Unfortunately this guy looks like a Taylor Mays clone.
Taylor Mays was very stiff. Like a board! He struggled to open his hips and transition from a backpedal to run with receivers.
Reid is much more fluid. Not to mention, he is a much better tackler. Reid can bend and get low.
Still, it was a surprise that we moved up to make the pick. At the end of the day though, it is better to go get what you want, rather than to hope for it to fall into your lap.
