Kendall Reyes scouting report

Kendall Reyes DT Connecituct #99
Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 299

 
Strengths:
Prototypical height and decent overall size. Does a great job staying low and using good leverage. Surprisingly athletic; can get into the backfield and will even make some plays in pursuit. Impressive motor; never quits on a play. Stamina appears to be excellent for an interior lineman; chases ball carriers down the field more than your average defensive tackle. Definitely has the skills to play a three-technique in a 4-3 scheme or end in a 3-4. Team leader on and off the field; team captain in both junior and senior year.
Weaknesses:
Explosion off the snap is inconsistent; gets into the backfield with his bull rush, but rarely explodes into the backfield to really disrupt a play from the get-go. Explosion may not be enough to impress 4-3 teams looking for penetrating three-technique, but lacks size/strength to play nose tackle role. Suffered ankle injury in 2008.
Comments:
Reyes is the type of player who does everything well, but doesn’t really stand out in any one areas. There’s not a lot to criticize about his game, but that can be viewed as both a positive and a negative. On the positive side, he’s NFL ready and would be a relatively safe draft pick. On the down side, he may have maxed-out his potential. He’s a low risk option in the 2nd or 3rd round, but his upside is definitely low end for players who will come off the board in that range.
