player. 872. . . . Jalen Reagor.

Jalen Reagor might be the closest thing to DeSean Jackson that this draft class has to offer. He’s a vertical threat who has the ability to take the top off a defense at any given time. His career average of 15.2 yards per catch reflects that.

Standing at five-foot-eleven and weighing in at 195 pounds, he is a bit undersized, but we’ve seen speedy wideouts get away with having a small frame throughout the years. Some scouts believe Reagor may be the fastest receiver in the draft, noting that members of the TCU Horned Frogs staff have recorded Reagor’s 40-yard-dash time at 4.29.

Regardless of his stature, Reagor still has a knack for making the spectacular catch and coming down with the ball when he’s contested.

On top of his freakish athletic ability at wideout, Reagor also displayed potential in the return game. This past season, he averaged just over 20 yards per punt return, taking one to the house in the process. With Darren Sproles‘ retirement, the Birds will be in need of someone who can fill his role in the return game. Reagor could end up being that guy.

Keep an eye for this TCU product as a potential pick for Philly.
