BIO: Four-year starter named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year last season after posting 89/12/2. Led the team in tackles as a junior with 109 after a career-best 133 as a sophomore. Awarded All-Conference honors throughout his college career.
POSITIVES: Productive linebacker who plays bigger and faster than his size/speed numbers. Instinctive, displays a good head for the ball and scrapes laterally to make plays. Nasty, flashes on the scene and brings it hard to ball carriers. Displays cover skills in the box and immediately recognizes assignments.
NEGATIVES: Lacks lateral speed and does not sustain his burst. Gets average depth on drops.
ANALYSIS: A great worker with outstanding football intangibles, Reid is an overachieving blue-collar defender. May never be a consistent starter at the next level yet cannot be counted out.
