The 2012 Senior Bowl won't be played until Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. in Mobile, Alabama (NFL Network), but Connecticut Huskies defensive lineman Kendall Reyes has already made his week in front of NFL personnel a success.
CBS Sports reports that Reyes has taken "full advantage" to prove himself in front of the hordes of NFL talent evaluators who flock to observe the Senior Bowl practices.
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.
Reyes is rated the No. 80 prospect in Mocking The Draft's Top 100 NFL Draft Prospects, but his stock has climbed this week. The Senior Bowl festivities conclude Saturday afternoon, when the North team meets the South team at Ladd Peebles Stadium.
