Jah Reid
Round 3, Pick 85
Position: T
Class:  5Sr
School: UCF
Conference: Conference USA
HT: 6-7
WT: 327
40 Time: 5.32
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two years.

Positives: "King-sized blocker with a lot of potential on the right side. Strong, can be devastating at the point of attack, and gets a lot of movement run blocking. Easily pushes defenders from their angle of attack in pass protection, blocks with good lean, and holds the point. Stays square, seals defenders from the action, and makes tremendous use of body positioning. Blocks with a nasty attitude and works hard to finish off defenders."

Negatives: "Must improve his blocking balance. Lacks footwork in pass protection. Struggles to adjust and exploited by quick, explosive opponents."

Analysis: Reid has the body type and skill to hold down a right tackle position in the NFL. He is a solid developmental prospect who will only get better as he becomes accustomed to the speed at the next level.

Projection: 4-5
