Detroit Lions draft preview S Eric Reid
Broke down LSU S Eric Reid. He came out early as a junior like most of team.
Strengths: great tackler. Can run the ally and tackle in the open field. Really made the plays against A&M and South Carolina. Did show coverage skills including some match ups with WR Ryan Swope.
Weakness: Did not show great range or ball skills at centerfield or in deep half.
Bottom line: the Lions could use his guy. He would be an upgrade in run defense over our guys. The question is can he cover enough ground in space? I rate him 6.9 or solid starter as a rookie. 2nd round.
