I can see where you might make that comparison but I have to consider the guys responsible for making the respective picks.

Reid doesn't have near the rep for developing QBs as Gibbs has for developing O-linemen.
The difference in the respective "brain trusts" is why I consider Brown less of "a reach" than Kolb was.
