Standout – Jalen Reagor
Anyone who followed the Eagles last year, or just paid attention to football, could see the struggles that the Philadelphia receiving corps went through last season. Almost every player the Eagles put on the field hobbled back with an injury. For that reason, it was essential that Philly invested in at least one wide receiver this offseason. With tons of opportunities available, Jalen Reagor could very well make a huge impact.
One of the fastest players entering the league this year, Reagor has big-play ability paired with being a deep threat that resembles the play of teammate DeSean Jackson. Despite a down season in 2019, Reagor’s 2018 campaign should be enough to demonstrate what he brings to the table.
As a sophomore in 2018, Reagor hauled in 72 receptions for 1,061 and nine touchdowns, but he didn’t stop there. TCU also used him in the running game, going for 170 yards on 13 carries with two more touchdowns.
It remains to be seen how Reagor will fit into the Philly scheme, but his skill set is intriguing for an offense that knows how to be creative and is also in dire need of playmaking wide receivers. He could end up like Tyreek Hill or be a hybrid player like Curtis Samuel. Regardless, he should have a very strong rookie season.
