Eagles Tab Stanford For 5th round Pick; Select Safety Ed Reynolds


Pretty soon the entire Eagles roster will be made up of players from the SEC and Pac-12. Their latest addition to the nest? Safety Ed Reynolds from Stanford.

Reynolds was a prolific player on a very strong Stanford defense and, much like a few other of the Eagles draft picks, come from a bloodline with an NFL background. Reynolds was All Pac-12 in both 2012 and 2013 and set a school record for interceptions returned for touchdowns in 2013 with three. He is listed at 6’1″, 207 pounds and ran a 4.57 40-yard dash at the combine.

Reynolds joins Jaylen Watkins as another secondary member of the 2014 Draft class with the ability to play the safety position. Some have brought up the organization’s confidence level in Earl Wolff with their recent run on defensive backs. Though Reynolds might lack top-end athleticism and explosiveness that some of the safeties earlier in the draft possessed, Reynolds is a productive player with a strong knowledge of the game and a knack for the ball.

The Eagles, as it stands, have one remaining pick in the 2014 Draft. When they make their 7th round pick, we’ll have the reaction and more Saturday draft coverage on Section215.com.
