Pros:

Good recovery speed..Great hands…pretty good build for his size…Top level kick and punt returner…dynamic with the balls in his hands (great field vision and speed)…a  willing run supporter…pretty good awareness in zone coverage…

Cons:

Size and strength are his is biggest weakness (and everything that comes with that, not going to win a million jump ball scenarios, can get bested in press coverage routinely at the N.F.L. level, could take a beating in run support)…limited upside (as a very good nickel cornerback and return man)…Sometimes is too aggressive and gives up a big play…character concerns? Was arrested in September

Player comparison: Javier Arenas with better ball skills at cornerback

Thoughts:

Greg Reid is absolutely dynamic with the ball in his hands. he has great hands and makes a lot of plays on the ball, but really lacks the size to play outisde in most systems in the N.F.L. Reid is, perhaps the best return man in all of college football which is going to help him stick for a long time in the N.F.L. Reid should return for his senior season. What you also like about Reid is that he hit the weight room hard over the summer to get stronger.

Instinctive player who excels not only on the defensive side of the ball but as a returner on special teams.
