Default Re: Brooks Reed- Do you like the pick?

Houston would've been nice, Paea would've been nice...I think some of these CBs are gonna fall, there hasn't yet been a spurt of offensive players...

I'm satisfied though.

Watt - ??? - Williams
Reed - Cushing - Ryans - Barwin
Jackson - ??? - Quin - ???

Need a few more answers yet. Watt/Reed seems like a good start. So it's NT, CB and S left. 5 more picks.

Default Re: Brooks Reed- Do you like the pick?

I'm not sure how I feel about this pick. Most reports (including today's ESPN Draft Show) repeatedly use the term "stiff" or "stiff hips." Many feel that he was an overachiever in college and has met his peak. I guess we'll see.

04/04/2011 - Top linebacker prospects: 4. Brooks Reed, Arizona, 6-3, 263, 2 Reed worked out with the defensive linemen at the combine, but he projects best to outside linebacker in a 3-4. He only enhanced that probability with a 4.65 40, which was faster than 18 of the 24 linebackers tested in Indy. That included a position-best 1.54-second 10-yard split among defensive linemen, showing his explosive first step. Reed isn't quite as athletic as Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, but he does change directions with fluidity and impressed in positional drills at the combine and the Senior Bowl. The three-year starter closed his career with 114 tackles and 17 sacks and was first-team All-Pac-10 in 2010. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange


Overview

Reed has been an active part of one of the best pass rushes in college football for the past two years, but is a bit of an end/outside linebacker 'tweener as an NFL prospect. He's slightly undersized for a 4-3 end and lacks the fluid hips for assignments like open-field tackles and man coverage against tight ends as a 3-4 linebacker. However, the NFL will get effort, hustle and quickness off the snap at either position.

Analysis

Positives: Three-year starter at end is a combination of effort, hustle and quickness off the snap. Could get a look as a 4-3 end, but is also well suited for outside linebacker in a 3-4. Stays low, runs well and is relentless in pursuit. Powerful bull rush and a quality speed rush. Consistent and strong tackler, can deliver the big hit. Contributes on special teams. Smart in the classroom, fiery leader on the field - top intangibles.

Negatives: Appears a bit stiff in the hips and doesn't change directions well. Has bull and speed rushes and an OK spin move as pass rush techniques - that's it. Spin move is the double-move. Doesn't disengage from blocks effectively. Did not fare well against better competition. While effort is good, isn't very effective as a lineman against the run, and can be overpowered and washed. Doesn't have a lot of experience in pass coverage.

How can they say he changes direction well and then say he doesn't change direction well? Which is it?!?

The three guys I wanted were all off the board already. Of the LB left, I preferred the kid from Georgia and the S from UCLA.

Its not a bad pick, but its not a good pick either.

I think Reed has benefited by Clay Mathews' success. Matthews didn't put up great stats in college and it concerned more than just a handful of people. Now Reed looks like a similar type of player and I think Wade feels that he has Clay Mathews II.

I think Reed played real well in college. Never really stood out nationally because Arizona has a LOT of really good D players and they all do their role well. I think Reed plays like Matthews in the sense he's relentless. With that said Clay had more pass rushing moves coming out.

So far this board seems to really like him. Our first two selections have been very popular around these parts. What a nice change.
