Oh yeah he’s not Clark.
I will say in Reeds Defense (pun intended!) that his primary role isn’t Sack focused. Many sacks from iDL are the result of good pressure from the Edge and good CB play. Reed initially eats blocks and stops up the A-B gaps clogging Running lanes. Many of his Sacks are an indirect result of him not giving up though and finishing what the other boys started. Which is commendable.
The Packers current Roster is BOTH a top 12 Pass Rush and Pass Coverage or better, imo. That could improve slightly based on our drafting help. Also being paired with upper echelon players like Kenny Clark will eventually pay dividends.
We don’t know the future, but I do believe we are 1 of about a half dozen teams that can enable Reed to thrive. A few more teams than that are such good D fronts that Reed wouldn’t make the cut, yet we had a glaring hole with his name on it.
I noticed 1 more thing from his film. Reed is as much a fan of the Offense as we are. He seems to feed off the energy of the Offense making big plays while he cheers from the sideline and he’s often seen on his feet motivating those around him He uses those emotions to inspire his teammates. By doing so I think he unknowingly inspires himself. That’s why I called him “Big Mike”
