Biography: Two-year starter who totaled 47/7/2 as a senior when he also intercepted one pass and broke up three more. Junior totals included 35 tackles.
Positives: Well-rounded linebacker who plays bigger and faster than his listed size/speed numbers. Hard-nosed football player who displays a good head for the game and consistently puts himself in a position to make plays on the ball. Shows skill in coverage, gets depth on drops, and has a nice burst to the action. Plays with good lean, quickly changes direction, and effectively redirects to the action. Relatively instinctive, with the ability to diagnose the action. Wraps up tackling.
Negatives: Easily knocked from his angle of attack and struggles taking on blocks. May have difficulty playing over tight end at the next level and does not have the pure foot speed to be used on the outside.
Analysis: Reamer did a solid job the past two seasons. Lacks the great athleticism and upside for the next level, yet he has enough ability to be used as a backup linebacker/special teams player.
