NFL Mock Draft 2016: Latest rumors and projections

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Jarran Reed, DL, Alabama

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Alabama

Domata Peko isn’t getting any younger, and is nowhere near the player he once was. The Bengals need to bring in his replacement, and Reed could very well be that player.

Many people may not notice Reed during Alabama games, but those really watching for pro potential do. He’s a player that will do whatever is asked of him, do it well and be a consistent presence on the defensive line. Playing alongside an already dominant defensive line in Cincinnati could do wonders for Reed’s NFL career.
