2014 NFL Draft profile - Rashaad Reynolds

2014 NFL Draft

Name:  Rashaad Reynolds

School:  Oregon State

Position:   Cornerback

Height:  5-10

Weight:   189

Age:  23

Positives:  Rashaad Reynolds has great instincts and anticipation.  His footwork is very good and he shows a very nice judgment between focusing on his receiver and on the progressions of the quarterback.  Reynolds does not shy away from contact, and is a very physical hitter.

His cover skills at a very high level, in that he has the quickness to stay close enough to the receiver and bats a lot of passes down.  He likes to jump routes, and has the ability to beat receivers to the spot for interceptions.  He has the speed to stay with receivers on deep patterns, and can close very quickly on the short routes as well.

Negatives:  Reynolds does not fit the mold of the bigger cornerbacks that are taking over the NFL.  Even though he isn’t afraid to mix it up with bigger receivers, bigger receivers are in abundance in the NFL, and he may have problems matching up with them consistently.

Impact on the Redskins:  The Redskins don’t have a lot of depth at cornerback.  DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson will start.  They signed free agent Tracy Porter, and re-signed E.J. Biggers, and even though reserves Chase Minnifield and Richard Crawford have potential, they’ve both struggled with injuries.  So Reynolds could come in and instantly add some quality depth.

Where the Redskins could pick him:  Reynolds is a very underrated prospect, but he could go off the board in the late third round are, but I think the Redskins will find him on the board at the top of the fourth round.

Teams interested:   New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers
