With the offseason underway, it is draft/free agency season. In this segment, “Scouting Report”, I will be posting scouting reports of who I believe the Cowboys should covet in the 2014 NFL Draft. Stay tuned daily, as I will be writing a few per day.

Background

During his time at Stanford, Reynolds was a key reason why the Cardinal’s defense was one of the best in the league. At Stanford, Reynolds was a two-year starter for David Shaw. Shaw will likely go in the second or third round in the NFL draft.

Measurements

- 6-2, 210 pounds

- 4.54 40-yard dash

Info

- All-PAC-12 first team

- CBSSports.com All-American first team

Positives

- Reads opposing quarterbacks well

- Excellent center fielder

- Displays great range

- Great instincts

- Good tackler

- Great football IQ

Negatives

- Not the best coverage guy

- Can play extremely dirty

- Had an ACL/MCL tear

- Inconsistent

The Fit

Ed Reynolds is a safety that hails from a really good school in Stanford. If the Dallas Cowboys want to select a player with a proven pedigree, Reynolds is the guy. Playing the PAC-12, Reynolds went up against many good players. Reynolds should be on the board when the Cowboys select their second round pick.

Scout Grade: 80/100
