2012 NFL Draft: Texas A&M's Cyrus Gray Works Out For Chiefs

Ryan Tannehill is making all of the noise for Texas A&M prospects in the NFL Draft, but he's far from the only one whose name will be called in two weeks. Cyrus Gray is an exciting prospect at running back for many teams, and the Kansas City Chiefs might be one of them. Aaron Wilson is reporting that he recently worked out for Romeo Crennel's team, who could check out Gray in the middle rounds.

Wilson writes, "Gray ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at the NFL scouting combine where he also had a 32 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 9-6 broad jump, a 7.17 three-cone drill and bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times."

The Chiefs could definitely use some insurance at the running back position given that Jamaal Charles missed almost the entire 2011 season with a torn ACL. They've signed Peyton Hillis this offseason, but it's only a one-year deal. Gray might not get many carries in his first season, but he'd give the Chiefs a solid partner for Charles as he recuperates fully.
