Strengths Weaknesses

He passes the eye test and is well-built from head to toe, but he doesn't play as powerful or physical as he looks and needs to play up to his size. Reed is too easily slowed and controlled by single blockers and lacks the upper body functional strength and nasty attitude to create much separation between him and offensive linemen. He is at his best when he keeps his pads low and uses his length to attack the chest of blockers, but he isn't overly fluid, showing some clear hip and joint tightness.

Reed has the size, motor and football character that have landed him in some way too early first round mock drafts, but he needs to improve his bland pass rush arsenal and continue to get stronger to come anywhere close to a first round grade next spring.

--Dane Brugler (6/13/14)
