Ed Reynolds FS Stanford 162nd overall

I mentioned Chip Kelly likes Oregon players. He also has a soft spot for Pac-12 players too. Chip personally saw Reynolds, when Chip coached against him. Reynolds had a great 2012 year, tallying 6 interceptions. He was projected to be a 2nd round pick if would’ve came out that year. This year didn’t go as planned. Reynolds finished with only 1 interception and fell to the Eagles. Safety is a huge need, so adding Reynolds who has potential to become a starter is a good thing. He will bring competition to a position that has seen better days for the Eagles. The team is finally addressing this position and is hopping Reynolds can come in and push other players for reps.

Grade: B
