Drafted By: Titans
Grade
5.12 ?

Draft Analysis:

Reed is a quality cover man who flashes big play ability (2 INT ret TDs in 2015) and exciting ball skills. If nothing else, he's probably the most athletic Mr.Irrelevant we've seen in several years.

  • 5'11" Height
  • 195LBS. Weight

Analysis

Strengths

Good combination of size and timed speed. Very good instincts and able to jump throws quickly thanks to anticipatory talent. Ball skills are a plus. Had good ball production and willing to take chances and jump the short routes. Had six interceptions over last two years and took two of them to the house. Hands are exceptional.

Weaknesses

Play speed doesn't match his timed speed. Struggles at times from press coverage. Doesn't have the fluid hip turn and transition needed for tight, man coverage. Aggressive style opens him up to the big play.

Bottom Line

Height/weight/speed prospect with outstanding ball production over the last two seasons. Reed's play speed is average, but his playmaking might make up for it. Better scheme fit for defenses looking to play their corners off the line of scrimmage and reading the quarterback's eyes.
