I’ve always molded my game after Ed Reed even though he’s no longer playing that was who I grew up watching. I say him because of the ball hawking ability and Never was scared to come up and hit. Most of all his mental state always watching film knowing what’s coming at him before the ball was snapped. Everything I learned from him stuck with me making me the player I am today.
