Bio: 
Four-year starter who earned Second Team All-CAA honors and made 58 tackles with two interceptions, one forced fumble and two pass breakups in 2017. Posted 51 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble and one pass breakup as a junior. Named Second Team All-CAA and recorded 41 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup in 2015. Started nine games as a true freshman and made 37 tackles with three PBUs.
Pos: 
Nice-sized defensive back best facing the action. Physical, competes to break up throws and works hard to make plays against the run. Stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks, shows a burst of closing speed and competes to break up throws. Strong and physically beats down opponents to make plays.
Neg: 
Marginally productive against the pass. Slow out of his transition, does not get his head back around and does a lot of face guarding. Deep speed is a concern.
Analysis: 
Reaves possesses the physical skills and temperament to play in a zone system and should be an asset on special teams.
