Nobody scored more touchdowns than Reynolds in College Football. In four seasons as Navy’s quarterback he scored 88 touchdowns on the ground and threw for 31 touchdown passes. There may have never been a more accomplished sixth round pick in the history of the NFL.
Yet Reynolds is a project. The Ravens envision him as a slot receiver. He is their version of Jullian Edelman. Reynolds was a quarterback in a triple option offense. He may be a record-breaking playmaker but he has a tough adjustment ahead of him.
His biggest challenge is going to be learning how to be a receiver. I doubt he’ll struggle to master the offense; Reynolds is as bright as they come. It’s running routes and catching the football consistently that he has to get familiar with. Not only does he have a lot to learn, he has to learn against NFL talent.
The good news is that Reynolds is a dynamic athlete. He is quick and elusive with the football in his hands. He is a natural ball carrier. He has a special ability to make plays. The challenge with Reynolds, will never be a lack of talent.
Reynolds number was retired by Navy. He was not only one of the best players in Midshipmen history, but in College Football’s as well. Reynolds is a special young man. He is intelligent, has an eager and warm personality and is very disciplined. There is no doubt that he will work himself silly for the Ravens.
