He was dismissed from Florida State, and enrolled at Valdosta State. Unfortunately, before the season started, Reid tore his ACL and did not play.

Analysis

Strengths

Electric returner. A threat to take the ball to the house any time he touches the football due to elusiveness and tremendous open-field vision. Shows good short area quickness and aggression. Fluid in his movements, and tracks the football well. Playmaker on the ball.

Weaknesses

Lacks the adequate size and strength to play outside corner. Questionable instincts. Prone to getting beat and giving up big plays in man coverage. Still unrefined in his technique. Multiple off the field issues, and a knee injury.

Bottom Line

Reid is a dynamic punt returner, and has the skill set to be an effective nickel corner. However, between multiple off the field issues which resulted in his dismissal from Florida State and an ACL tear this past season, there will be many questions for him to answer at the combine.
