Either way could care less if he wins DROY. Rather have him not win it and strive to get better than win it and have a sophomore slump. Guy just needs to fine tune his tackling and hit the jugs machine. I don't think the guys who wanted Reid thought he would do this well. So far a big LOL at all the fans of the 49ers and of the NFL who said Eric Reid at 18?.. 49ers traded a 3rd to get him.. bad move, bad pick. You could have had him at 31.
I notice his tackling issues come around the sidelines. He doesnt seem to have issues in the middle of the field which is good. Seems like he is a bit undecissive with his approach on the sidelines, not sure at times to use the sideline or to wrap up and tackle. I just dont think he is really used to the strength and tightrope walking NFL players can do on the sidelines. He is probably used to his strength being enough to force players out of bounds.
Anyways, its something that certainly should improve since i havent really seen issues with it in other areas of the field.
