Reynolds was selected with the 20th pick in the fifth round, and was the Falcons' second fifth-rounder of the 2009 draft. Atlanta's Kory Biermann, the 20th pick in the fifth round in 2008, received a signing bonus of $174,750. The 6-8, 309-pound tackle is the nephew of veteran linebacker Jack "Hacksaw" Reynolds, who played 15 seasons in the NFL. The only offensive player selected by the Falcons in the 2009 draft, Reynolds will start his NFL career behind Tyson Clabo in the depth chart. He graded out as North Carolina's top offensive lineman in 2008.
Reynolds is the third Atlanta draft pick to agree to terms with the team -- he joins Furman cornerback William Middleton, the team's other fifth-rounder, and seventh-round defensive tackle Vance Walker from Georgia Tech in the fold.
