Interesting tidbit from Tyler Bray's father.
Jeff said his son is "very excited" to be in Kansas City, but claims that two NFL teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, said they would draft Tyler. The Steelers ultimately chose Landry Jones out of Oklahoma.
I guess the Steelers liked Jones a lot better but I know quite of few people would have preferred someone like John Simon in round 4 and a developmental QB like Tyler Bray somewhere between the 5th and 7th round. I like Jones more but Bray is 21 which may be a better fit as a developmental QB than a 24 year old like Jones and Bray is probably more talented. He had the biggest arm in the draft. Then again, Jones seems more mature, much smarter and could be ready to step in and play for an injured Roethlisberger much sooner. Time will tell if the Steelers were right on that one.
