Three things have impressed with w/Reid...first is his speed...it's serious. Second is his ability to hit...he missed a couple of tackles, but also made some bone-jarring hits. Third is his field awareness...he's got good cover skills. Very early on, but from what I've seen so far, he was worth trading up for.
one play I see some are not talking about is the 2nd to 3rd last series for the Packers I believe, when Rodgers took off and almost got a first down.. Reid raced in from the secondary and took a great angle and tackled Rodgers preventing maybe a first down.
I love his angles so far... more often than not he gets it right...but he did have some bad angles, like that early screen...he allowed the play to be bigger than it should've been.
Can't believe he is playing this well as a rookie... can't remember the last time we had a rookie starting for us at Safety, and playing this well.
