Jalen Reagor 2020 NFL Draft Profile
2020 NFL Draft
It’s a loaded draft class at wide receiver and Jalen Reagor is one of the many good options that the team looks at. Coming out of high school, Reagor was a four star recruit in the class of 2017. Reagor was the 13th ranked recruit wide receiver in that class.
College Career: Reagor played his college football with the TCU Horned Frogs and it didn’t take long after he stepped on campus to have a big impact.
As a Freshman in 2017 Reagor played in all 14 games catching 33 passes for 576 yards and eight touchdowns. 2018 was Reagor’s best year with the Horned Frogs catching 72 passes for 1,067 yards and nine touchdowns.
In 2019 TCU had some quarterback issues, and his stats went down catching 43 passes for 611 yards and five touchdowns.
Pros: Reagor is a speedster that can use it in the open field or in tight spaces. Reagor does a great job of being crafty in tight spaces to get open. He also has good size that he uses to his advantage. When the ball is in the air, Reagor does a good job of adjusting to the ball and that will serve him well in the NFL. He can catch the deep ball and can be a threat to go the distance whenever he touches the ball.
He also can be lined up in the backfield and can have a role like Percy Harvin at the next level.
Cons: Like most wide receivers making the level jump, he can improve his route tree and he needs to get a little crisper with his route running. Reagor also at times lets the ball get all the way back to his body instead of catching it with his hands.
Projected Teams: The Indianapolis Colts need another big-time wide receiver to pair with T.Y. Hilton. Hilton has dealt with a lot of injuries, during his career, and Reagor could be a number one wideout in the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers are another team that needs another big-time wide receiver and Reagor would make a lot of sense late in the first round.
