If Utah's history of churning out front seven defenders - the Utes have sent five to the NFL since 2009 - isn't enough to intrigue scouts, Reilly's length and overall athleticism certainly could be. Unfortunately, Reilly's 2012 tape failed to jump out, and underwhelming performances early in the 2013 season won't help, either. (10/1/13)
Strengths: Broad shoulders and a tapered, athletic build that certainly looks the part of a high round prospect. Reilly's athleticism is intriguing. He has good lateral agility and balance to elude blockers and can make impressive plays in pursuit.
Weaknesses: Average quickness off the snap, and was not explosive enough to consistently beat BYU junior left tackle Michael Yeck in an anticipated matchup. Reilly is largely a finesse defender who relies on his athleticism to slip free, rather than forcefully defeating his man.
