Draft 2017

Pick No.124

Selected By: Detroit Lions

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 18 (124)

Pick Analysis: Jalen's father, Marques Maybin, was a basketball player at Louisville but was paralyzed from the waist down after a car accident when Jalen was eight years old. Reeves-Maybin was a four-star linebacker recruit from Tennessee (2,000-plus rushing yards, all-state as a defender), and contributed as a true freshman as a reserve in 11 games (14 tackles, 11 on special teams). He stepped up to lead the Volunteers in tackles at weak-side linebacker as both a sophomore (101 tackles, 11 for loss, two sacks) and junior (105 tackles, 14 for loss, six sacks, four pass breakups). Reeves-Maybin's senior year, however, was a struggle. He was ejected for targeting in the season opener and then missed the bulk of the season with a shoulder injury, finishing with 20 tackles, two for loss. He considered redshirting to return to Knoxville in 2017 but decided to go to the NFL instead.
