Draft Analysis:

There's little doubt Marc Trestman will find a way to utilize Reynolds' running ability. The record-setter is best categorized as an offensive weapon and should be able to contribute on run plays, pass plays, and on special teams. Baltimore also values character more than most teams and Reynolds is as good as it gets in that category. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

As with most option quarterbacks, has heart for days as a runner and competitor. Elevated sense of purpose when play neared the goal line. Cashed in with 78 rushing touchdowns over the last three seasons. Can make himself slippery and rarely takes direct shots unless he seeks out the contact. Forced 23 missed tackles this season. Has plus vision with a great sense of when to cut it up and when to finish his runs. Runs with outstanding balance through contact. Elite intelligence and locker room leader.

Weaknesses

Doesn't have the frame or leg thickness of full­-time, NFL running back. More slippery than shifty as a runner. Lacking dynamic one-­cut ability to hit holes with burst. Thin lower half makes his running style slightly top ­heavy in space. Has to prove he can catch the football as a running back. Not strong enough to extend runs through force. Credited with just two broken tackles over his last 515 carries. Ball security is a concern. Had 32 fumbles with 18 lost during his time at Navy.

Bottom Line

Reynolds is more than tough enough for the NFL game, but his ball security issues are a major concern as he tries to step into the role of an NFL running back. Reynolds is tough but not physical to the point of breaking tackles so he must prove he can be creative and elusive and he has to show good hands to become a pass catching option as well. Adding to a return game could help his cause.
