Reed Had 'No Idea' Redskins Were Interested

Posted Apr 26, 2013

Redskins third-round draft pick TE Jordan Reed said he didn't meet with the Washington Redskins leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, but was blessed to be selected.

For NFL hopefuls, the pre-draft process is equivalent to interviewing simultaneously with 32 of the world's top companies and waiting for the first call back.

Sometimes the prospect gets an inclination that a team is interested, as cornerback David Amerson did with the Washington Redskins.

Alternatively, sometimes prospects have no idea a team is interested, as was the case with third-round (85th overall) tight end Jordan Reed.

"I have not had any contact whatsoever with the Redskins," Reed told the media during his introductory conference call. "I had no idea I was getting picked by Washington.

"It was a big surprise to me and I am just so excited."

Reed brings good size (6-3, 243 pounds) and speed (4.72 40) to the Redskins tight end corps, a position that he transitioned to tight end from quarterback.

Despite playing only 25 collegiate games as a tight end, he said he had a good grasp on the nuances and responsibilities of the position.

"I started feeling comfortable last year. This is my second year at the position," he said. "Especially as I started taking more reps last season...I am committed to getting better and better each year."

Reed comes to the Redskins with good NFL pedigree, as he is the younger brother of Ravens receiver David Reed.

Like his older brother, he brings top speed that could make an immediate impact on special teams as he works to develop in the offense.

"I catch the ball well. I run good routes. I am a hard worker and I take pride in that," he said. "I am going to work on becoming a better blocker and all-around player."

Although he does not know much about the Washington Redskins system, he indicated that he will do his homework and looks forward to meeting with the coaching staff soon.

"This moment is incredible. I could not ask for a better situation," he said. "I am blessed."
