BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded All-America honors last season. Spent four seasons in the Chicago White Sox organization and will turn 27 years old this season. Suffered a devastating knee injury during his pro-day workout on March 12th.

POSITIVES: Reed was a solid college tackle but a marginal NFL prospect before his knee injury last month. He is a 27-year-old prospect who must now rehabilitate a serious injury, and it will be an uphill climb for Reed.

NEGATIVES: Bends at the waist and lacks blocking range. Does not get much movement as a run blocker.

ANALYSIS: Well-sized pass blocker who makes outstanding use of body positioning. Stays square, effectively uses angles, and works his hands throughout the action. Large enough to seal defenders from the action or engulfs them at the point of attack.

PROJECTION: 7-FA
