One of the biggest surprises of the 2013 NFL draft was the fact that Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Tyler Bray went undrafted. Bray didn't need to wait long before his unemployment status changed.

Despite reports that Bray was headed to Miami, ESPN's Field Yates reports that the former Tennessee Volunteer will sign with the Kansas City Chiefs

According to Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage, Bray has signed with the Miami Dolphins.

No word just yet on the terms of the deal.

Bray will join Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore and Pat Devlin as quarterbacks on Miami's depth chart. Although Tannehill has the reputation of Miami's quarterback of the future, Bray has the physical tools necessary to thrive at the next level.

Bray stands at 6'6" and 232 pounds with 33" arms and 9.25" hands. NFL.com compared the Tennessee gunslinger to Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears.

Playing in the vaunted SEC, Bray threw for 3,612 yards, 34 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on a completion rate of 59.4 percent in 2012. As a testament to his strength and mobility, Bray was only sacked eight times all season.

While questions remain about his decision making, Bray's size and elite arm strength were expected to be intriguing enough to lead to his being drafted.

For perspective, ESPN's Scouts Inc. had projected Bray as a third-round draft choice to the San Diego Chargers. They weren't alone, as a majority of evaluators believed him to be intriguing enough to go in the middle rounds, at the latest.

Bray proceeded to go undrafted.

Bray topped 400 yards in three games this past season. That includes a monster performance during a 55-48 win over the Troy Trojans, as Bray threw for 530 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions.

Unfortunately, Bray's draft stock was damaged by the fact that his Volunteers went 5-7 on the season.

During his final collegiate game, Bray threw for 293 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions on 20-of-34 passing in leading the Vols to a 37-17 home win against the Kentucky Wildcats.

It's now time to see whether he can translate those abilities to the NFL.
