Positive: Nice sized tight end who is best as a blocker. Quickly gets off the line, stays square, and is strong at the point of attack. Works to bend his knees, shows good vision, and stays with assignments. Blocks down well on opponents. Uses his hands to get separation from opponents and effectively adjusts to the errant throw catching the ball.
Negative: Displays marginal quickness. Fights the ball and unnecessarily lets passes get inside him. Not fluid in his movements.
Analysis: Reuland is a size prospect who could make a roster as a third tight end brought onto the field in short-yardage situations."

Strengths: Big, tall tight end who uses his body well to wall off defenders on his routes to secure receptions. Looks the ball into his hands well. Locks onto defenders once he gets his hands on them. Good strength at the POA, as he can create lanes for the ball carrier to run through.
Weaknesses: An adequate athlete, but he will struggle to separate in his routes and lacks the athleticism to go up and come down with the ball. Not much of a threat in the open field once he secures the ball.
Projection: UDFA. Reuland's blocking skills could allow him to develop into an effective second or third TE at the next level."
