Possesses good bend and anchor strength, doesn't overextend on his punch and displays good hand placement when asked to get into defenders, maximizing his length. Is forced to open up his hips at times and push defenders past the edge, but again understands angles, allows his QB to step up in the pocket and can keep his corner clean. Isn't the type of heavy handed pass blocker his size would indicate, but demonstrates a good jolt on contact. Would like to see him stick to defenders and lock out with more consistency through the play.
However, is a strong run blocker who fires off the ball low, gets his hands under the pad level of his opposing linemen, gains leverage and can drive defenders off the football. Displays a good initial jolt off the snap, doesn't roll his hips and has a real snap at the point. When asked to kick-out block on the inside he's routinely able to eliminate his man. Will bucket step quickly to allow defenders to take themselves out of the play and is quick to seal.
Impression: A big, physical, long-armed right tackle who understands angles, is balanced in both the run and pass game and can bend. Lacks great range, but has enough to hold up on the right side as a reserve type option."
Positive: King-sized blocker with a lot of potential on the right side. Strong, can be devastating at the point of attack, and gets a lot of movement run blocking. Easily pushes defenders from their angle of attack in pass protection, blocks with good lean, and holds the point. Stays square, seals defenders from the action, and makes tremendous use of body positioning. Blocks with a nasty attitude and works hard to finish off defenders.
Negative: Must improve his blocking balance. Lacks footwork in pass protection. Struggles to adjust and exploited by quick, explosive opponents.
Analysis: Reid has the body type and skill to hold down a right tackle position in the NFL. He is a solid developmental prospect who will only get better as he becomes accustomed to the speed at the next level."
Negatives: Lacks good lateral range... Gets a little too high in his stance... Overextends and lunges to reach the edge... Slow to redirecting... Not real pretty and struggles to stay in front of defenders but he usually gets the job done... Marginal hand placement, allows his hands to get wide... Allows defenders into his body... Stiff... Awkward in space... Doesn't break down especially well on the move... Throws his body into his downfield blocks and is on the ground too much."
Strengths: Extremely strong, high protective instincts, and physically imposing player. 1st team All C-USA two years running. Has height and arm length advantage at the line of scrimmage.
Weaknesses: Excelled in a weaker conference. Not a trial-tested run blocker. Slow and plodding, not very agile. Might have trouble handling the pass rush at the next level.
Projection: Currently I have Jah ranked as the 12th best Offensive Tackle in the draft. He's a physical monster and should be considered around the 5th Round."
