Tyre (pronounced ty-REE) Brady played at four high schools in four years, three in Miami and one in Texas (he was academically ineligible one season). The movement continued in his college career, moving on from Miami to Marshall after new head coach Mark Richt took over the program. Brady had started 3 of 8 games in 2015 (9-112-12.4, one TD) but was suspended for four games. He redshirted in 2014 for the Hurricanes, playing in two games with no receptions. After sitting out the 2016 season as a redshirt transfer student, he led his new team in receiving, catching 62 passes for 942 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 starts, while missing two contests due to an undisclosed injury. Brady was voted first-team All-Conference USA for his play as a senior, leading the Herd with 71 receptions for 1,002 yards (14.1 per) and nine scores in 13 starts.

Overview
Elements of Brady's game can be difficult to reconcile, making his projection challenging. His technique for making simple, short catches can be rudimentary, but he'll make circus catches that require intense focus down the field. He lacks separation explosion in and out of his breaks but somehow finds catch space for himself. He lacks explosiveness so he'll need to learn to win with more polished route-running to make it as a quality NFL backup.
Strengths
  • Tapered, athletic build with long arms
  • Plays with even-keeled demeanor and is hard to rattle
  • Short-staccato steps drive some early release quickness
  • Outside-in release finds him freedom against press
  • Powers through redirection and excessive contact to maintain route timing
  • Shows ability to snare it well outside his frame
  • Activates relentless ball focus down the field
  • Acrobatic body control in mid-air
  • Creates late room for himself with subtle adjustments before attacking the ball
  • Survived several muggings vs
  • Miami (Ohio) to haul in throws
Weaknesses
  • Needs more attention to detail as route salesman
  • Patterns can be too dull and gradual, allowing defenders to run them for him
  • Rolls into breaks, allowing corners to crowd him at the top
  • Lacks separation burst for easy uncover on intermediate routes
  • Allows greedy corners to drape themselves over him rather than fighting them off
  • Unable to outpace his coverage and sprint under the home run ball
  • Takes too long finding deep throws vs
  • bail coverage
  • Unsound technique as hands-catcher, leading to awkward drops.
