Why Undrafted?: Rashaad Reynolds

Why Undrafted?: Rashaad Reynolds, CB, Oregon State
By Charlie Campbell, @draftcampbell

Reynolds was one of the Pac-12’s more productive cornerbacks over the past few years. The senior was a Second-Team All-Pac-12 selection in 2013 as he totaled 61 tackles with six interceptions, four passes broken up and two forced fumbles in 2013. The previous season, Reynolds had 13 passes broken up and three picks.

After the 2013 season, Reynolds put together an impressive week of practice at the East-West Shrine. However, he didn�t stand out in his coverage ability and his stature illustrated that he is just a nickel-corner option in the NFL. Still, with Reynolds showing some ball skills and coverage ability in college, many thought that he would be a mid-round pick.

In speaking to a few teams, one felt that Reynolds was worthy of a late-round pick, but that organization decided to go with other players who were had rated higher on that team’s board. Another team had Reynolds targeted as an undrafted free agent.

Reynolds signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars after falling to the ranks of the undrafted. That was a good choice from a roster perspective. The Jaguars have been weak at cornerback for years and are open to competition from late-round or undrafted free agents. Jacksonville doesn�t have established starters, much less talented depth. Reynolds has a legitimate shot to make the roster or practice squad and potentially develop into a contributor as a nickel corner. The Jaguars were perhaps the best team that he could have signed with.
