Notes:

Married with a daughter. Father, Lance, was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1978 and currently serves as BYU’s associate head coach and running backs coach. Brothers, Lance and Dallas, also were BYU linemen, as is younger brother Houston. Matt, a member of the 2005 signing class, was a highly recruited Parade All-American and Utah’s Gatorade Player of the Year after winning a state championship as a senior. Redshirted in 2007 after returning from an LDS mission in Germany. Stepped into the lineup and started all 13 games at left tackle in ’08. Despite having surgery to repair a broken left hand (plate and three screws inserted) in August ’09, started all 13 games at left tackle that season and returned to start all 13 on the blind side in 2010. Started all 13 games for a fourth consecutive season at left tackle in ’11. Two-time team captain. Sprained his right ankle during Combine drills and did not run shuttles or perform jumps.

Positives:

Plays on his feet with good understanding of leverage. Maintains positioning and can create some movement. Good effort and intensity (see 2011 Armed Forces Bowl when he finished a block after his helmet flew off). Comes from a football family and has a clear passion for the game. Highly motivated to achieve. Smart and competitive. Tough. Very workmanlike in his approach. Experienced, four-year starter. 

Negatives:

Lacks ideal length and agility for the edges. Played in an offense featuring wide splits. Struggles to adjust on the move and reach linebackers. Not physical. Appeared very heavy in his movement through Combine drills — too many moving parts and wasted motion landed him on the ground several times. 

Summary:

Built more like a guard than a tackle, Reynolds overhauled his body as a senior, working hard in the offseason to shed 30 pounds and appeared more lean and agile. Needs to play on the right side or kick inside to survive in the pros.
