Kendall Reyes DL SD Mar 10 '79
Ricky Henne of Chargers.com identified DE Kendall Reyes as a potential breakout player.
Henne cites a strong finish in 2012, capped off by a 3.5 sack game against the Jets. Pro Football Focus had Reyes ranked behind his bookend, Corey Liuget, and also considered him a liability against the run. However, he had a much stronger second half of the season, and will have an opportunity to carry that momentum into this year.

"While it is early, all indications are the Chargers have potentially found something special in Reyes," writes ESPN.com's Bill Williamson, predicting the No. 49 overall pick will play a significant role "right away." San Diego's front-seven looks to be much improved this season.

Chargers agreed to terms with No. 49 overall pick DE Kendall Reyes on a four-year contract.
A 40-game starter at UConn, Reyes offers intriguing size (6'4/300) and athleticism while also boasting short-area quickness and impressive intangibles. He could see playing time right out of the gates as an interior rusher in nickel packages.
