The Philadelphia Eagles made the move to draft TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. It was a move that the team was looking to make after finishing the 2019 season with very little wide receiver depth.
Following the move, Reagor took some time to speak out about what he will be bringing to the Eagles. Fans will love what he brings to the field right off the bat.
“I’m not an outside receiver, I’m not an inside receiver. I’m a receiver. I can line up anywhere… I’m 5”11, but I play like I’m 6”4. I’ll make an immediate impact.”
Reagor is going to step in and have a role immediately with the Eagles. The team allowed Nelson Agholor to leave in free agency for the Las Vegas Raiders. Philadelphia will likely slide the rookie right into that role.
Last season with the Horned Frogs, Reagor ended up catching 43 passes for 611 yards and five touchdowns. Back in 2018, he racked up 72 receptions for 1,061 yards and nine touchdowns. Those numbers show a bit of the potential that Reagor is bringing to the Eagles.
Adding more talent around Carson Wentz was an obvious priority for the Eagles this offseason. Many thought they would go with either Justin Jefferson or Denzel Mims, but the speed and playmaking that Reagor brings to the field will be a major boost.
Standing in at 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, Reagor will likely play inside. However, he is very adamant that he can play anywhere and the Eagles will likely utilize him in quite a few different roles.
All of that being said, this move will go down as a very important selection for the future of the Eagles’ offense. Reagor is going to be a big piece of the puzzle moving forward and he will become a fan favorite quickly.
