Overview:

Reed finished his career at Kansas State, where he played n 24 career games, had 125 tackles, 5.0 for loss, 7 interceptions, 25 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles, and 2 fumbles recovered. He has great speed, he is a ball hawk, a tackling machine, and a shut down cornerback. He is a hard hitter, is very physical, and does not back down. He s a ferocious defender, and a relentless defender. He also had good instincts, is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. On the other hand, he is on the smaller side, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Reed being as day 2 pick when it is all said and done.
