With Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley gone, there will be a lot of opportunities for defensive tackle
Though it's still early during organized team activities, Reid has impressed coach Jim Caldwell thus far.
"I think he's done a tremendous job just in terms of his approach to it," Caldwell said. "He looks good, increased his strength, his lean muscle has gone up, I mean, the whole gamut. So, hopefully we'll see that translate when we get an opportunity to go out there and go after it."
Reid, a fifth-round pick out of Princeton in 2014, has gotten a majority of the first-team reps during OTA's, which defensive coordinator Teryl Austin says ties back to the hard work he put in during the offseason.
"He's trained really hard, he's in really good shape," Austin said. "He looks good right now. Obviously, we'll have to wait and see once we get to pads where we are, but I like what he's done so far."
Reid appeared in 12 games last season and recorded just two tackles.
