Brooks Reed 2011 Combine Numbers


Recommended Posts

Short area closing burst could be asset as MLB. If he looked like he had the flexability to turn the corner I would say he was the LEO but I kinda cringe at the thought. Maybe he is the MLB or maybe he surprises as LEO with Shembo as his back up.

Texans fans are saying he cant play MLB. Hes a SLB, whos good in space. Can play DE and set the edge but he isnt good at pass rushing. Playing him at Leo would set him up for failure.

Forgive me if I'm not thrilled with picking up a 3-4 OLB that had trouble getting to the passer on a defense where the other team was double and tripple teaming JJ Watt every snap.

He can play anywhere.

He is Big, Strong, Fast and Smart.

He trained with DE Watts, Very Hard worker,

so he will be a good leader too!

I don't understand this signing. I don't see where he projects in Quinn's defense. He has never been very productive..bad move TD

I agree. I don't see anything special with this guy, if anything, he is exactly like the other under achievers that are already here. A very Meh signing.
