2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DJ REED: Kansas State, 5091 188 4.50. Two-year starter from Bakersfield, CA. Red-shirted at Fresno State as a freshman before transferring to Cerritos Junior College for two years. Undersized but has good leaping ability and ball skills. Plays press and off-man along with the deep outside zones. Mirrors cuts off the line and shows a quick stab on his turn and run to lock out a receiver. Fluid change of direction with quick lateral ability. When playing off shows a smooth pedal with the spacing to maintain cushion. Quick on his plant and drive with the play in front of him. Has the speed to stay in phase on vertical routes and reacts to intermediate cuts with no wasted movement. Reads quarterback when in a receiver’s pocket and times his hands to the catch point. Can make plays in recovery mode. Willing in run support. Throws his body at tackles and can hang on despite size. At times cushion is too big and there is separation. Could be prone to illegal contact at the next level. Lack of height can be a factor on the deep throw even when in phase. Normally has good eye discipline but will sneak a peek at the quarterback in man coverage. Good return skill with vision and change of direction. Projects as a nickel/slot corner and return specialist. 2017 stats: 47 T, 4.5 TFL, 9 PBU, 1 FF, 17-582 KOR, 34.2 avg, 1 TD, 17-253 PR, 14.8 avg, 1 TD. BTR:left 4.65, right 4.82. OSR:24/41.
