Scouting Report: Strengths
- Although Reed is more of a possession target than a field stretcher, he fiercely competitive demeanor and run-after-catch ability make him a major threat in the middle of the field.
- Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
- Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
- Reed has reliable hands and shows the willingness to make catches in traffic over the middle.
- Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Reed also had problems with drops when coming back to the action. He has some issues against press coverage, sometimes spending too much time hand fighting at the line of scrimmage.
- His ability to track the ball is good enough, but Reed too often let the ball get into his body downfield rather than snatching it with his hands.
- His playing speed is less than elite. Reed won’t run past defenders like he did at the college level.
- He’s short and slight, a non-option as a boundary receiver and a non-factor blocking in the run game.
