Brooks Reed #56 OLB
Height: 6-3 Weight: 254 Age: 28
Born: 2/28/1987 Tucson , AZ
Experience: 5th season
High School: Sabino HS [Tucson, AZ]
Selected By: Houston Texans
Pick (Overall): 10 (42)
Reed has the awareness, technique and heart to be a productive player at the next level. Has some upside as a possible conversion to 3-4 outside linebacker. Gets to the quarterback with a variety of moves and a relentless motor. Uses his hands really well to maintain gap integrity and disengage from blockers against the run. Lack of size, his all-out playing style, and minor injury history pose some questions about his durability. Reed's a polished college defensive end who will likely come off the board in the mid-to-late rounds by a team that values his veteran-like skill-set.
