Injuries:

History: Four-star prospect from Waxahachie, TX. Played football at Waxahachie High School for former NFL QB Jon Kitna. Won a gold medal in the long jump at the 2017 Texas High School state meet. His father, played 9 years in the NFL, winning Super Bowl XLI with the Colts.

Strengths: Incredible athlete, shined at the combine. Track star speed, is an absolute blazer. Well built body. Has shown the ability to adjust to some poorly thrown balls, which were a good amount throughout his career. Although route tree is limited, he does a good job, specifically accelerating out of his breaks. Dangerous in open space, need to get the ball in his hands on manufactured touches. NFL bloodlines.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal length and size to be a X receiver. Has had some drops throughout his career. Needs to be stronger at the catch point. Isn’t going to break many tackles when he has the rock. Not a physical player at all. Doesn’t offer much in the run game. Wasn’t really moved around in the film I watched.

Overview: Athletic freak who is a natural burner, with tremendous upside. I’m a big fan of Reagor, in the right scheme and usage. He was misused at TCU and was the victim of poor QB play. He is an underrated route runner and is better in contested catch situations than you’d expect out of a true Y receiver. He might have the highest upside of the Tier 2 WRs in this draft.

Evaluation based on games. OK St. 19′, WVU 18′, BAY 19
