Washington Redskins Draft Profile: Ed Reynolds, FS

Thearon W. Henderson

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2014 draft

Ed Reynolds

Free Safety

Height: 6' 2", Weight: 206

Stanford

Strengths: As a Red Shirt Junior at Stanford, Reynolds amassed 87 tackles and one interception during the 2013 season. He has the right build and pedigree for the NFL (his father, Ed, played from 1983 to 1992). He possesses good knowledge and vision and is a hard hitter.

Weaknesses: Reynolds tore his ACL and missed the entire 2011 season. Although that happened almost three years ago, his aggressive playing style means it could be an issue in the future. It also means that he can be burned at the line of scrimmage by a good receiver. His tendency to hit hard can backfire on him when he tries to hit for the highlight reels.

Bottom Line: With only one really productive season with the Cardinal, Reynolds is talented, but is a bit of a gamble. With the right guidance, he could develop into an asset in the secondary.

Projected round: 2

Team He Fits Best On: Reynolds would fit well with the Redskins. He should also be available when the Skins pick comes up in the second round. He could also be a good fit for the Bengals, Eagles, or Rams.
