2012 Rookie RBs: Cyrus Gray, Kansas City Chiefs
By Cecil Lammey
Posted August 1st, 2012

Strengths: Gray is a jack of all trades and can contribute as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He has good vision, balance, footwork, and determination when running between the tackles. Gray is a patient player who will lower his head to take what the defense gives him if cutback lanes don't develop. Gray is known as a leader and a high-character player with a strong work ethic.

Weaknesses: Gray is a momentum runner who needs to build a head of steam before he's up to speed. He sometimes is too patient as a runner and will run plays out of bounds as he runs out of options. Gray struggles in pass protection.

2012 Outlook: Gray will make the team but is unlikely to contribute as a running back unless Peyton Hillis or Jamaal Charles gets hurt. He can help immediately as a kick returner.

Dynasty Outlook: His upside is limited as he's best served as a role player and third-down back.

NFL Comparison: Mewelde Moore.
