ED REED: Miami, 5110 201 4.50. Four year starter with experience at free and strong safety. Well-built but smaller than ideal with relatively short arms and legs. Very productive player. Good athlete with solid man coverage skills for a safety. Smooth in his backpedal. Can turn and run well. Speedy. Instinctive. Breaks on the ball skillfully. Aggressively looks to make plays — is a natural interceptor with good hands and body control — runs well after the pick. A little out of control at times — sometimes is too interception conscious. Shows toughness as a tackler but is a bit inconsistent in that phase — doesn’t attack the run as forcefully as he might. Solid special teams player with kick blocking ability. Quality prospect.
