Jalen Reagor – Part 1 – College Evaluation

At 5’11” 195 lbs. Jalen Reagor packs a ton of talent in a smaller frame. Come combine time we could be talking about him as the fastest player in attendance, and he has the ability to break the mold of the sub-par TCU wide receivers that the league has seen recently.

Athletic Ability: 8.4/10

If Reagor doesn’t run in the low 4.3’s at the combine, we’d be surprised! He has a ton of athletic ability and it shows game in and out–plenty of times he’s burning opposing secondaries for big plays.

Toughness: 6.2/10

We saw a kid that fought hard every play. There were even games that he played most of it hurt after taking a big hit or landing wrong on a play, and that speaks to his toughness in a big way.

Hands: 7.1/10

TCU hasn’t had the best quarterback play in recent years, and that forced the receivers to have to make more highlight-reel style catches. Reagor was a big beneficiary in those times. He does a good job high-pointing the ball, but there are some concerns when he is making contested catches.

YAC (Yards After the Catch): 7.3/10

Watching the tape, we saw big play after big play. The tough thing is that when he is facing top-notch NFL talent, he will have to beat a lot more press coverages and still find a way to excel while being hit within the first five yards.

Route Running: 6.7/10

At TCU, Reagor wasn’t asked to run a dynamic route tree, often times doing a lot of deep plays on a regular basis. At the next level, he will have to step up his game, most likely from the slot or motioning around the formation.
