Kiper's 2018 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: Baker in the Big Apple?

Penn State defensive coordinator Brent Pry stated prior to the 2016 season that he believed the Lions had three starting corners   John Reid, Grant Haley and Christian Campbell. Reid and Haley were the primary starters last fall.

All three of those players are still with wholesale jerseys free shipping PSU but it appears the Lions' cornerback depth is going to be tested throughout 2017.

Junior corner John Reid, a returning starter who played his prep football at St. Joseph's in the Philadelphia area, will be out indefinitely with a knee injury, according to a Lions247 report. The injury could be season ending, per the report. Reid still has his redshirt season available.

A Penn State spokesperson had no comment on Reid's status when contacted by PennLive earlier today.

It's worth noting that Reid, who has 16 career starts at corner, was also the Lions' primary punt return man last season, cheap football jerseys averaging 7.5 yards on 22 attempts. He also had a long of 54 yards.

In Reid's absence, PSU would likely turn jerseys from china to Campbell, a senior to pair opposite Haley, another senior.
