Less the 24 hours after the Philadelphia Eagles select Jalen Reagor with the 21st-overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, our thoughts immediately return to Alshon Jeffery.
How sweet it is. Less than 24 hours after hearing Jalen Reagor‘s name called by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on behalf of the Philadelphia Eagles, “Birds” fans are experiencing extreme joy and slight disappointment at the same time. For most of us, we got our wish. Philly adds a game changer to the wide receiver corps, but admittedly, it wasn’t the one most of us thought they’d add. If you pay attention to social media or mock drafts, many saw Justin Jefferson as the natural fit and thought the Eagles would move on him. Reagor and Jefferson may be compared to each other by Eagles fans for a while, but the more immediate question is this. What happens to Alshon Jeffery now?
He’s now the man with the most to lose on this Eagles roster, and as strange as it may sound, that can be said even though there are six guys on the team who have fewer odds of making the final 53-man roster than he does.
Oh, you don’t think that’s accurate, huh? Let’s look at this Eagles roster as it’s currently constructed and bounce a few ideas around.
