Jalen Reagor is tired of hearing the Eagles reached for him
The Philadelphia Eagles have been desperately hurting at the wide receiver position for a long time, so they addressed it heavily in the 2020 NFL Draft, selecting three. Along with John Hightower and Quez Watkins on day-three of the draft, the Eagles used the 21st overall pick on TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor.
There have been many skeptics about the pick, one that this writer actually liked quite much. Reagor was picked over the likes of LSU’s Justin Jefferson, Clemson’s Tee Higgins, Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk, and Baylor’s Denzel Mims, which has caused an uproar from the national media, including Undisputed’s Skip Bayless.
Upon seeing the clip of Bayless blasting him as the selection at the 21st pick in the draft, Reagor responded on Twitter, with just a simple emoji of the okay symbol, while tagging Bayless. This tweet was pinned at the top of Reagor’s profile, but has since been deleted as he is seemingly out on a revenge tour against all those who have doubted him.
While Reagor did not run as fast as he had anticipated at the combine, his play speed is much quicker, and he still managed to post astounding numbers in his explosive drills such as the vertical and broad jump. While he may have had a bad start on the 40 yard dash that caused a slow time, he can straight up fly with the best of them.
After an underwhelming junior year at Texas Christian due to inconsistent quarterback play, Reagor’s production also took a hit, but his tape shows an explosive weapon who can win both underneath and over the top. A playmaker at all levels, the Eagles earned themselves a weapon by putting their faith in Reagor; now he is out to prove it.
