Anthony Reddick
6-0/210 Miami FL
4.54 Senior

Pros: A capable run stopper that does a good job coming up and delivering hit. He's comfortable working in the box and can make plays in pursuit. He is a good tackler that rarely misses in the open field. Can match up with tight ends in coverage. Shows on-field leadership potential.

Cons: Lacks awareness and instincts in coverage. Late playing the deep ball. Has average hips. Not a huge hitter. Will take some poor angles to the ball. Durability is a concern.

Overview: Reddick is a capable run stopper that doesn't make plays in coverage. Started at both safety spots for Hurricanes. Tore ACLs in both knees causing him to miss all of 2005 and 2007 seasons. Missed 2 games in 2006 due to ankle injury and 5 others because of suspension stemming from the infamous brawl with Florida International that year.

NFL Forecast: He can get by in coverage, but isn't going to be the guy that is making plays. The key will be developing him to a level where he's no longer making mistakes. Has starter potential and could potentially play either safety spot, although right now he's probably a better fit as a strong safety. At the least, he should be a solid reserve player that can potentially impact on special teams. Will need some polish in coverage to reach that starting potential, but I think he'll get there eventually. Probably a player that won't do much during the span of his first contract, but could become a capable starter four or five years into his career.

ATL Forecast: Reddick projects better as a backup and valuable depth player than a starter in Atlanta. He could help on special teams and provide nice depth at strong safety. But probably not really an option to secure that position long term. Probably better off developing him as a reserve behind Coleman at free safety. Although long-term probably not going to be as good a free safety as he can be a strong safety. The potential to play both spots however will make him a more valuable reserve player.

Value: Reddick would make a nice late round pick. I'd probably target him in the sixth round.
