Bruno Reagan, C, Vanderbilt

Height: 6-3 | Weight: 315 | Number: #61 | Class: 2019 (SR) | Hometown: Clarksville, TN | High School: Clarksville | Birthdate: May 24, 1996 | Major: Communication | Agent: Premier Athlete Advisors | Trainer: 615 Sports Training | Twitter: @BrunoReagan

OVERVIEW: Has played both guard and center, finishing his Commodores career with 40 consecutive starts and having never missed a game or practice. Was originally recruited as a defensive lineman by then head coach James Franklin but was converted to offensive line when Derek Mason took over. Smart player who is known to be a quiet competitor, according to his teammates. Reagan has proven that he can take a licking and keep on ticking, matching up against much bigger players on a regular basis in the SEC and appears ready to make the transition to the NFL. The ability to play all three interior offensive line positions bodes well for his draft stock as a late Day 3/priority free agent prospect.

PROS: Team captain, durable, consistent performer with hound dog demeanor. Demonstrates excellent pad level, gets into defender’s chest and possesses very active hands, usually clawing, clasping or grabbing to get the job done. Mechanically sound fundamentals, understands balance and leverage with sound stance. Shows surprising waist and knee flexibility; was a state champion high school wrestler and world class judo fighter. Does a nice job baiting opposing lineman out of position and is an accurate snapper out of shotgun.

CONS: Speed and quickness are two areas where he isn’t going to wow anyone; he may not be the first to the spot but he knows his exact role once he gets there. He can struggle with power at times and his short arms don’t do him any favors. He’ll need to continue to bulk up and get stronger; room to convert some fat into muscle.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: “Smart, intangible-type prospect who doesn’t have the athletic traits that will show up in numbers or workouts but he does have the ability to be a backup at both OG and OC in the NFL.” – Anonymous NFL Scout

COMPARISON: Ted Karras, New England Patriots – A bulldozer in the trenches with the ability to play multiple positions and serve as a valuable swing man.

PERSONAL: Full name is Bruno Ricardo Reagan. Son of Mackel and Isabel Reagan, has one brother, Eduardo, and one sister, Gabriela. Parents participated in collegiate sports at Austin Peay: dad as a football player; mom as an All-Ohio Valley Conference volleyball player. Has earned national recognition in wrestling and judo competitions.

CAREER: Finished with 40 consecutive career starts. In 2018, he started 13 games (five at right guard and nine at center), playing 98% of the 788 Vanderbilt offensive snaps during the season. Behind Reagan and the offensive line, the Commodore offense averaged 397.8 total yards, the highest single-season total by a Vanderbilt offense since the mid-1970s. In 2017, he started all 12 games at center. In 2016, he started all 13 games, lining up at right guard on 90% of the team’s snaps. In 2016, he started two games at right guard, while playing on special team conversion units. Did not see action as a true freshman in 2014.

HIGH SCHOOL: Began playing football as a sophomore in high school. Was a three-year letter winner, two-year starter and senior team captain. Earned Class 5A All-State and All-Region honors as a senior, finishing the season with more than 20 pancake blocks. As a junior, was state heavyweight champion, finishing the year with a 57-0 individual record.
