It's that time of the year again! I will be highlighting some of the players I would like the Patriots to pick in this year's draft. We have already highlighted some players and reported some private work outs, so be sure to follow us for updates! On the right hand side of this page, the "2016 NFL Draft" category will keep track of all potential Patriots players.
To be honest, I'm not even sure if Keenan Reynolds will make it in the NFL. At Navy, he was a dominant quarterback, who had a great arm and even better legs. Reynolds holds a plethora of NCAA records, including most rushing touchdowns, most total touchdowns, and most career rushing yards by a quarterback.
However, at 5-foot-11, 205 pounds, Reynolds simply isn't big enough to play in the NFL at the quarterback position. After being snubbed at the NFL Combine, Reynolds made the decision to start the transition to the running back position. As a dual-threat quarterback in college, the transition for Reynolds to another position was thought to be easier. Unfortunately, scouts have reported that Reynolds does not look like a NFL-ready running back.
While some scouts have suggested that Reynolds transitions even further to wide receiver, it appears that he is a huge project for anyone that decides to draft or sign him as an undrafted free agent.
However, remember we are talking about Bill Belichick.
From his close ties to Navy to his lust for project pieces, don't be surprised if Belichick drafts Reynolds with one of his 14 billion 7th round picks. With the leadership that he gained at Navy and his pure athleticism, he may be worth a late-round pick or a camp invite.
