DE Brooks Reed

Last week it was reported that Arizona DE/OLB Brooks Reed would work out for the Falcons, well that workout is scheduled for today based on info provided by Pro Football Talk.

Reed has been moving up draft boards since the end of the season due to his versatility to play in either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme on the edge and a solid Combine workout performance. There he clocked a 4.68 40 time (4th best among defensive linemen) and did 30 bench reps of 225 pounds (tied for 10th best), showing both speed and strength packed into a small package (measured at 6-3/260 pounds at his pro day). Reed is noted for his relentless motor. He was productive at Arizona, impressing mainly as a sophomore with 37 tackles, 9.5 for loss, and 8 sacks before injuries limited his production as a junior: 23 tackles, 5 for loss, and 2 sacks. But he bounced back as a senior, recording 47 tackles, 10 for loss, and 6.5 sacks.

UPDATE: Chris Russell of ESPN 980 in Washington tweets that Reed is beginning a two-day visit with the Redskins today, conflicting with PFT’s source. PFT visits tracker page indicates Reed isn’t scheduled to visit the Redskins until Friday, April 8.
