2016 NFL Draft results: Ravens pick WR Keenan Reynolds in round six

New, comments

The Ravens now have an overwhelming amount of talent at receiver with this selection.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Baltimore has added an offensive weapon to their team with the selection of Navy's Keenan Reynolds in the sixth round. Reynolds is an unusual prospect in the since that he can play three positions: QB, HB, and WR. The Ravens drafted him as a receiver, but with the depth chart quickly filling up at that position, Reynolds might have to find a different way to make the team.

STRENGTHS

As with most option quarterbacks, has heart for days as a runner and competitor. Elevated sense of purpose when play neared the goal line. Cashed in with 78 rushing touchdowns over the last three seasons. Can make himself slippery and rarely takes direct shots unless he seeks out the contact. Forced 23 missed tackles this season. Has plus vision with a great sense of when to cut it up and when to finish his runs. Runs with outstanding balance through contact. Elite intelligence and locker room leader.


WEAKNESSES

Doesn't have the frame or leg thickness of full­-time, NFL running back. More slippery than shifty as a runner. Lacking dynamic one-­cut ability to hit holes with burst. Thin lower half makes his running style slightly top ­heavy in space. Has to prove he can catch the football as a running back. Not strong enough to extend runs through force. Credited with just two broken tackles over his last 515 carries. Ball security is a concern. Had 32 fumbles with 18 lost during his time at Navy.
