Trevor Reid 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- One-year starter
- Scheme tendencies: Zone blocking scheme
- 2022 projected role: Starting LT
Pros: Trevor Reid appears to have good foot quickness combined with good overall length. Reid uses this combination in the run game to quickly get to the second level and cover up defenders. Reid’s athleticism allows Louisville to scheme up plays to get him in space on screen plays to block defenders in space. In his pass set, Reid uses this same athleticism to quickly get to his spot. Reid excels at beating defenders to a spot and being in position to take on edge rushers. Reid’s overall athletic traits are appealing because there are many different ways you can utilize him in space. As an OT, Reid has a high athletic upside that should have him on many NFL teams’ boards during this draft process.
Cons: Although Trevor Reid has a high athletic profile, there are parts of his game that definitely need improvement. Reid’s atheism allows him to get on defenders in the run game quickly but his lack of upper-body strength doesn’t allow him to sustain blocks. As a run blocker, Reid can only be asked to cover up defenders. His lack of upper-body strength also appears in pass protection. Although Reid can use his athleticism to beat defenders to a spot, he doesn’t have the strength in his hands to sustain blocks and anchor on defenders. When he shoots his hands, they are easily knocked away by defenders. Reid is a good athlete, but in order to be an effective blocker, he needs to improve his upper-body strength.
