Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Review: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DJ READER: Will compete for a rotation role as a nose tackle. Vince Wilfork didn’t play a snap in the 2015 preseason, so Reader will get plenty of chances to showcase his ability. He can be a powerful inside presence versus double teams. Demonstrates active hands, ability to separate and fill the gap. A two-down player as an interior press-the-pocket and bull rush athlete.
