Biography: Two-year starter who finished with numbers of 14/6/4.5 as a senior after he had 21/4.5 as a junior.
Positives: "Undersized yet tough lineman who does the little things well. Displays strength at the point of attack, holds his ground against blocks, and pushes opponents off the line. Quick and explosive in his overall game, knifes through blocks on the inside, and has a short burst of speed. Gets a lot of momentum going, plays with good pad level, and works hard."
Negatives: Does not use his hands well or do a good job protecting himself. Tends to get tall at times and makes himself an easy target. Engulfed by opponents.
Analysis: Ray was put in a system where he was asked to occupy blockers up front and allow teammates to make plays on the ball. He lacks the size to do the same at the next level yet could get looks as a backup defensive end in a three-man line if he adds bulk to his frame and learns to play with leverage.
