George Frey

Rashaad Reynolds

Cornerback

Height: 5' 10", Weight: 189 lbs

Oregon State

Strengths: Rashaad Reynolds has made great stride in his play from 2012 to the 2013 season. He is aggressive and intense. His is willing to fight for the ball. His tackling technique is good and he like to hit. He is quick, fluid, and can play in a variety of schemes. Reynolds also has a good vertical leap and hand-eye coordination. He was voted team captain. His 2013 season ended with 61 tackles, four passes defended, and six interceptions.

Weaknesses: The biggest detriment Reynolds has is his size. He is short for the cornerback position. He can be beaten on pass routes and gets grabby in that situation. At times, he opens his hips too early and shuffles instead of a true backpedal.

Bottom Line: Rashaad Reynolds can play in the NFL, but he will have to prove it.

Projected Round: 3-4

Team He Fits Best On: Cleveland, Detroit, New Orleans
