2020 NFL Draft Profile: Jalen Reagor

Jalen Reagor is one of the wide receiver prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft class who cannot be evaluated solely on his numbers. His production in 2019 declined compared to the previous season, but inconsistent quarterback play can be attributed to that. Instead, teams will notice Reagor's speed and athleticism on display whenever they watch film on him. He's far from a finished product, but in the right situation, he could turn into one of the league's most dangerous playmakers.

Weight: 190

Strong Points

An explosive mover and one of the fastest players in this draft class, Reagor had a “down year” in 2019 that was more a product of poor quarterback play than his ability. He added more polish to his game the last two seasons, showing a better understanding of leveraging defensive backs as a route runner and creating separation with some serious quickness and burst getting in and out of cuts. He also does a nice job with some subtle hand-fighting when he gets downfield, something that undersized receivers tend to get away with in the NFL.

Weak Points

He has to do a better job at the catch point, where 50/50 balls too often stay 50/50. His lack of size might be exacerbated at the next level. His ball skills are questionable, as he has a habit of letting it get into his frame.

Summary

There’s work to do, but Reagor profiles as a dangerous slot receiver who can play the boundary as well. If a team can live with inconsistency, he’ll make up for it with some big plays.
