Brooks Reed   #50 DE

Height: 6-3   Weight: 254   Age: 31

Born: 2/28/1987 Tucson , AZ

College: Arizona

Experience: 8th season

High School: Sabino HS [Tucson, AZ]









Draft 2011

Pick No.42

Selected By: Houston Texans

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 10 (42)

Pick Analysis: 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.
