Eric Reid started his LSU journey with a red shirt in 2010 but he would grow into one of the best players ever to grace the field for the Bayou Bengals. In 2011 he played sparingly as a backup safety but did get 1 INT and 2 Pass Defl that year. 2012 was the year that Tigers fans started to take notice of Reid. He started at SS all year and tallied 34 Solo Tackles, 16 Assisted Tackles, 7 TFL, 3 Pass Defl, and 1 FF. He did not get an interception but he was in store for a big boost in that category. In 2013 the LSU coaching staff realized that the best way to align their secondary was to move Eric to FS and allow him ample opportunities to cover the opponent's slot WR. This shift allowed Reid to showcase his one-on-one coverage abilities. He started every game and had a huge impact. His tackling numbers were down from the previous year but that is more of a result of not giving up as many catches as he had in 2012 and also playing deeper than at SS. He finished the year with 27 Solo Tackles, 13 Assisted Tackles, 2 TFL, 6 INT and 6 Pass Defl. With CB Brandon Anderson leaving early for the NFL draft, Reid and the coaching staff decided it would help the team most for him to move to CB for his senior season. It was a big responsibility going up against the other team's #1 WR but he proved to be up to the task. At the date of this publication (before the 2014 SEC Championship Game) Eric has notched 19 Solo Tackles, 8 Assisted Tackles, 4 TFL, 1 Sack, 8 INT, 9 Pass Defl, and 1 TD. He has made big plays all year long but the one that will stick in my mind is the pick-6 he had on Alabama's opening possession. That play set the tone for the rest of the day and ended up being the best play of the day during LSU's 23-15 win. Eric Reid is finishing his LSU career rated 92 OVR with his most impressive skills being 99 MCV, 99 ZCV, 99 PRC and 99 PUR. Being able to handle 3 different positions extremely well has been a huge asset to LSU during his time and he will surely be missed. I can't think of anyone better to represent LSU in the BCS Chaos Hall of Fame.
