Jalen Reeves-Maybin Receives High Praise

Despite missing all but a handful of games his senior season thanks to injury, one NFL Network analyst thinks former Vol linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin is a solid draft prospect for the upcoming NFL Draft.

Ben Fennell, a producer for both the NFL Network and ESPN College Football, started watching film on Reeves-Maybin and began to gush on social media about what he found.

Fennell used the word “instinct” or “instinctive” many times to describe Reeves-Maybin, alluding to the fact that those are things that can’t be taught. According to Fennell, Reeves-Maybin’s instincts are what separate him from other linebackers and make him a viable draft candidate for the upcoming NFL Draft.

As a senior, Jalen Reeves-Maybin only played in four games before injury ended his season. He totaled 20 tackles and two tackles for loss as a senior. But Reeves-Maybin previous two years are what Fennell is basing his assertions on, especially Reeves-Maybin’s 2015 season. In his junior year, Reeves-Maybin totaled 105 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, and 4 pass breakups.

Jalen Reeves-Maybin was invited to and participated in the NFL Combine earlier this month, and he will have a chance to show off his athleticism and health at Tennessee’s Pro Day this Friday.
