Okay, he looks like Clay Matthews, but can he play like him?

The Dark Horse: Brooks Reed

KC Chiefs fans may want to add another name to the list of possibilities at pick #21. Arizona DE/OLB Brooks Reed has seen his stock continue to rise ever since he put up fantastic numbers at the combine. Now in Todd McShay’s latest mock draft he has the Chiefs taking Reed at #21. Most “experts” would say this is too high for Reed and they may be right. However, as I pointed out in my last Armchair Addict post, Scott Pioli has some specific criteria he looks for in draft picks and Reed holds up to the list pretty well.

Experience? He was a three year starter. The Pac-10 isn’t the SEC, but he still faced some big time competition.

Leader? Not only a team captain, but known as a fiery on the field leader.

Character? I don’t have any “janitor” info, but most scouting reports say he is very smart, a hard worker, and a great leader.

Loves football? No question. I even read several places that he loves playing special teams.

So what do you think Addicts? Do you like Reed? Is #21 too high?

I’ll leave some links to his scouting reports after the break.
