Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 188 40: 4.40 Year: 5Sr

Neg: Adequate size as a receiver. Marginal offensive production until last year.

Analysis: Positively impacting Florida State in a variety of ways, Reid significantly improved his draft stock as a senior. Stands as possible first-day pick and third receiver/return specialist in the NFL.
