You can say that again. As much as I respect Ed Reed as a player, his body of work, it was clear last night between himself and Eric who was on the decline and who is on the rise. We dodged taking a big cap hit signing an aging, worn vet by drafting Reid, who is turning out to be hands down the best safety coming out of the 2013 draft (with little impact on the cap
). Keep playing the way he is and getting even better (
), Pro Bowls and All Pro are in his future and I'd like to see him in a Niner uniform for a very long time. Going to be great watching the guy continue to grow and improve. Outstanding pick by Harbaalke
