    Kendall Reyes- 2nd round pick in the 2012 draft. Reyes stands at 6 ft 4, 299 pounds, his arm length is 33 1/4, and his hand size is 9 1/2. Reyes ran a 4.95 40, benched 225 36 times, has a vertical of 34.5,113.0 broad jump. 7.43 3 cone. a 20 yard shuffle of 4.53, during his 4 years at uconn reyes posted 96 tackles, 7 sacks, 18 tfl's,

    Corey Liuget- 1st round pick in the 2011 draft. Liuget stands at 6 ft 2, 300 pounds, 33 1/4, hands 9 1/2. benched pressed 225 27 times. a vertical jump of 27 inches, broad jump of 102. 3 cone is 7.48, 20 yard shuffle 4.68. during Liugets 3 years at illinois he posted 125 tackles, 25.5 tfl's, and 8.5 sacks.

    both players are similar builds but why was liuget a 1st round pick. The only difference i see is that liuget had 29 more tackles,1.5 more sacks, 7.5 more tfl's. But which such similarities. why was one pick 18, and one pick 49?

    Doing the math:

    Luiget posted those numbers @ 3 college seasons.
    Reyes @ 4 college seasons.

    Luiget averaging 42 tackles a season would give
    him an estimated total of 167 tackles @ 4 seasons.
    That would mean he would have had an estimated
    71 more tackles than Reyes.

    Luiget estimate at 11.5 sacks=4.5 more than Reyes.
    Luiget estimate Tackles for Loss= 34. That would be 16 more than Reyes.

    Of course, whose to say what Luiget would have done his
    Senior year. He might have gone off, or he might have regressed.

    Liuget was a 1st round pick due to what was around him, Reyes was 49th due to what was around him Reyes was actually considered a late first rounder, which on paper makes that a steal.

    One difference between why one went 31 players higher than the other was Liuget was listed as the best pure 4-3 DT while Reyes is slated to be a great to solid 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT.

    Reyes I feel is the better pick for us, not a shot at Corey or anything both will solidify that D-line

    Reyes has an amazing KEI. 36 bench reps + 34.5 vert jump + 9.33 foot broad jump = a KEI of almost 80. That's almost what Watt had last season.

    Back to the topic at hand, how can you compare their stats and seriously ask this question? Liuget had wildly superior numbers relative to his time spent playing. Further, Liuget's class had a different composition. This class had insane depth at the top of the 4-3 DT, 3-4 DE pool.

    i was wondering because of the same build, and similar collegiate production, shouldnt one be over rated then?

    The didn't have similar collegiate production. Reyes was drafted on potential based on his size and decent production. Liuget was drafted based on his outstanding (even if only over 3 years) production, in spite of his good but not jaw dropping combine numbers.

    if you look at it they did, liuget played 1 less season, but whose to say he would have had better numbers? he could have gotten injured, or been replaced.

    He could have left football and started a career as a pro ice skater, too. That doesn't mean that you can compare a 3 year and a 4 year career and say the numbers are the same.

    I think who else is in the draft has a huge impact on when a player is taken. If a class is RB strong, teams can sit back and wait for an RB....
