Beware of college players who come up small against top teams.
That’s exactly how Reynolds’ scouting report read prior to being drafted out of Florida State.
The undersized pass rusher lacked the size to beat gargantuan tackles with the bull rush, but he also didn’t possess the extraordinary speed it takes to go around blockers.
The all-time bust registered a whopping three sacks and 16 tackles in his 18 games in Green and Gold. Ron Wolf traded Matt Hasselbeck and the 17th pick in the first round for the right to draft Reynolds.
The Seahawks used that 17th pick on Steve Hutchinson who was a five-time first team All Pro. Ron Wolf partially saved face on this pick with the emergence of his 2000 fifth-round pick Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, who soon took over as his featured pass rusher.
