Player Overview

No quarterback in FBS history has more career rushing yards than Navy's Keenan Reynolds, who tallied 4,559 over the last pour seasons. He also set the Division-I record for total touchdowns (88) and finished fifth in the 2015 Heisman Trophy voting.

But with his size (5-10, 200) and skill set, Reynold's best fit in the NFL is at running back, a position he has never played. However, with his experience as a ballcarrier in Navy's option offense, the transition should go smoothly. And if practices at the Shrine Game are any indication, Reynolds looks like a natural at the new position.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: The move from quarterback should come naturally to him because Reynolds' running ability is what made him so dynamic in Navy's option offense, using his vision and shifty moves to create on his own.

Shows the lower body athleticism to make quick cuts and fluidly redirect his momentum, stringing together his moves to pick through the defense. He reads the field well and has the speed to beat the linebacker to the edge.

Despite limited experience, appeared natural looking the ball into his hands before bursting downfield at Shrine Game practices. Brings versatility for a play-caller with his ability to line up in the backfield and take direct snaps, and has spent time practicing as a punt returner.

WEAKNESSES: Making the transition from quarterback to running back. Scouts will be paying attention to Reynolds during workouts when he doesn't have the ball to see how he blocks, runs routes and acclimates himself to the new position.

With his limited build, Reynolds doesn't have the body power to run through contact, which shows as an inside runner. And with 32 career fumbles at Navy, he also needs to improve his ball security. Unproven as a pass-catcher out of the backfield with only one career catch in college.
