Scouting Report
A two-time all-Pac-12 safety, Reynolds has the imposing size and track record of production NFL teams are looking for. He also has a father, also named Ed, who played for 10 years in the league before retiring with the Giants in 1992 - and that left the door open for the younger Reynolds to serve as a ball boy for Tom Coughlin's club while in high school. He became close with Eli Manning along with Coughlin's children during that time, so there's a pretty solid connection there should the Giants go looking for a safety in the middle rounds. But if not New York, there could be quite a few others interested in Reynolds. He intercepted six passes as a sophomore in 2012 and returned three of those for touchdowns. He has a good wrap-up technique and is instinctive, reading the quarterback's eyes if he has a chance. Despite the prototype size for a safety, there are concerns. Reynolds has average speed and doesn't change directions particularly well. He sometimes struggles taking the right angle to the ball and has been susceptible to getting juked by quicker receivers and running backs. Reynolds also has limited experience in man coverage. He is a fit in a cover-2 system, but figures to start out on special teams.
