Round Five – 178th Overall (Compensatory)
Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M (6-foot-3, 194 pounds)
Some might call this pick a reach, others might call it a “wish pick” because the player will be gone long before this pick – depends on who you talk to.
Because of the varying opinions on Josh Reynolds, I think he would definitely be available during Miami’s second pick of the fifth round and I believe that he would offer great value at this point in the draft.
Reynolds is a 6-foot-3 speedster or sorts. Even though his 4.52 40 time at the combine – reportedly also ran 4.52 at the Texas A&M pro day – wouldn’t classify him as a burner, Reynolds plays fast and routinely got behind defenders during his time with the Aggies.
He was a triple jumper and high jumper in high school, and while Reynolds still needs some polishing as a route runner – he can find a way to make an impact in the Dolphins offense sooner rather than later with his ability to take the top off a defense as well as his being a dangerous red zone target.
If Reynolds is still on the board for Miami’s pick at No. 166, it wouldn’t be a bad thing to take him then and wait for Asiata.
