StoneColeKiller58: ...But how did he do against the Ducks?
BLG: Ed's a very smart guy. This is cool.
YankeesEaglesWhat: I always approve of picking a DB from Stanford in the 5th round.
JohnnyMoo: I never thought he would fall this far. I’m pretty ecstatic with this pick. At worst I think he’s a backup safety, but I believe he has the potential to be something special. Didn’t even know he was on the board absolute steal in my opinion.
EliSwallows: Pac 12 All-Star Team
TheBarbarian331: He might not be anything more than a depth guy, but he has good size and is smart so you can’t count him out. Probably the best safety available at this point in the draft and he could’ve gone in the 4th so nice value.
alcatraz0109: Honestly not a fan of Reynolds. But he’s a big guy who tackles well and seems pretty agile so STs is at least a possibility.
kyleklem92: chip is really showing his affinity towards big players
Beak 'n Talon: I love this pick. He was one of the top safeties in the country in 2012 and appeared in the 1st round in preseason mocks. He wasn’t that bad last year, just didn’t have 6 ints like the year before but still led Stanford in tackles. He was the QB of a great defense and is a big, instinctive safety with range. I like him a lot better than Wolff in the same round last year
bebin: Next Dawkins

Not a great day for Earl Wolff with two safeties taken. #Eagles— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) May 10, 2014
I can't say Ed Reynolds is a player that I found to be all that compelling, but he is a solid S that hits & tackles well. Another smart guy— Tommy Lawlor (@lawlornfl) May 10, 2014
Reynolds is a good friend of ex Stanford teammate Zach Ertz.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) May 10, 2014
Reynolds used to live in Lawrenceville, NJ, when his dad worked for the NFL. Had a chance to see Eagles facility a couple of times as a kid.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) May 10, 2014
Reynolds can only do 3-day rookie camp, won't graduate until second week of June.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) May 10, 2014
Giants took Nat Berhe over Ed Reynolds, who went a few picks later to the Eagles. Will be interesting to see how those two work out.— Kunal Shah (@KSIXI) May 10, 2014
#Eagles take Ed Reynolds. Stanford safety has good size at 6-1 207. He's a very smart football player and a good tackler. Good ballskills.— Matthew Chastain (@EaglesScoutBlog) May 10, 2014
Ed Reynolds to Eagles. Man, Chip likes those Stanford guys— Rule of Tree (@RuleofTree) May 10, 2014
