2020 Draft | Eagles select: Jalen Reagor (#21 ovr)

Recommended Posts

I really think JJAW is going to take a real step next season now that walch is gone. I'm excited to see what he and reagor look like.

5'11" 194 lbs, and faster than the 40 time he ran at the combine. Mid 4.3 - low 4.4 on tape. Also a 42 inch vertical

Exactly. He compared really well with Jeudy and Lamb at the combine. The height is probably the difference between a mid 1st and a late 1st.

Alshon will be on IR so it wont matter.

DeSean, Reagor, JJAW, Ward

Not exactly the best WR group in the world... Thank god for Wentz. Honestly though, if DJAX stays healthy he opens up everything but that's a huge IF.

From what I've read, he should be ready right around the time the season starts. 

Caveat being that the season is happening as scheduled.

He's bigger than Cooks, doesn't play as intense as Steve Smith though. Still, heck of an athlete. He has potential, just not sure how high he'll reach though.

Hence the "somewhere between"

Hes the only smaller receiver I can remember that excels on jump balls like Reagor

Not thrilled, not killed.

Pre-combine, I had Reagor ranked higher off videos.
I downgraded him a bit (late 1st to early 2nd) based on the combine.
I thought he looked faster.

He certainly has shakes and uses them to beat press.
He's also pretty fair at contested catches.

He is college-fast, but not NFL-fast based on the combine.
I worry about his size more in terms of weight than height.
I don't know how much muscle he could add and not get slower which would hurt him.
Also, that may affect his vertical.  That allows him to play bigger and on the outside.
But, if he can't add muscle, can he stay on the field?
I don't mean Tyreek Hill muscle, but enough to survive the rigors of the NFL and play like he can play.
The last thing the Eagles need is another Harold Jackson.  Remember him?  (62 catches, 3 between the hash marks)

 

Also, I'm loving the hate for JJAW.
His ceiling was always Eric Decker and he put up Eric Decker numbers.
As a #4 receiver, he got #4 work in practice.
- He takes the route one more step and Wentz throws the ball behind him one step on 4th-and-4.-
This just needs patience.
He may never be Decker, but he's not Kevin White, either.  Not yet.
He's a smart kid and knows what needs to be done.

 

And, Reagor is a lot like Hamler.
He's likely out.  Duvernay, too.
The next receiver taken will be bigger.
Mims, Higgins, Pittman, Claypool, Shenault, Gandy-Golden, Davis, Edwards, Coulter and Jefferson.
Jefferson, Edwards and Shenault are coming off injuries and may come at a value.
Edwards' timed speed gives him an advantage here.


This is going to get more interesting.

Of course it was the one high pick we were targeting in FFMD that I didn't to a uni swap for....not sure I want to bother.

Pro day numbers are always really high, but all of those are elite. 20 Yard Shuttle is the most impressive. Jalen, you don't need to be over 200, Just stay over 190 and it'll do. Give us all that speed and quickness.

What's the process entail? I'm genuinely curious.

depends really.

You can go all out and essentially paint it on top of the uniform.

Easiest way to do it is you take a photo of a guy who was on the team before that's in the same positioning / angles as the photo you have of Reagor.
So like for this I'd probably look at Nelly or anyone that wore #18 in the newer uniforms since those are his likely number choices..
You can kind of frankenstein multiple pics together to do this too.

For the helmet I'd essentially look for an eagles helmet on another player in the same angle and mesh it with Reagor's facemask. Since it's already black.

Then you just kinda clean it up. Maybe add a background from the Linc. 


Like for this I took a pic of Shady, changed the yellow pants to midnight green.
Whatever I did for the helmet I made it too complicated but had to get it done for our pick.

For mims I took stuff from Alshon, but really blended it in. Change the base uni he had to white from yellow and merged a lot of existing folds.
then decided to give him #13 (forgot #18 was available)

The shuttle isn't surprising.
That is what you can see on game tape.  It can't be faked.

It is the true 40 that is concerning.
There's a lot of film of him against guys who won't sniff the NFL.

He ain't a 4.2 guy, but if you think he's actually a 4.47 then your lying to yourself. He's mid to high 4.3 IMO. Level of competition is certainly not something to brag about, but he literally had dog crap throwing him the football last year.
