SD Chargers 2nd Round PIck: Kendall Reyes, DT, UCONN (#49 overall)
By James Fedewa
Kendall Reyes: Nice explosion & burst. Quick for big man with great strength. Distruptive penetrating DT with interior pass rushing ability. He will demand a lot of double team. Reyes will play DE in San Diego’s 3-4 base defense (but can possibly add more weight/bulk to play NT if necessary). He’s currently listed at 300 lbs., but usually plays HIGHER than that. Plus, he could play pass rushing DE or DT in the Nickel & Dime Sub Packages, so he can play 3 different positions immediately (and is very versatile).
He will join a very deep San Diego Chargers defensive line rotation with Luigit (last years first round pick), Castillo (2005 first round pick), Garay, V.Martin and C.Thomas. He has a very bright future in the NFL and is a great defensive prospect in San Diego.
