The 22- year-old through three collegiate seasons racked up 164 catches for 2,788 receiving yards with 30 touchdowns. In the 2016 campaign, he recorded 61 receptions for 1,039 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns that earned him a Second-Team All-SEC selection.

Reynolds possesses the ability to stretch the field as a vertical threat in the passing game while utilizing his size and length standing at 6-foot-2, which makes him the tallest receiver on the Rams’ roster heading into training camp.
“It’s helped me a lot,” Reynolds said of his height. “I feel like I’m an (inaudible) receiver, I’m versatile, my height was just a bonus, and really having long arms, just being long.”
Reynold’s has drawn some comparison to Detroit Lions wideout Marvin Jones because of his ability to make play down the field along with being a viable option in the red zone.
“Definitely intensity,” Reynold said. “I’m a playmaker and can play pretty much anywhere they need. I’m a winner and I’d love to help this team win.”
All in all, the Rams have clearly put forth a strong effort in the 2017 NFL Draft to provide quarterback Jared Goff more weapons in the passing game heading into next season.
