Joshua Blake Reed (born May 1, 1980 in Rayne, Louisiana) is an American football wide receiver who currently plays for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League. He was originally drafted by the Bills in the second round (36th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft. He played collegiately at Louisiana State.

At LSU in 2001, Reed was awarded the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's best receiver.

College career

While at LSU, Josh was one of the most productive receivers in college football. In only two years as a wide receiver (his freshman year he played running back for most of the season and he declared for the NFL draft after his junior season) he rewrote the SEC record books. He holds the SEC record for receiving yardage in a game (293 vs. Alabama in 2001) and season (1,740 in 2001). He also held the career receiving yardage record with 3,001 yards until 2002 when the record was broken by Georgia receiver Terrence Edwards. Reed also holds the SEC season record for receiving yardage per game (145.0 in 2001) and is second in the career receiving yardage per game (96.8).

At the 2002 NFL Combine, Reed ran the 40 yard dash in 4.54 seconds, had a vertical jump of 37 inches and ran the 10-yard shuttle in 3.96 seconds
