Walter Reyes   RB   Syracuse
Strengths

Walter is a good, smart, tough running back. He shows good vision and lateral cutting ability along with a good burst. He looks to be good teammate. He will stick his nose in there to block a blitzing LB and he looks to have good enough hands to catch the ball out of the backfield.

 

Needs to Improve

Although Walter is a tough runner, he can be arm-tackled. He has also been hurt a lot, so durability is a big concern.

 

Talent Board Round  5

A possible change up back, but does not have the bulk and balance to be an every down back. He should be able to cause some problems for opponents at the next level, but his injuries have really affected him mentally at this point, which is his biggest problem. Itís hard to say at this point how successful Walter will be at the next level, but he does have talent. I guess for Walter, the ability to handle the injuries will be the deciding factor.
