Exactly what makes you think this? Yes he's got playmaking tendencies but he doesn't have the size or speed of an Ed Reed. Add in that he's a lousy tackler and tries to go for the homerun play WAY too often, lunging at the ball and let a receiver explode upfield as he whiffs and misses.
Undersized, bad technique to go along with character issues? I see him as a late 4th rounder at best, and by no means the "next" Ed Reed, if he turns out to be a halfway decent nickel corner and special teams maven, the team that drafts him should be thrilled.
