My thoughts on Lions fifth round draft pick Caruan Reid

The Lions got good value with this pick. The Senior Bowl workouts I saw, Reid did flash as a pretty good player. He had back-to-back sacks in the game. He didn't seem overwhelmed as an Ivy Leaguer in a BCS world. The chatter about him was an injury he had (shoulder), and whether he regained his strength from it. But I didn't think he'd last past the third round. I could see Reid as part of the Lions' defensive line rotation at some point this season. It would not shock me if he plays right away. Easily the Lions' best pick beyond the second round so far.
