Eagles draft Jalen Reagor

The Eagles land a Wide Receiver. With the 21st pick, they took Jalen Reagor from TCU. Reagor was a stud at TCU these past 2 seasons and looks to continue that at the next level in Philadelphia. Putting up over 14 yards a catch this season despite an overall lackluster season from the Horned Frogs Reagor was a bright light from all of it. His stats do not look well from the 2019 season but not very good quarterback play from TCU was the main cause of it.

Fans should be really excited about what Reagor brings to the table for the Eagles. He is great from all 3 levels and can be deadly in any aspect of the game. His acceleration is incredible and can get to fast speeds very quickly and can lose corners often with that. Another great ability of his is to high point the ball and bring it down in traffic and his elusiveness with the ball in the open field. 

While he is not talked about as much as the top 3 WR’s in the draft he is not much below them in terms of potential and is really exciting for the Eagles. I can see him contributing a lot right away for the birds and getting a lot of snaps working alongside Carson Wentz. His ability to be a 3 level player will be incredible for him and Wentz will have a field day on Offense with him and Desean Jackson.

He has a few minor weak points to keep an eye on but his positives heavily outweigh them. His work off the line of scrimmage can often be delayed by the press but some handwork can fix that problem for him. He is often abused early in his routes and can frustrate him but I think he is good enough to work through this and will be a great player for the Eagles and I am really excited to see him play in Midnight Green.
