NOAH GRAY | Duke | TE | #87 | SR | 6036 | 240 | 4.62 | Leominister, MA | Leominster Senior HS | 04.30.99
Wearing a variety of hats for the Duke football team, tight end Noah Gray is the type of flexible athlete who can cause a variety of mismatches. Some of his best reps come from the H back position where he is given a free release to attack second level defenders, causing a ton of mismatches. Gray is a very smooth athlete who is extremely flexible for the position. This allows him to run a varied route tree with high success. He also offers enough juice to threaten the seam with some regularity. In the run game, his best reps come from a detached position, especially on cross zone reps, taking on the role of a glorified fullback. Gray is an underdeveloped move piece who lacks the physical profile to play in line on a high volume of reps. There needs to be an increased amount of explosive plays for a player of his profile. There is a clear path to playing time on the next level. With Gray’s combination of smoothness, flexibility and versatility, he should warrant heavy volume as a secondary pass receiver from the tight end position.
Selected as a second team All-ACC selection during the 2019 season, Gray has started 12 of 38 career games played at Duke, including 663 yards and six touchdowns on 76 receptions. Played at Leominster Senior High School in Leominster, Massachusetts for head coach Dave Palazzi. Was considered a three star recruit by 247Sports and ESPN. Also played basketball while at Leominster.
