Rookie Prospect: Jalen Reagor (WR)


Projected Round to Be Drafted:

Jalen Reagor is a tough guy to get a handle on when trying to figure out how others view him in terms of draft position. We have seen him ranked as a top five prospect all the way down to the fourteenth ranked in the class. With that said the consensus seems to have him projected as a day three, fourth round pick. We here at The Elite Fantasy disagree a bit with that after watching his play. For us, Jalen Reagor grades out to be a day two prospect who should go in the third round.


Attributes:

* Blazing Speed

* Return Game Weapon

* Wiggle

* Human Hiccup


Jalen Reagor has been given the nickname "The Human Hiccup" and watching the film above you can see why. Jalen has blazing speed and once he has the ball in his hands can make some nice plays with his sudden burst and ability to stop on a dime and make defenders miss, with that said he is very dangerous being used in jet sweeps. Jalen proved to be a very dangerous weapon in the return game for TCU and can bring that same big play ability to some NFL team as well, which will draw much interest come draft day.

Concerns:

* Doesn't Like Contact

* Run Blocking

* Catch Radius

* Raw Route Runner


Jalen does need to improve in a number of areas to be viewed as a top option at the position. Jalen doesn't like contact which is evident with his reluctance to go across the middle of the field to make catches. He doesn't like to get physical as a run blocker where he quickly gives up on blocks. His catch radius needs improvement as well. Jalen prefers to be more of an outside threat where he can run in a straight line. His route running is raw and needs to be developed more on the pro level. Jalen also lacks concentration on catching the ball in contested situations.

NFL Player Comp:

* Santonio Holmes


If your not familiar with Holmes go back and watch highlights and then watch highlights of Jalen and you will quickly see how similar their play style is.

Ideal Landing Spot:

* Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen would be an ideal fit with the Eagles as they need immediate help in that area. We think his blazing speed would pair very well with Carson Wentz's strong arm. If Reagor were to land in Philadelphia I feel we could have a very nice fantasy asset on our hands sooner rather than later.
