Dominick Reyes Safety Stony Brook

Postby The Hogster » Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:23 pm

This guy was profiled on Hogs Haven as a potential safety the Redskins could get in the later rounds of the NFL Draft. They describe him--and I emphasize they describe him as a "poor man's Sean Taylor."

I don't know about all of that. But, this kid can cover and lays the wood. Check out his Senior Year cut up.

He has the kind of instincts that you just can't coach... his timing on those big hits does remind you of ST...

And... there were a LOT of highlights...

Never heard of this kid but I'm liking what I see!

Just goes to show that there's talent in this draft even with players we haven't heard much hype on. Solid!

He hits with that violence like ST did. The way guys go flying off their cleats upon impact is something you can't teach as CT said.

His hits look similar to ST. Maybe not as explosive but he reminds me a lot of ST. I'd love to see this guy in our backfield laying people out.

6'4" 215lbs is above average was well. That height could work out great for us.

Stony brook and Georgia...I think that's why we picked Rambo. Guy just hasn't proved it on a big stage...
I know this guy named Jimmy, he has a pet....POSTERNUTBAG! Thats his cats name, POSTERNUTBAG!!!

Why would it piss you off? Rambo was a 1st team All American at an SEC school. Reyes is a stud from Stony Brook who went undrafted. We can still bring him in for a Gatorade, $500 and a bag of Funyons.

I will be dissappointed if we don't bring him in as an UDFA though.

Agreed. I'm not sure what they're waiting for but it seems no one knows much about this guy. He wasn't even on the ranking board on the CBSNFL prospects list. Completely under the radar.

Shoot if nothing else, he could be Zo's replacement on special teams (if he couldn't win the starting safety roll). We'd be getting so many knock out fumbles forced by this guy :)

Just checking in to see if there has been any updated on Dominick Reyes.

Been searching around the web but haven't seen any signings for him; just want to be sure I'm not overlooking something.

one thing's for sure - our guys know all there is to know about Reyes .. if he's worth a look, he'll get a shot to make the team ...
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

RG3 will benefit from having a full off season to prepare and a better 'fit' at both HC and OC

Agree, but can't help but wonder if he somehow did escape their attention. Doubt at this point though; there's been a lot of fan talk about him all over Twitter, etc.

Just hard to get my mind around it. Couldn't find any character issues with him, size is amazing, speed is great, has great instincts. If he's lacking anything I'd say he has all the raw materials to be conditioned well.

Sometime does seem off in that he hasn't been signed by anyone. Just can't pull up a reason.

BTW, he wasn't even on the draft prospects chart I saw on CBSsports and a couple others.

Yes, he's eligible. Just hasn't gotten a call yet. He says he will announce when he gets signed via Twitter @DomReyes
