Lions selected Princeton DT Caraun Reid with the No. 158 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Reid (6-foot-2 1/8, 302) was one of Rotoworld college guru Josh Norris' favorite prospects for his ability to shed double teams in the Ivy League, and efficient use of his hands. He racked up 20.5 career sacks at Princeton, and blocked seven kicks. Reid is an athletic penetrator with 4.91 speed and an 8-foot-10 broad jump. He especially gained evaluators' respect at the Senior Bowl, showing an ability to play all over the defensive front. Reid projects as an early-career contributor. Sat, May 10, 2014 03:03:00 PM

Bengals DL coach Jay Hayes put Princeton DT Caraun Reid through his positional drills at Princeton's pro day on Friday.

Cincinnati is in the market for defensive line help; according to NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah, it is their greatest need. Reid (6-foot-2, 305 pounds) ran the forty in 4.85 and 4.91 seconds at last week's event. He leaped to a 27 1/2-inch vertical, and decided to keep the rest of his numbers from the combine. He should fall in the Rds. 3-5 range in May.

Scout Inc.'s Kevin Weidl says Princeton DT Caraun Reid "has a nice quickness/power combo."

"Heavy handed dude," he wrote after watching Reid's game gapes. "Played with more consistent pad level and leverage as a senior." Reid is about to become just the third Princeton player drafted since 1990. The Ivy Leaguer is one of Rotoworld's favorite small school prospects. There's a chance he could sneak into the draft's second day.
Sat, Mar 22, 2014 06:19:00 PM's Charles Davis mentions Princeton DT Caraun Reid as a draft sleeper.

Reid is coming off an impressive Senior Bowl in which he "did not seem intimidated" by upgraded competition, according to the analyst. "Reid is a thick, stout guy, but he needs to learn how to better use his hands," wrote Davis. "He doesn't come from a school that produces many NFL prospects -- he would be the third Princeton player drafted since 1990 -- but he could be a mid-round draft pick that surprises at the next level." Reid is one of our favorite small school players. We think there's even a chance he could sneak into the draft's second day.

Princeton DT Caraun Reid has accepted an invitation to the 2014 Senior Bowl.

Reid has produced at a high level for years now and has the game and body type to compete with FBS talents. He could really make a name for himself in Mobile, and we thing Reid has a shot at a day two selection.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Princeton senior DT Caraun Reid is a small school prospect worth knowing.

Weidl tweeted Reid is "quick (feet/hands) and disruptive as a pass rusher." Princeton recently produced prospect Mike Catapano, a seventh-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, but Reid has a chance to be an earlier selection. He did suffer a season ending injury in 2010 but has combined for 25.5 tackles for loss over the last two seasons, including 13.5 sacks.
