Over Rated!! Hah!!
Don't get me wrong: I LOVE Brooks Reed. LOVE him. He plays with his HAIR on fire, every single play, every single day. And he brings an undeniable passion and enthusiasm to this Great Game that I do believe will take him FAR. He has unquestionable BURST, and outstanding Closing Speed, but...not much else.
In a Game where Passion and Intensity can parlay a little bit of Talent into a long career, I believe that Brooks Reed will do just that. Furthermore, his drive and infectious enthusiasm will bring an intangible value to whichever team gets him.
But his Pass Rushing repertoire is bone dry, he has poor Fluidity and Lateral Agility, he doesn't have the Flanking Power to eclipse the Edge, and he can be Run on, because he plays too high too often.
Would I love to have the guy on my team?? Absolutely.
But Brooks Reed is currently projected to be an early 2nd Rounder who might go in the 1st...and that is INSANE.
VASTLY Over Rated!!
