    Round 5, Pick #158: DT Caraun Reid


    ANALYSIS

    STRENGTHS Very quick off the ball. Disruptive shooting gaps and working half a blocker. Active and energetic -- feet are always running. Plays hard and competes. Very good sack production from the interior (20.5 career sacks). Good intelligence. Is very young (entered college as 17-year-old freshman) and still growing into his body -- has physical upside. Good length and hand-eye coordination -- 7 career blocked kicks.

    WEAKNESSES Tends to stand straight up, negating his quickness and power out of the gate. Is not stout and can be waylaid by the double team. Marginal upper-body strength (diminished from 2011 pectoral surgery). Shows little feel for blocking pressure and can be late to locate the ball. Can do a better job protecting his legs. Pushed around too easily. Durability issues have crept up throughout his career.

    DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 3-4

    BOTTOM LINE A quick, agile, tilted nose who is effective slanting and stunting and working his way into the backfield. Has kicked outside in passing situations and has the tools to pique the interest of aggressive, one-gapping, 3-4 fronts such as the Jets, Steelers or Ravens as a five-technique. Developmental talent with raw traits to mold.

    Seems like another upside pick. Definitely won't hurt him to develop behind Suh and Fairley. If all the guys develop we could have an freaky athletic defense with KVN, Ansah, Webster, and Reid.

    2015 starter. No doubt. Game is similar to Geno Atkins. Love this kid. He is a hometown favorite here in NJ. I wanted this pick to happen but never thought it would after we passed on him in the 4th. I thought he was an early 3rd, late 4th because his technique needs some polishing but he is going to be really good once he is properly coached.

    Yes. Very smart beast. Between him, Ebron, KVN and Swanson we seem to have drafted some pretty smart guys. English is an athletic guy too. They said he can play DE or TE for us.
