Round 5 Pick 142 - CB D.J. Reed, Kansas State

5' 9" 188 lbs

Did somebody say that D.J. Reed was brought on to compete with K’Waun Williams for slot coverage?

If he does it won’t be because of his 5’9 frame. 

Reed’s athleticism is elite.  His timing, and reflexes are extraordinary as a player his size often is, but didn't he say he was a lock down corner? Don’t argue with him. He’s telling the truth, and he doesn’t care how tall the opposing receiver is. They are going to have hell trying to shake D.J. 

It’s going to be interesting to see how, and where the 49ers intend to try him out in camp.
