The Seahawks picked up a special teams contributor and potential nickel/ slot db in Jerrick Reed II. The 5’10 196 Reed II is undersized but versatile, athletic, and full of heart. He like all the players the Seahawks drafted has a chip on his should and aiming to prove he belongs.
Reed II started every game last in 2022 and 2021. Last year he had a career-high 94 tackles, (50 solo), 44 assists, and 11 pass defense.
WHY THIS MAKES SENSE
The Seahawks are big on special teams and Reed II could find his way on the field as a special teams contributor. During his media call with the media, Reed II was asked which special teams unit he played in college. His answer was all of them. It will be a tough go for Reed II to find time on the field but it is not an impossibility. He has good football IQ, and an exceptional route reader, and is patient when monitoring routes according to NFL.Com
