Overview:

Reeves-Maybin has a very productive career at Tennessee, where he had 240 tackles, 27.0 for loss, and 8.0 sacks. He has good size, good speed, good instincts, is a sure fire tackler, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He is a defensive play maker, very disruptive on defense, and easily gets though the offensive line to get pressure on the quarterback. He has had injury issues at Tennessee, along with having issues being run over by big backs at times. With that said, I expect Reeves-Maybin to be a day 2 pick, as he has the talent, and the skill sets that you would look for in a 4-3 outside linebacker. But there is a chance that he slips due to having surgery recently to fix his shoulder, and biceps area that needed to be repaired.
