The pros that are listed for Reid he does them extremely well, probably better than all safeties that are draft eligible. He seems at his best when he doesn’t have an assignment and you just let him roam and use that violent fearless mentality. I believe Reid could benefit from an additional year in college to brush up on some fundamentals that needs improvement. Overall I believe Reid is still a very raw product which he should not be at this point in his career. Should Reid brush up on his fundamentals he would be more consistent, effective, and an overall better prospect. Watch Reid in action!
