Latest News
04/02/2012 - Former BYU offensive lineman Matt Reynolds has done all he can do. After participating in Pro Day Thursday on campus, he is looking forward to the National Football League Draft on April 26-28. But when it comes to improving his draft stock until then, it's pretty much out of his hands. "Right now, it's just a waiting game," said Reynolds, who started all 52 games in his recently completed Cougar career. "After Pro Day, you really have to wait until the draft and wait for your name to get called." Reynolds is expected to be drafted, but he has no idea which round. "I've heard all across the board. It's hard to know right now," he said. "So many things can change between now and the draft. So many things can change on draft day as well. Anybody's guess is as good as mine right now." Reynolds was one of 10 former BYU players who participated in Pro Day, along with offensive lineman Terence Brown, running back JJ Di Luigi, defensive back Corby Eason, defensive lineman Hebron "Loni" Fangupo, linebacker Jameson Frazier, wide receiver McKay Jacobson, linebacker Jordan Pendleton, defensive lineman Matt Putnam, and defensive back Travis Uale. - Scott G Winterton, The Deseret News
