Utah OLB Trevor Reilly had knee scope, hopes to be ready for combine per Rob Rang


According to Rob Rang of CBS SportsUtah outside linebacker and edge rusher Trevor Reilly had a scope on his right knee.  Reilly is hoping to be ready for the NFL Scouting Combine next month.  This would explain why Reilly was not at any of the postseason All-Star games as he was a talented player for the Utes this season.

Reilly has a unique combination of athleticism and length that allows him to glide around the field like a basketball player.  He has shown he can be a real asset in pass coverage as well as a nice speed rusher off of the edge.

If Reilly is ready for the Combine, he will be able to show NFL teams he is healthy and show off his athletic ability and range for the position.
