Positive: Relatively athletic defensive lineman who makes plays in every direction of the field. Moves well on his feet, plays with good lean, and nicely redirects to the action. Flashes strength and the ability to get force up the field. Keeps his feet moving on contact. Plays with leverage and has quick hands.
Negative: Displays marginal quickness and explosiveness. Does not possess great closing burst and has poor size/speed numbers.
Analysis: Reed is a developmental prospect who's shown flashes the past three seasons but has not put together a complete game. He's a practice squad player who may need a year in an NFL weight training program before he's ready to take the field."
