Overview

Reed brings a lot of versatility to the table but lacks the athleticism to become a starter.. Could turn into a back up run-stopping defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker for a team that stresses gap-integrity. Does a good job against the run, coming off the ball, keeping blockers off his body, and maintaining outside contain but struggles against bigger tackles, with misdirection, and won't make a ton of plays from the backside or in space. Currently does not offer much as a pass rusher but could develop into an adequate power rusher with some more moves and technical refinement. Reed's a late-round prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Reed can bull rush to the passer and uses his hands to get off blocks. Displays good get off. Holds up pretty well as a two-gap run defender. Can stack and keep blockers off his body and set the edge. Has experience sliding inside. Exhibits a good motor.

Weaknesses

Not a consistent threat as a pass rusher. Doesn't explode off the ball. Lacks the expansive package of counter moves to get unblocked. Can be blown off the ball in the running game when matched up against road graders. Awareness is only adequate. Not overly comfortable tackling in space.
