with the first pick in the 3rd. Heading into the draft, no part of me thought Bray would go undrafted and that we would have a shot signing him as a UDFA.
I still view Tyler Bray as a 2nd round talent if not higher, based on talent alone. If you took Bray's body and talent alone, he's EXACTLY what you're looking for in a #1 overall, "franchise QB." His issue is between the ears... and not because he's incapable of performing at an elite level, but because his maturity doesn't seem to be where it NEEDS to be as an "elite franchise QB." Holding a clipboard for 2 or 3 seasons behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniel in an Andy Reid system could turn this guy into not just a steal of the draft, but perhaps one of the top 5 players in the class altogether.
Time will tell, but if things go well for Bray, he has the tools to give the Chiefs not only the opportunity to take their franchise LT #1 overall, but also get their franchise QB in the same draft. Not many teams get that chance and Tyler Bray falls into a situation in KC that could allow him to excel.
