View Full Version : How Good is Reiff? How Early Can He Be Selected?

I'm really curious what the board thinks.

Seems to be solidified as a top 10 prospect. Might sneak into the top 5.

Top 15, not sure I'd go top 10 but I know a lot of people really like him.

I'd take him top 10, depending on medical and interviews I might take him before Kalil.

Reiff is, IMO, the most surefire NFL LT prospect in the draft. Kalil goes before Reiff only on the basis of upside.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Redskins grab him at 6 if the Manning rumors are true.

It depends on what happens at two. If St. Louis doesn't work out a trade, they could conceivably take Kalil. Minnesota could panic and draft Reiff at three. But let's say St. Louis does trade with someone. The top would likely be Luck, Griffin, Kalil, Claiborne, Blackmon (or switched). Then there is Washington and Jacksonville. I think one of those teams picks him. If he slips past there, I don't think he makes it past Kansas City at eleven.

So long story short, he could be taken as high as three and could fall all the way to eleven. But I think he is selected at six or seven.

On paper Reiff is an ideal left tackle prospect, but he never really impressed me very much when I watched Iowa. Reiff is very athletic with length and proper technique but he just seems to lack a killer instinct and can be overpowered. Probably projects as a solid long-term starter but never a stud and should go in the teens or early 20s but will probably end up being drafted in the top 10.

One thing that Reiff has on his resume that Kalil doesnt and that is playing against better competition from the DE position.

If you project the guy to be a blind side protector for the next 10 years then you can probably justify taking him just about anywhere but i would probably think top 5 is too much of a reach. As long as Martin and Adams are out there you have the luxury of trading down and not feel you have to reach for Reiff.
