An East Mississippi Community College transfer, Jarran Reed turned down Florida and Ole Miss in favor of Alabama. Reed’s stats include 111 tackles, a 2014 All-SEC honorable mention, 2015 Second-Team All-SEC honors as a senior, with 57 tackles the same season to boot. He’s proven to be unstoppable against Georgia and doesn’t have the worst reviews:
Reed occupies multiple blockers and plugs rushing lanes better than any interior lineman in this draft. He showed the ability to beat double- and triple-teams on multiple occasions at the Senior Bowl. Reed's pass-rushing skills leave a lot to be desired; he's not a threat to penetrate with first-step quickness and he shows a limited array of pass-rush moves. But he did improve in this area, registering eight QB hurries in his final season at Alabama - ESPN’s Todd McShay
Jarran Reed has much to celebrate beyond his becoming a Seahawk- he’s got a 2 week old daughter back at home.
Best of luck to Jarran Reed going forward with his new team!
