Reed, 22, was selected with the No. 49 overall pick last week and wound up lasting much longer than many anticipated. Reed was mentioned as a potential first-round pick, but the Seahawks managed to get him in round two, and should have a solid young defensive lineman to add to the middle of their defense.
According to OverTheCap.com, Reed receives a four-year contract worth $4,889,636 to go along with a signing bonus of $1,756,100.
During his two years at Alabama, Reed recorded 111 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, two sacks, a fumble recovery and seven pass defenses.
