NFL Combine 2013 results: MarQueis Gray leaves teams wondering

USA TODAY Sports

MarQueis Gray played both quarterback and wide receiver while with the Gophers, but a somewhat slow 40 time at the Combine left teams wondering whether he could be an NFL receiver.

Former Minnesota Gophers quarterback and wide receiver MarQueis Gray had an up and down weekend at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium at the 2013 NFL Combine. Gray played both quarterback and wide receiver in college. While the majority of NFL scouts believe that he'd be a better fit in the NFL as a receiver due to his sometimes questionable throwing accuracy, he worked out with the quarterbacks on Sunday.

During his on-field workout, he impressed with a strong performance when it comes to throwing the ball. However, some now question his ability to play receiver in the NFL due to his 4.73 40 time, which was on the slow side for the receivers during the Combine.

As a quarterback at Minnesota, Gray completed 150 of 295 passes for 2,053 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. As a receiver, he caught 60 passes for 766 yards and six touchdowns. He ran the ball quite a lot, racking up 1,731 rushing yards and 12 more touchdowns.

Gray will be throwing and running routes at his pro day in hopes that he can show off his strengths before the NFL Draft. Minnesota's pro day is on March 4.

Gray measured at 6-foot-3 and weighed in at 240 pounds. He did 15 reps on the bench press, had a 30-inch vertical leap, a 110-inch broad jump, 7.25-second three-cone drill and a 4.3-second 20-yard shuffle.
