The Road to the Draft: OL Jah Reid

THE ROAD TO THE DRAFT

Jah Reid, OT, Central Florida
6-foot-7, 327 pounds
Draft projection: Second to fourth round

Lowdown: An intriguing right-tackle prospect who started for 3 1-2 years. Reid came to college at 370 pounds but got into good shape as his career progressed. He started 41 games, including the last 33 straight. Scouts will have to decide if he can bend his knees well enough in the pros. He helped pave the way for a power running attack last season. UCF rushed for 191 yards a game and three players had at least 10 rushing TDs. UCF beat Georgia, 10-6, in the Liberty Bowl. Reid showed better-than-average quickness in the short-shuttle and three-cone drills. ESPN’s Mel Kiper has him going in the later half of the second round.
