Eric Reid - S - LSU

Now I know it appears to be a homer pick but watch as much of this video as you can

IMO he has great size (6'2 212) and can lay the wood better than anyone in the league. He has solid covering ability and that will improve with growth. Could easily see him being a great safety valve back there for many years.

He is a great tackler, rarely misses them. Has the speed to cover TE's along with size.

Thoughts?

I don't think he is good enough to take with a top 10 pick

He has not impressed me this year. Not sure what it's been, but he hasn't been around the ball.

Yeah that's the thing about Reid. We'll be picking in the top 5 most likely and there's no way we'll touch him that early.

As an LSU fan, you should be screaming for Sam Montgomery to play DE for us.

I would love Montgomery and I hope end up picking him. Just seeing some people's opinion of Reid around here

I personally love Reid and if we are in the top 5 which most of us assume we will be then what's wrong with trading down 10 or so picks to get a safety that is clearly more physically talented than anybody on our roster. Plus with a trade down we could get another 2nd rounder and fill more needs!

don't think any safety (although this class is deep) warrants a top ten pick. would rather take one in the second round

I have seen Reid compared to Mark Barron.. they have the same strengths and weaknesses. Barrons stock skyrocketed after the combine.. so I could see the same for Reid. If we have a lower Top 10 pick, I could see us taking him.. however, the way it's going, we will have a Top 5 pick, and I don't think we take a safety that early.
