Pick Analysis: Very few prospects go through as many positional changes on one side of the ball as Jordan Reed did at Florida. As a quarterback recruit coming out of high school, Reed redshirt the 2009 season and entered 2010 without a defined role. A right knee injury during preseason practice certainly didn't help his cause. He went on to see some snaps at receiver before moving back to quarterback with five games remaining. At times Reed was more of a glorified running back, carrying the ball for a total of 48 times in the final three games of the season, half of those occurring in the bowl game against Penn State. In 2011, Reed made 10 starts at tight end after missing time in two games do to a lingering hamstring issue. Finally, as a junior, Reed came into his own in 2012 and looked like a natural at the tight end position while leading the Gators in receiving. He did not end the season on a high note, however, as Reed was reportedly benched in the Gators bowl game for attitude issues.

During his first year of seeing the field as a redshirt freshman, Reed accounted for 328 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 77 carries. He added 252 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception on 26 completions. Prior to his time at quarterback, Reed caught six passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. The next season, Reed found his home at tight end, hauling in 28 receptions for 307 yards and two touchdowns. To end his college campaign, Reed led Florida in receiving with 559 yards and three touchdowns on 45 receptions.
