Danny Gray Bio

Danny Gray was a 3-star prospect out of Madison high school in Dallas, TX. Danny Gray started off at Blinn College (community college) in 2018 where he caught 15 receptions for 409 yards and 6 touchdowns. His speed and elusiveness was evident as he blazed past defenders. In the following season, he led the team in receptions and receiving yards, putting up 877 yards through the air. He had a number of offers from top programs that noticed his talent at the juco level. He ultimately chose to stay home in Dallas, committing to SMU.

Transferring to SMU, Gray immediately commanded a 13.03% target share. That target share grew to 15.38% target share his senior season. During that last year, he shared the field with Grant Calcaterra and Reggie Roberson Jr. He led the team in yards per reception and receiving yards. He elevated his draft status at the Combine putting up an 82nd percentile Speed Score and a slightly below average Burst Score. Projected to go in the 5th round, he’s a fast player that dominated at the juco level. He’s not a recommended pickup in any format.

Danny Gray was selected in the 3rd round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. It’s unclear how he’ll be used in a run-first offense. He could slide in as the number 2 or number 1 with Aiyuk on the roster if Deebo leaves the 49ers. There’s just too many unknowns.
