|Height & Weight:||6'3 - 263 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brooks Reed, DE, Arizona
Reed started off strong again as an upperclassman in 2009, but missed some time with an ankle injury. He only missed a few games, but his numbers took a hit. Reed started getting into the backfield more consistently as a senior. On the year he tallied a career high 47 tackles, including 10.0 tackles-for-loss and 6.0 sacks.
Reed's impressive showing at the NFL combine has him quickly moving up draft boards. Widely considered a mid-round selection previously, Reed is now a pretty safe second round pick. At the worst, due to the depth at the end and rush linebacker position, Reed could fall to the third round. Reed was labeled as a tweener and nobody really knew if he was a defensive end in a 4-3 or an outside linebacker in a 3-4. He proved at the combine that he could be very successful at either position.
