year round NFL draft coverage... for the real fan

Kendall Reyes scouting report

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

Wt: 299

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.
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.
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.
