Falcons to work out Brooks Reed today
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.
