Dynasty & Redraft: WR Jalen Reagor, Eagles

Recommended Posts

Quote

TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor announced Monday that he will forego his final season of eligibility and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

Reagor (5'11/195) has been one of the more dynamic talents in college football in recent years, due to his big-play ability as both a receiver and a return man. This season the junior wide receiver caught 43 passes for 611 yards and five touchdowns, while also accounting for 312 punt return yards and two touchdowns on 16 attempts. WalterFootball.com draft analyst Charlie Campbell wrote during the offseason that Reagor has strides to make as a route runner, but the speed and big-play ability cannot be ignored. Pro Football Network draft analyst Tony Pauline was more complimentary of Reagor's route running ability, and in early November he wrote that the speedy receiver could be a Day 1 draft pick.

Handicapped by a crap offensive coordinator and freshmen QB this year.

Guy can ball when given the chance.

This year did him no favors in draft stock.

Loved watching you play Mr Reagor and understand bigger better things ahead

The Athletic's Dane Brugler is impressed with TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor's "ability to shift gears in order to leverage routes to open passing windows."

"His varying bursts of speed creates little wasted motion in his breaks and allows him to uncover," Brugler writes of the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Reagor. The analyst sees the junior's size as what will most be nitpicked during the evaluating process, but believes that Reagor can make up for this at least by degrees with improvements in his play finishes, noting that he posted a drop-rate of 6.8% last season -- not horrendous, but little tweaks in concentration could go a long ways. Reagor is an athletic dynamo capable of a sub-4.30-second 40-yard dash and a 380-pound bench press. Beyond the athleticism, what impresses us most is that he somehow managed to post a 72-1061-9 receiving line in TCU's dreadful passing offense last season. Reagor is just that good.

TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor cracked The Athletic's Bruce Feldman's "Freaks List."

You ready for this? Reagor (5'11/195) runs a 4.29-second 40-yard dash, squats 620 pounds, benches 380 pounds, and power cleans 380 pounds. What?!? But that's not overly surprising if you've seen him play. Put simply, Reagor just runs, cuts, and jumps at a different rate as everyone else on the field. Reagor should, at least, be a vertical threat in the NFL with the potential to be a team's WR2 or even WR1 with some more development. Last year, Reagor posted a 72-1,061-9 receiving line despite less than ideal quarterback play.

Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports believes that TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor could be a fit for the Green Bay Packers.

It's weird calling wide receiver a need for the Packers considering how many star players they've had the position over the years -- and they do have Davante Adams, still -- but the rest of the group doesn't provide many answers. "Reagor is exceptionally explosive on the field," writes Trapasso. "He separates at all levels and racks up yards after the catch with ease." He also notes Reagor's abilities to make plays up top because of his leaping ability. If Reagor impresses -- and he enters the draft -- this fit does make sense. On paper, anyway.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling has TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor as a top-50 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Reagor (5'11/195) is one of the fastest receivers in the country -- he reportedly ran a 4.32 forty this offseason -- and he'll be one of the biggest playmakers as well. Last year, Reagor eclipsed 1,000 yards as a sophomore by recording 11 plays of 25+ yards. The junior will be a threat to in the intermediate and deep parts of the field once again, but he can also make a defender miss on short passes. If he plays stronger, Reagor will be a Round 2 candidate next draft.

Pro Football Focus's Mike Renner lists TCU junior WR Jalen Reagor among the top 2020 NFL Draft prospects to watch.

Reagor was able to make plays in 2018 to the tune of a 72/1,061/9 line, and that's despite the horrific quarterback play of the Horned Frogs. "He combines elite speed (27 catches of 15-plus yards) with elusiveness (11 broken tackles on 71 catches) and physicality at the catch point (15-of-31 on contested catches)," writes Renner. He also notes that last number is even more impressive considering his 5-foot-11 height. He did have surgery this offseason, but assuming he's healthy, this should be among the best wideouts in the 2019 class.

kind of ,like DJ Moore... still have to win on the outside to be a WR1

He's basically this years Parris Campbell with the caveat that Reagor himself plays wayyyyy bigger than Campbell ever did.  

If you want to bet on 1 guy to rise in the process, this is the guy.  Should be viewed highly already, somehow he isn't, by the end of it all, he will be.

Like this guy a lot

Campbell hasn't busted at all yet.  First year sure, but there were a lot of reasons for that.  I'm just comparing their rises to easily be in 1st round conversation for rookie drafts.  Reagor should be in that conversation already, sometimes he isn't, but after the combine there will be no doubt he's there.

Pro Football Focus ranks TCU WR Jalen Reagor sixth among wideouts in the 2020 NFL Draft class.

Reagor (5'11/195) was limited to just 43 catches for 611 yards and five touchdowns, but it's definitely fair to say that the wideout was limited by the TCU system and inconsistent -- at best -- quarterback play. In fact, PFF notes that he had the fourth highest percentage of off-target passes in 2019. The previous year, he was over the thousand-yard mark, and he has some of the best speed in this class. This is a loaded wideout class, but Reagor has a real chance of being a Day 1 pick come April.

His key metrics are very strong unlike Parris. Jalen broke out at 18 years old and was well above average in relative production. Campbell was below average in both of those areas.

For a small player with short arms he’s really good at high pointing the ball. He either has big time hops or instincts, or both.

Kelley at RotoUnderworld seems to love this guy and have him ranked right along side Jeudy. By the time our drafts roll around I could see a big four of Lamb, Jeudy, Reagor and Shenault being quite close. Might be great value in the end  of round one if either of the last two make it that far

Early on, it looks like Reagor, Ruggs, Claypool and DPJ are the freaks at the combine.

People expected Reagor to blow up the combine, so this is the time of year that we need to police our own perceptions and make sure that we aren't double-counting his athleticism in his value. At least that's always the thought process I try to follow to keep my expectations and values in check. Doesn't always prevent impulse buys of course

Mixed bag for him. Jumps exceeded my expectations but a little disappointing on the 40. I think he plays faster and he's plenty fast enough for his frame. I'm not any more high or low on him then I was pre-combine.

OBJ is a fairly popular comp for Reagor from his biggest fans, and that 40 doesn't disqualify it. The jumps are more important to me, in terms of his athleticism. I did expect a faster 40.

Rotoworld take:

Quote

TCU WR Jalen Reagor recorded a vertical jump of 42 inches and a broad jump of 138 inches at the NFL Scouting Combine.

If it weren't for Donovan Peoples-Jones, Reagor would have posted the top jump marks on both fronts (tied with Henry Ruggs on the vert). As is, a silver jumping medal for the TCU standout. We expect a sharp 40-yard dash upcoming. Reagor (5'11/206) profiles as a likely Day 2 selection for April's draft (though we wouldn't completely rule out Day 1).

I wanted to comp him to Tyreek Hill, not lower on him but feel need to come off that comp a little.

PFF compared him to Derrick Mason. I think a team looking at him late in round 1, would be more than happy with that.

True but I kept hearing people comp Ruggs to Tyreek and he was too lean to me. I thought Reagor would run low 4.3's and with his build at least be a closer comp.

TCU WR Jalen Reagor ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Reagor (5'11/206) outright crushed his jumps earlier on Thursday, logging a 42-inch vertical jump and 138-inch broad jump, both close to the top marks at his position in this year's class. His 40-yard dash was not nearly as impressive, especially given that Reagor reportedly ran the sprint in 4.29 seconds hand-timed during his collegiate career with the Horned Frogs. We wouldn't overreact to the 4.47s mark he ran on Thursday, but at the very least, it's not ideal.

Austin Gayle@PFF_AustinGayle

TCU's Jalen Reagor recorded a 42" vertical and an 11'6" broad jump at 5-foot-11, 206 pounds... explosive would be an understatement, dude is a rocket

 

Thomas@thomasmpk78

Solid also! Usually receivers that explosive and at his size are lightweights.

Meet TCU’s Jalen Reagor

Quote

 

...can do multiple things make life hard on a defense.

Reagor is that kind of player. At 5-10, 206, he looks like a cross between a slot receiver and a running back (Duke Johnson is listed at 5-9, 210), but he has 4.2 speed.

I played running back, I played a little bit of quarterback and I’m a return specialist, so I can pretty much do it all,” Reagor said Tuesday at the combine.

“My versatility (is a strong point). I mean my size, I’m a very quick receiver, very fast. You can use me anywhere on the field. Put me in the backfield and just do everything. And when you can do everything in the NFL, I mean, you’re pretty valuable.”

...His 20.8-yards per punt return was second in the nation last season. He returned one punt for a touchdown, and also returned a handful of kickoffs each of his three seasons at TCU.

When I asked Reagor Tuesday what makes him a good punt returner, he said: “You can be as close as you want to me, as (close) as this mic, and I’ll probably make you miss. Being a returner is about making the first guy miss.”

 

Here’s how TCU’s Jalen Reagor performed at the NFL Combine
 

Quote

 

TCU star Jalen Reagor had the NFL Draft world buzzing Thursday when he posted a 42-inch vertical jump and an 11-feet, 6-inch broad jump at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. But his 40-yard dash times turned out to be disappointing.

Reagor, who had hoped to run in the 4.3-second range, was clocked at 4.47 seconds on his first run and 4.5 seconds on his second.

“I wouldn’t say he hurt himself, but he didn’t help himself,” one NFL Draft analyst said about Reagor’s performance at the combine. “His jump kind of equaled the 40-yard runs out. Ridiculous explosion.”

In an instance like this, I have ZERO problems with that 40 time, honestly think too much can be made of these times unless they are hovering towards downright slow

Feel the same way.  I guess because expectations were so high for his 40 people are down but can't recall seeing people more disappointed about a rocked up 206 pound WR running a 4.47 especially when his jumps.

I'll say this. If someone proposed me a bet before the combine, and they let me watch every tape of Reagor and Claypool, and that bet was a million dollars or my life that Claypool would beat Reagor in the 40 I'd be dead today.

Can't help but think of Arians quote from the other day. "You might run a 4.3 [at the combine], but your tape says you're 4.6. You might run a 4.6, but your tape says you're 4.4. The tape don't lie. The combine lies. You can fall in love at the combine and get your ### broke,"

7.31 is an awful slow time. LINK

Bear in mind that DK Metcalf ran 7.38 last year. Dalvin Cook ran a 7.27 as some other examples of high profile players with poor 3 cone times.

Where I am at with that is I think players who post really good 3 cone times, those players deserve an extra look, but really good football players who post poor 3 cone times, I am mostly going to ignore that if I think the player has good change of direction ability on the field.

3 cone is not predictive for WR anyways. It is slightly predictive for the RB position.
