What he brings: Reynolds is a very athletic corner who has impressed scouts with his anticipation instincts and leadership ability.

Despite these shortcomings, most scouts view Reynolds as a durable, low-risk prospect.

Where the Patriots could get him: Rounds 3-4

Notes: Reynolds finished his final year with Oregon State with 61 tackles and a career-high six interceptions. His six picks tied him for the conference lead and was tied for seventh in the nation. … Reynolds was named to the Jim Thorpe Award Watch list in 2013.
