Eric Reid - Mel Kiper's #1 Rookie week 1


Said he was hand picked by Head Coach Jim Harbaugh, and did a great job againts Rodgers. Honey Badger made #5 for the Cards.

1. Eric Reid, S, San Francisco 49ers
There are easier ways to find your way in the NFL than to line up at free safety on a day when Aaron Rodgers is the opposing quarterback, constantly using his eyes to try to get you not just on the wrong foot, but into the wrong zip code. But Reid held up extremely well to start his career. Only three passes were completed near him, he picked off one and had another called back on a penalty. He showed great closing speed when catches were made in front of him, and he finished with five tackles. He also looked good on special teams, an area I'm always looking at for rookies. If you didn't think Reid was the best this week, just remember the context -- first game, replacing a veteran in Dashon Goldson, and facing Rodgers. Reid stepped in and rose to the occasion in a game that had far more intensity than your typical Week 1 matchup. Remember, this is a guy the 49ers actually traded up for. So far, so good.

Reid was impressive to say the least in week 1.

It's better to be quiet than open your mouth and remove all doubt...

Yeah because the Saints obviously have the same support and talent around him as the 49ers.

No argument there. I was really impressed with the Saints defense last weekend.
