2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Eric Reid, FS, LSU
This 6'2", 212-pounder is at his best playing a center field role where he can drop into a zone and diagnose the play in front of him. He has an adequate ability to break on the ball and displays an excellent awareness. While lacking some straight line speed, Reid has a great feel for where the play will be and putting himself in a position to make plays.
In run support, he is average at best. He can wrap in open space, but does not shine or excel in open-field situations. Reid over-pursues and struggles staying on assignment when running sideline-to-sideline. He will need to show an improved willingness to mix it up against ball-carriers.
In coverage, Reid plays better in zone. He should be able to keep up with most athletic tight ends in man coverage, but lacks elite top-end speed and could be in trouble against shiftier receivers if asked to cover the slot. His long arms allow him to swipe after the ball in the air and make the occasional interception.
Reid currently projects as a second-rounder in the 2013 NFL Draft after seeing his draft stock rebound in recent weeks.
