Overview:

Reader is a big body, who is suited to be in a 3-4 scheme, as a nose tackle. He has great size, is a solid tackler, and a pure run stuffer. He also gets a good push on the offensive line, and he has a good spin move to get around the offensive line. On the other hand, he does not have good speed, and he gets pushed back at times on the line of scrimmage. With that said, I see Reader going between the end of day 2, and beginning of day 3.
