Overview

Reynolds may lack the flashy athleticism that characterizes many of this year's top tackle prospects, but his toughness and reliability on the right side could help him ultimately enjoy a more established pro career than some rated ahead of him. A three-year starter, with his action almost exclusively at right tackle, Reynolds has the frame and physicality to remain at the position at the next level. He lacks the speed to handle speed rushers, however, and isn't the consistent drive blocker his size might indicate. Had an arm span of 34 1/2 inches and a hand span of 9 3/4 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: High-cut with the thick-lower body build scouts prefer for the strong-side tackle position. Good initial burst off the snap as a run blocker. Provides an initial pop at the line and can generate movement. Good upper body strength to lock up defenders. Improved sustain of blocks as a senior. Alert in pass protection. Recognizes the blitz and reacts accordingly. Good bloodlines; father, Art, and uncle, Jack, both played professional football. Jack, better known by his nickname "Hacksaw," played 15 years in the NFL for the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers. Negatives: Over-achiever type. Has the size and toughness, but may lack the pure athleticism for the NFL. Too high in his stance and in his hand placement in pass protection and can be pushed into the pocket because he loses the leverage battle. Good effort to block on the move, but isn't particularly nimble, especially laterally.
