Lions second-year DT Caraun Reid worked out with Ndamukong Suh for "several weeks" during the offseason.
A fifth-round pick out of Princeton last year, Reid has drawn praise from the coaching staff at voluntary workouts. He's even been getting some first-team reps after playing just 112 snaps as a rookie. The starting job next to Haloti Ngata is open to competition. Competing with Tyrunn Walker, Reid was one of Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris' favorite prospects last year. Jun 12 - 9:44 AM

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, and is insurance on contract-year DT Nick Fairley.
