LA Rams take A&M WR Josh Reynolds in 4th round of NFL draft

Josh Reynolds just needed a chance.

Given that chance, he proved be belongs among the most productive receivers in Texas A&M history.

Now he'll enter the NFL with a familiar perspective, determined to prove himself again after being overlooked on the first two evenings of the 2017 draft. Though he waited longer than many expected, Reynolds was selected Saturday by the Los Angeles Rams with the 10th pick in the 4th round of the NFL draft (117th overall).

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Reynolds caught 164 passes for 2,788 yards and 30 touchdowns in his three-year A&M career. He left College Station with the third-highest career receiving total, fourth-highest total in career receiving yards and second-highest total in receiving touchdowns.

Last season, Reynolds had 61 receptions for 1,039 yards and 12 touchdowns. He had a touchdown catch in every game but two (vs. Prairie View and South Carolina).

But Reynolds almost didn’t get a chance to play major college football. He was lightly recruited out of San Antonio Jay High School and ended up at Tyler Junior College.

Texas A&M track coach Pat Henry had scouted Reynolds as a triple jumper and recommended that A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin take a look at Reynolds. He did and quickly offered Reynolds a scholarship.

That decision quickly paid dividends. Reynolds caught 52 passes for 842 yards and set a single-season school record with 13 touchdown catches.

The Rams obviously hope his pro career will mirror his time as an Aggie, proving Reynolds is better than scouts (again) realize.

Probably the most overlooked college player ever for how consistently he's played, his clutch catches, and his stats. Probably one of the best receivers in the game the last 2 years and he's gotten 0 recognition for it.

Can't wait to see The Ghost tear up defenses. Such a huge value pick for LA that late in the draft.
