    Jeremy Reeves

    Reeves is a great athlete, and he hypes up his vertical making up for being 5'7" (listed on cyclones.com) but I can think of twice last night that another 2" in height or vertical wouldve helped tremendously. Our DBs held down the EIU receivers but I feel like UConn's WRs had a decent game against us. Is Reeves going to be able to hold down upcoming WR crews? I know OU is good, are any other future opponents going to cause similar problems as last night?

    Another 2 inches and he would be a NFL player. He would also be playing at Texas right now.

    Reeves just tried to catch the ball.. if he went up with 1 hand he would have broken up the passes.

    Re: Jeremy Reeves

    If teams want to throw jump balls at Reeves, I think that works out well for us in the end. He had a rough game last night, but the guy's a freaking ninja. He's been really close to intercepting multiple passes this year.

    Re: Jeremy Reeves

    Ya, he's got everything except the height needed. He has been a liability at times. However, it's going to be very rare where both of your CB's are able to lock down. You're almost always going to have one that can be exploited.

    Re: Jeremy Reeves

    Last night was the first night he really had a bad game, he has played well for the most part. Like mentioned before Two Inches taller he is at Texas. Plays hard, no complaints here. Those two PI calls were touchy to say the least...

    Broyles is only 6'0" or so isn't he? He might match up well with him.

    Re: Jeremy Reeves

    He will be fine, I'm not worried about him at all. Missed a few big ones last night that were just over his head but his overall coverage is great, and he is awesome at coming up and helping with the run. One of the most underrated guys on our team.

    I don't necessarily blame him, either. He thought he had a reasonable chance at making a play and he missed. I like the aggressive play, because if he comes down with that ball that's probably the nail in the coffin. Unfortunately he didn't have safety help, which probably should have factored into his decision.

    Exactly. Most people can reach about 4 inches higher if they go up with only one hand. For example I can't even come close to dunking a bball with two hands but I can throw it down with one hand.

    Reeves still has a chance to catch that ball even if he goes up with one hand. At his height, he needs to make sure he gets up as high as possible so he can at least knock the ball away.

    Re: Jeremy Reeves

    Call me crazy, but I think cover-wise Reeves is better than LJ. He is just a couple inches from being an NFL corner. He can stay with anyone that we have faced this year. Hopefully with safety help over the top, last night was just a hiccupp in his season.
    Also, didn't he record 10 tackles?

    Re: Jeremy Reeves

    Reeves is a great corner. The only reason he gets picked on so much is no one wants to throw at LJ. The tall receivers are a tough match up for him, but I feel like he holds his own just fine. For his size, he does a great job in run support too. If they keep throwing at him, he'll get his share of picks.

    I see what you're saying and agree with you. As far as staying with a guy and being on his hip at all times, Reeves may be better.
