Draft Scout Caraun Reid News
09/04/14 - DT Caraun Reid was limited in Thursday's practice with a shoulder injury.
05/13/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: DETROIT LIONS: Round 5/158 -- Caraun Reid, DT, 6-2, 302, Princeton...The Lions see the Ivy League defensive player of the year as a developmental player but one with great upside. They had success drafting a similar defensive tackle from a smaller program a couple of years ago -- Sammie Hill of Stillman College. Reid is going to need a year to gain weight and strength, but his football skill set is NFL-ready. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 5/158 - Caraun Reid, DT, 6-2, 302, Princeton...The Ivy League defensive player of the year, the Lions see him as another developmental player but one with great upside. They had success drafting a similar defensive tackle from a smaller program a couple of years ago - Sammie Hill. He is going to need a year to gain weight and strength, but his football skill set is NFL ready. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 92/10. Caraun Reid, DT, Princeton, 6-2, 302, 4.89, 3...Reid has a square, well-built frame and showed constant improvement with pass rush technique, flashing an effective swim, rip and even a bull rush, albeit against lesser talent. Great worker, not just because of Princeton, but his father is a bishop, school principal and psychologist and mother is a doctor, minister and licensed educator. Frankly: The Princeton floodgates are opening to the NFL with Reid now a viable prospect after defensive end Mike Catapano became the school's first drafted player in 12 years when Kansas City took him in the seventh round of the last draft. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - Five players who should be on Detroit's draft radar...DT Caraun Reid, Princeton: With Nick Fairley set to hit free agency, the Lions can stay one step ahead by drafting interior depth in this class, similar to what they did a year ago at defensive end. And in the third round, Reid is a player who will be attractive to odd and even defensive fronts with his ability to play inside and outside. He was a no-name 250-pound recruit out of the Bronx five years ago, but picked up football and developed each year at Princeton. Reid is a filled-out, nimble athlete with impressive feet and get-off quickness for an interior player, staying energetic and motivated on and off the field. He is a well-rounded individual and dedicates himself in the film room, taking pride in his craft and the desire to improve. Reid is likely a top-100 player and in the third round, might be the top defensive tackle option on the board for the Lions. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
