Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Sun Belt honors as both a junior and a senior. Led South Alabama with 104 tackles, seven tackles for loss and three interceptions and tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles while adding 1.5 sacks and eight pass breakups in 2017 to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Led the team in pass breakups in both 2015 and 2016. Made 85 tackles (5.5 for loss) with two forced fumbles and seven PBUs as a junior. Posted 96 tackles (eight for loss), two interceptions, three forced fumbles and six pass breakups as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Versatile defensive back who can line up at cornerback or safety. Keeps the action in front of him, displays timing and anticipation and possesses an explosive closing burst. Moves well laterally and shows good speed to the sidelines. Plays faster than his 40 time and sells out to make plays. Sudden and explosive.
Neg: 
Not a big or stout safety. Lacks a second gear.
Analysis: 
Reaves possesses marginal size and speed but has solid ball skills and plays with a physical nature. He’s a potential dime back with value on special teams.
