Texas senior DE Cedric Reed "doesn't play as powerful or physical as he looks" and he "needs to play up to his size," says CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
Brugler is confused as to why many in the industry are touting Reed as a potential first-round pick. "Reed is too easily slowed and controlled by single blockers and lacks the upper body functional strength and nasty attitude to create much separation between him and offensive linemen," Brugler wrote. "He is at his best when he keeps his pads low and uses his length to attack the chest of blockers, but he isn't overly fluid, showing some clear hip and joint tightness." Earlier this month, the analyst said Reed had "very average tape." Obviously his opinion hasn't changed. "Reed has the size, motor and football character that have landed him in some way too early first round mock drafts, but he needs to improve his bland pass rush arsenal and continue to get stronger to come anywhere close to a first round grade next spring," he wrote.
