Former LSU Tiger Eric Reid living the dream

LSU fans keeping an eye on former Tiger safety Eric Reid's pro career will see him suit up for the 49ers against the Saints Sunday, if he has anything to say about it. Reid suffered his second concussion of the NFL season last Sunday, but he practiced this week for the 49ers, symptom free. Reid does need to pass a light-contact test that's part of the NFL's new concussion...

Reid getting chance at safety alongside Whitner

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer Almost every time Donte Whitner looks at rookie Eric Reid he's reminded of what it was like to be a safety selected in the first round competing for a starting spot. Whitner, San Francisco's savvy strong safety, had little time to adjust to the speed of the NFL. Taken eighth overall by the Buffalo Bills in 2006...

SEC dominates the NFL Draft and LSU sets a record

The LSU Tigers set an NFL Draft record by having 6 defensive players taken in the first 3 rounds of the draft. Yes, Tyrann Mathieu counts towards that number because the last school he played for was, you guessed it, LSU. No. 6: Barkevious Mingo, Cleveland Browns No. 18: Eric Reid, San Francisco 49ers No. 45: Kevin Minter, Arizona Cardinals No. 67: Bennie Logan, Philadelphia Eagles...

NFL Draft: 49ers Trade Up, Draft Safety Eric Reid

It comes as no surprise at all that the San Francisco 49ers packaged a pair of picks to trade up from No.31 to No.18 overall in the draft. It does, however, come as a surprise that they chose to take LSU safety Eric Reid, a player many draft analysts had projected to go late in the first round or early second round. San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke sent the Niner’s...

Mingo, Reid Go in 2013 NFL First Round

The first round of the NFL Draft has come and gone which saw two LSU Tigers hear their names called. Barkevious Mingo went 6th overall to the Browns while Eric Reid was picked 18th by the San Francisco 49ers.

First Round NFL Draft Grades: San Francisco 49ers

PICK: Eric Reid, S, LSU ANALYSIS: I know San Francisco was going to trade up for someone, but why Reid? I know there's been a lot of buzz around him lately (mostly with the Bengals), but I just don't see him as a first round prospect. I think San Francisco could have stayed put and taken a better safety like Matt Elam. He fills a big need, but I just can't understand...

2013 NFL Draft: 5 Second Rounders That Could Sneak Into the First

Like I mentioned in my pieces about teams that could trade up and those that could trade down, this final week to the draft is always filled with stories about how this prospect has a rising stock and this one is falling. Most of the stories, like the one about DeAndre Hopkins trashing a hotel room during the combine, are about as worthless as most “October Surprise” stories...

2013 NFL Draft Team Needs: Dallas Cowboys

1. Interior Lineman: Dallas needs to completely remake the interior of their offensive line. Costa will probably start at center, but he might not be at full strength after his injury. First round looks like a lock to address the interior of their line as long as Cooper adn/or Warmack are available. They could also double dip at this position later in the draft. 2. Safety...
