2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Noah Gray, TE, Duke University

Noah Gray Duke
Duke University tight end Noah Gray is one of the best tight ends in the 2021 NFL Draft. He is a big time talent.

Noah Gray is a 6040, 245 pound tight end who has played in 38 career games. He has 12 career starts for the Blue Devils and is one of my favorite tight ends in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Gray played high school ball at Leominster Senior High School in Massachusetts, and was considered a three star prospect by ESPN. He was rated as the number 70 tight end coming out of high school and it is safe to say they had him rated extremely low.


As a senior in high school, Gray caught 30 passes for 619 yards and scored 8 touchdowns. He would end up selecting Duke and it was a great decision.

As a true freshman in 2017, he played in all 13 games. He finished the season with 5 receptions for 37 yards and caught 2 touchdowns. His first career touchdown came against HBCU’s North Carolina Central.

He would get more playing time in 2018. He would get to start one game, but man he was utilized quite a bit for a player off the bench. He finished the season with 20 receptions for 234 yards and scored one touchdowns. His lone touchdown came against Virginia Tech.

Last season, Noah was named All-ACC second team and finished the year hauling in 51 receptions for 392 yards and scored three touchdowns. He led all ACC tight ends for receptions, and ranked second for all Power 5 conference tight ends.

Gray has played 1,306 career snaps in his career, he has become one of the best players on the Blue Devils roster.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

Noah Gray wears number 87 and he looks very similar to Travis Kelce. I know that is comparing him to the best tight end in the NFL, but I feel deep down inside, Gray has the potential to be a Pro Bowl tight end in the NFL. He is very good in the red-zone, and I would like to see Duke utilize him more near the end zone. He should be hauling in 5 plus touchdowns in 2020 because he causes mismatches. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
