04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Chargers' picks: Round 2/49 - Kendall Reyes, DE, 6-4, 295, Connecticut...Reyes, in the Chargers' 3-4, is headed toward defensive end. With the team unsure about Luis Castillo's return from a leg injury and the inexperience of Vaughn Martin, Reyes could hit the field sooner than later. - The Sports Xchange

04/30/2012 - Smith said the team wanted to strike with defensive players early in the draft and it did just that. On the heels of getting Ingram, the team scored defensive tackle Kendall Reyes from Connecticut and Taylor from LSU. "We had a defensive game plan and an emphasis toward that side of the ball in this draft," Smith said. "That continued on the second day with a pair of players we believe can really help us." - The Sports Xchange

04/27/2012 - DT Kendall Reyes, Connecticut -- Characterized as a high-effort player but limited, his ascent up boards began with an impressive Senior Bowl, but his 31.5 career tackles for loss prove he can be a playmaker as a five-technique defensive end in the Chargers' 3-4.

04/26/2012 - ROB RANG'S TOP 50 PLAYERS OF THE 2012 NFL DRAFT: 38. Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut: Reyes has been a standout throughout his career with the Huskies but really boosted his stock with an impressive performance at the Senior Bowl. Demonstrating the quickness and power there to translate well as a defensive tackle in the 4-3 or as a defensive end in the 3-4 alignment, Reyes' versatility and intangibles (two-time team captain) stand out at a position considered one of the 2012 draft's most talented. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

03/29/2012 - Kendall Reyes, the man whom two dozen NFL scouts and personnel came to see on Wednesday, spent most of the afternoon serving as motivational inspiration for teammates also being tested at UConn's Pro Day. Reyes, a 6-4, 299-pound defensive tackle, has been mentioned as a possible late first-round pick in next month's NFL Draft. But since he was pleased with his performance at February's NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Reyes decided not to partake in battery of tests ranging from bench press to the 40-yard dash. Instead he stood behind each of his teammates to spot them for the bench press, spotting each as they attempted to lift 225 pounds for as many repetitions as possible or shouting encouragement during the vertical leap and shuttle runs. When it came time for Reyes to run various defensive drills, darting between pylons and swatting giant tackling dummies, the scouts gathered to pay close attention. It was a nerve-racking experience for some. Defensive back Harris Agbor was retested several times in the vertical leap because he kept shuffling his feet prior to liftoff, while fellow defensive back Gary Wilburn continually failed to touch the end lines with his fingers during the shuttle run. But Reyes said he hasn't been bothered by the scrutiny. "I'm doing everything I can," Reyes said. "I'm going 100 percent, and that's all I can do. If it works out, it works out. I just want to hear my name called." - Chip Malafronte, New Haven Register

03/13/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP DOWN DEFENSIVE LINEMEN: Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut, 6-4, 299, 1-2...Reyes played both end and tackle in college and didn't impress scouts as a pass-rush threat until he outplayed some of the best offensive linemen in the country at the Senior Bowl. He has good short-area quickness and will win most fights in a phone booth. This ability was demonstrated at the combine, where he hoisted 225 pounds 36 times and surprised scouts with an unofficial 40 time of 4.79. Teams still appreciate his consistency against the run more than his threat as a pass rusher, however. Reyes arrived at Connecticut as a 245-pound, three-sport prep star (including basketball and track) and developed into a big body without losing his quickness and agility. He started 42 games at UConn and finished with 31 ?? tackles for a loss, 10th in school history. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

02/23/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT PRE-COMBINE TOP 64: 41. Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut, 6-4, 300, 2...Reyes played both end and tackle in college and didn't impress scouts as a pass rush threat until he outplayed some of the best offensive linemen in the country at the Senior Bowl. Teams still appreciate his consistency against the run more than his threat as a pass rusher, however. He has good short-area quickness and will win most fights in a phone booth. Reyes arrived at Connecticut as a 245-pound, three-sport prep star (including basketball and track) and developed into a big body without losing his quickness and agility. He started 42 games at UConn and finished with 31.5 tackles for a loss, 10th in school history. - Frank Cooney - The Sports Xchange, NFL Draft Scout

01/24/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL TUESDAY: With Penn State's Devon Still - NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated senior defensive tackle - out of the Senior Bowl due to a sprained toe scouts were curious to see which of the remaining interior defensive linemen would be able to step up their play. Based on Tuesday's North practice, Connecticut's Kendall Reyes and Michigan's Mike Martin are taking full advantage of the opportunity. Physically speaking, the two couldn't be much different. Reyes, who measured in just a shade under 6-4 and 300 pounds lined up at the three-technnique and even was split out as a five-technique defensive end. His burst off the snap and quick hands made him a tough draw for even the most athletic and experienced of the North offensive linemen. Wisconsin's Kevin Zeitler, arguably the nation's top pure guard among seniors, struggled handling Reyes one on one during drills and during the scrimmages throughout practice, as well. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

12/19/2011 - 2011 ALL-BIG EAST CONFERENCE FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DL Kendall Reyes, Connecticut, Sr., has been selected All-BIG EAST Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as chosen by the league's eight head coaches. Reyes started 42 games during his UConn career and was third on the UConn team with 13.5 tackles for loss while making 46 total tackles. For his career, he had 31.5 tackles for a loss - tenth in school history. - Connecticut football

10/26/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Connecticut at Pittsburgh, Oct. 26 A rare Wednesday night game has the Huskies in Pittsburgh for their next-to-last road trip of the season. It'll be a chance for UConn to erase some of the bad memories of the subpar nonconference results, and create a positive impression before a national audience. KEYS TO THE GAME: The defense is going to have to be disruptive for the Huskies to win, but the pressure will also be on the offense to score some points. UConn is settling for field goals far too often, and the better teams in the Big East are going to make it pay for those missed opportunities in the red zone. - The Sports Xchange

10/05/2011 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: This will be a good test of how quickly the defense learns from its mistakes. West Virginia is somewhat similar to Western Michigan in its use of the spread offense, but the Mountaineers have a better quarterback and a more potent ground attack. Geno Smith has to be licking his chops at the thought of facing the Blidi Wreh-Wilson-less secondary. PLAYERS TO WATCH: DT Kendall Reyes had two sacks against Western Michigan. That doubled his season total, as he had two through the season's first four games. - The Sports Xchange

09/03/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: DT Kendall Reyes - The senior is the leader of an experienced UConn defense that will have to carry more than its share of the load for the Huskies to win, especially early in the season. Entering his fourth season as the starter, he'll be an All-America candidate if he can stay healthy and continue to make plays. - The Sports Xchange

08/11/2011 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: It's a lot of changes for the UConn players on both sides of the ball. The offense is young at the skill positions, and learning the new coaching staff's preferences. The defense is in better shape, at least on the lines and in the secondary, but Don Brown's defense is deceptively complex to learn. How quickly everyone adjusts to their new roles and gets comfortable in the new system and with the current staff will determine whether the Huskies will contend for the Big East title, or scramble to be bowl-eligible. - The Sports Xchange
