2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut

Kendall Reyes of the UConn Huskies is a big defensive line prospect who could either play tackle in a 4-3 or an end in a 3-4 defense. He really does a great job holding his ground, anchoring the line and taking on blockers. With some additional bulk in his lower half, he could really power his way into becoming a more disruptive player.

Reyes does very well against the run. His technique and bulk are lacking, but he does a great job of holding the point of attack. He would be an ideal nose tackle for a 4-3 defense given his tenacity and instincts against the run. Given his height, he'll need to stay lower, use his pads to gain leverage and get underneath blockers. He is quick enough inside to fill running lanes and disrupt the flow of an offense in the trenches.

He lacks violent hand aggression and needs to get his body initiated with offensive lineman to get the early advantage. As a pass-rusher, he relies too much on power rushing and will need to develop some moves to get around linemen and not just through them. Reyes is quick enough to do more as a pass-rusher, he just lacks the experience to develop this aspect of his game.
