Former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds will forever be known as the most prolific scorer in NCAA history. The only thing is that he won’t be playing quarterback at the next level.
He accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game, but did not play on Saturday while dealing with some back tightness. He was listed as a running back for the game, but one NFL scout believes Reynolds will be making another position switch before the 2016 NFL Draft in April.
“I would like to see him play in the slot rather than taking these dumb zone-read snaps,” the scout told NFL.com. “I don’t think he’s a running back, but he might be a slot receiver. I just need to see him get some legitimate receiver snaps.”
During his career with the Midshipmen, Reynolds rushed for 4,559 yards and 88 touchdowns, an NCAA record. He also threw for over 4,000 yards and 31 touchdowns.
He has proven that he is a versatile athlete, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go the way of Denard Robinson, Julian Edelman, and Antwaan Randle-El in the league.
