Scouting Report: Joffrey Reynolds

Courtesy of our friends at TFY Draft Preview, a scouting report on the new Browns running back, taken from the time of the 2003 draft...

NameJoffrey Reynolds  SchoolHouston  Year:   5Sr

Ht:  5-9  Wt:  215  40:  4.65  Pos:  RB

Bio: First team All-Conference selection as a senior after starting twelve games and leading the team on the ground carrying the ball 316 times for 1,545 yards and 11 scores.  Also caught 19 passes for 135 yards with 2 additional touchdowns.  Out gained his nearest teammate by more than 1,400 yards nearly tripled the amount of rushing touchdowns from anyone on the UH roster.  Started every game as a junior again leading the team carrying the ball with 181/884/7, also catching 37/349/1.

Positives: Quick footed ball carrier who works his runs.  Built low to the ground, gets lost behind lineman and follows blocks.  Tough on the inside, elusive and avoids tackles.  Keeps the play in bounds and always working to pick up positive yardage.  Solid pass catching skills out of the backfield.

Negatives:  Not fast enough to get outside around the corner, runs a bit tall and gets smashed by opponents.

Analysis:  Productive ball carrier for a terrible program the past two seasons and was tough to stop even though opponents realized he'd be taking a hand-off 50% of the time.  Versatility is key and could help him find a spot as a backup at the next level.
