04/28/13 - Recruited as a quarterback, Reed red-shirted as a freshman and played at various spots in 2010 before finding a home at tight end in 2011. Over the past two seasons, the 6-3, 243-pound Reed caught 73 passes for 866 yards and five touchdowns, but he still didn't expect to go to Washington, which has Davis, a starter in 2011 and 2012, Logan Paulsen, a fill-in regular after Davis tore his left Achilles in Week 7 last year, and converted receiver Niles Paul back at tight end. "I hadn't had any contact with them at all," said the 22-year-old Reed. "I had no idea I was going to get picked by Washington. It was a big surprise to me."
Shanahan compared Reed to Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who starred at the spot for the Gators when Reed was red-shirting in 2009. "He has great ability to make people miss," Shanahan said. "We weren't necessarily looking for a tight end, but when he was there, we couldn't pass him up. We think he brings a lot to our football team that we didn't have, a guy that can act like a tight end but can run routes like a receiver. When you have four tight ends, you're flexible. You can put a lot of pressure on a defense. It gives you the ability to do things that normally an offense can't do and a defense has to prepare for." - The Sports Xchange

04/28/13 - Third-round pick Jordan Reed, who's much more of a receiver than a reliable blocker, was benched during the Sugar Bowl for a poor attitude, but the tight end is thrilled to be a Redskin. "I'm so excited," Reed said. "I catch the ball well. I run good routes. I'm a hard worker." - The Sports Xchange

02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Tale of the tape: With scouts having seen most of the top prospects "on the hoof" over the fall and getting a second look at them on the "catwalk" before senior all-star games, the official measuring of heights, weight, hand and arms conducted during the combine is only occasionally newsworthy ... except when it comes to underclassmen, whom scouts often haven't seen up close yet.
One such underclassmen scouts are eager to get accurate measurements on is Florida's Jordan Reed. Possessing a similar blend of overall athleticism as former Florida star Aaron Hernandez, Reed could wind up with an even higher draft-day grade than New England Patriots' standout. To do so, however, he'll need to prove that he's all of the 6-3, 243 pounds the Gators officially listed him as. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
