BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference and All-America honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 53/20/13 after 60/22.5/12 as a junior.

POSITIVES: "Tremendous college pass rusher with marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Intelligent defender who reads the action and chases hard to make plays. Plays with excellent pad level, moves well to the flanks, and rarely off his feet. Quickly changes direction and makes a lot of plays it down the line of scrimmage or in the backfield."

NEGATIVES: "Engulfed at the point by a single blocker. Shows a minimal burst of speed, and lacks the ability to quickly close on the action."

ANALYSIS: "A tremendous college defender the past two years, Reed has no true NFL position. He's a potential middle linebacker who must make a living on special teams."

PROJECTION: Free Agent
