Scouting Report: Walter Reyes

Scouting Report: Walter Reyes

Name: Walter Reyes School: Syracuse
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 200 40: 4.43

The Good: Patient runner with outstanding vision and instincts. Quick footed, immediately finds the open area in the defense and has a burst through the hole. Displays almost a sixth sense finding running lanes and follows blocks at the line of scrimmage or down the field. Runs low with balance, keeps his feet off the initial hit yet at the same time has a darting style which enables him to sidestep defenders and pick up yardage when seemingly nothing is available. Natural receiver out of the backfield.

The Bad: Though he times well in the 40, does not always play to that speed on the field. Not a heavy-duty back.

The Skinny: A productive collegiate runner, Reyes is setting himself up to be one of the better third-own backs available in next April's draft. His great field sense coupled with the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield makes him a justifiable selection in late part of day one in next April's draft.
