Default Re: Selection 2 - 42: Brooks Reed

found this amoung losts of stuff on him. I like our draft so far.

Quote:
Brooks Reed is drawing a lot of comparisons to Clay Matthews and it isn't just because of his long blond hair. Reed doesn't have the prototypical build or elite athletic ability, but he makes up for that with great instincts, a never ending motor, and deceptive strength. He played with his hand on the ground at Arizona, but his best fit would be in the 3-4 as a rush linebacker where he is asked to go out and just get after the Quarterback. Reed is very quick, and explosive. That was shown at the combine where he ran the fastest 10 yard split of any defensive lineman. He needs to improve as a run stopper, and do a better job taking on blockers, but he will mostly be used as a pass rusher, so it is not too big of an issue. This draft is short on rush linebackers and defensive ends that can make an impact day 1. So look for Reed to go somewhere in the late 1st to early 2nd. Teams like New England, New York Jets, Green Bay, and Houston would love to get him.

From what I am reading so far, you are right about him as a OLB. Which is exactly the position I wanted.

Default Re: Selection 2 - 42: Brooks Reed

Here's ESPN Insider's scouting report..

Here's ESPN Insider's scouting report. I love that we're getting hard working, high motor guys that just love to play football.

Production

3 2006: Redshirted. 2007: (7/0) 7 tackles, 0.5 TFL, 0.5 sacks. 2008: (13/13) 37 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 8 sacks. 2009: (10/8) 23 tackles, 5 TFL, 2 sacks. 2010: (13/13) 47 tackles, 10 TFL, 6.5 sacks.
Height-Weight-Speed

2 Slightly below-average in terms of height but possesses adequate bulk and very good top-end speed.

Durability

4 Suffered a high-ankle sprain at Iowa in 2009 and missed three games (two starts) as a result.

Intangibles

2 Hard worker and takes a passionate approach to game. Developed into the leader of the defense and voted a team captain as senior. No off-field issues to our knowledge. Made transition from H-back to DE in 2007.

1 = Exceptional2 = Above average3 = Average4 = Below average5 = Marginal

Defensive End Specific Traits

Pass Rush Skills

1 A quick-twitch athlete that shows an explosive first step off of the edge. Had the fastest 10-yard split time (1.54) of any defensive lineman at the 2011 combine. Shows quality rip and swim moves. Technically-sound and relentless. Uses hands extremely well to keep blocker off of frame. Very effective with speed-to-power moves. Can bend the edge tightly and shows outstanding leverage/flexibility. Will fight to get through the double team and works hard through the whistle. Closing burst is good but not elite category.

Versus the run

3 Is undersized and occasionally can get overwhelmed at the point of attack when blockers lock on. Is not an elite athlete and shows some stiffness in space when forced to quickly change directions. But he maximizes his physical tools versus the run thanks to excellent effort and technique. Does a very good job with his first step. Is quick off the ball, uses outstanding leverage and hand technique to take on and disengage from typically bigger blockers. Also takes on blockers with the proper shoulder (typically left shoulder at RDE) to ensure gap discipline. Strong tackler for the position. Rarely fails to wrap up when he's in position.

Versatility

2 Flashes potential to develop into a rush linebacker in the NFL. Not a great athlete but shows good quickness and adequate hip flexibility on tape when he occasionally drops into underneath zone. Displays awareness and discipline in coverage.

Instincts/Motor

1 Is disciplined and executes his assignments. Shows good awareness in all phases of the game. Is tough and aggressive. Flies around the field and is clearly passionate about his craft. Will chip the TE when necessary. Does a nice job of keeping outside leverage versus the run.
1 = Exceptional2 = Above average3 = Average4 = Below average5 = Marginal

I really like what we've done the first 2 rounds. Hard working, physical, high motor guys

Awesome.. I was trying to think of a nickname for this guy. Mini Claymaker, Brawler, Brooklyn...

But, if he hits as hard as his scouting says, then Brooks "The Thor-Hammer" Reed would be an appropriate nickname for this Greek God sculpted of a man.





My gawd, the resemblance is uncanny.

Would rep for life for a photshop pic of Brooks holding Thor's Hammer in last pic.

If he`d be as good as Clay he probably would`ve been a top 3 pick. But IŽd be alright if he only managed 8 sacks in his first year ;-).

Man this is going to be a good front 7. I finally feel like we have enough pieces to put together a good D line. I think that if Barwin can get back in game shape we are going to do some serious damage on defense.

We still need to add depth in the secondary, but I'm hoping that with this front 7 teams won't have long enough to burn our secondary.
