I'm trying to forget lol. Gray had a solid year. Besides the game against you guys. He has solid size and speed. Doesn't have very good ball skills but is a sure tackler. I think he'll make a team.

You're right; low-round rookies get signed to 4-year deals @ $390K/yr (rookie minimum) with a variable signing bonus (5-6 figures depending on round) that goes against each team's rookie cap.  1st rounders have a team-option for a 5th year.

Still not too shabby for your first year out of school.

Good team to try to make as a defensive back. Versatility might help him out, as he'd have to play special teams to make the team.

Local NFL teams should always keep a few roster spots open for local college players who might not other wise make it in the NFL. Let them play for 2 years, just their fans can gradually say goodbye.

 I'm saying this more for Jordan Kovacs who i'll miss watching on the football field after this year if no teams choose him on draft day. I'm not a Lions fan but I'd check out a game or 2 just to be able to meet certain players
