The Philadelphia Eagles brought on some help at wide receiver during the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft with Jalen Reagor.

Leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft, it was safe to assume the Philadelphia Eagles were going to focus on the wide receiver early on, and even though Justin Jefferson was still on the board, Jalen Reagor was still a solid pick at No. 21.

Before Philadelphia’s rivals in the Dallas Cowboys made the surprise decision to go with Oklahoma star wideout CeeDee Lamb at No. 17, this seemed to be the direction the Eagles were originally heading with all the stars aligning.

Plenty of fans certainly felt disappointed over what took place, but also when looking at the impressive career put together by Reagor at TCU, there is plenty of reasons to be excited about this selection.

Plus, when taking into consideration that Jefferson was still on the board at the time when Philadelphia was on the clock, this seems like a pretty clear sign that Reagor was the one Howie Roseman and company were targeting all along.

Just like every other rookie making the transition to the NFL from college, Reagor still has plenty to prove before the Eagles and their fans can determine this was the right pick in the first round for 2020.

But since every new rookie deserves the chance to prove themselves worthy, here are three reasons Eagles fans should be excited about their new beloved wideout, and love the selection by Philadelphia for Reagor.

Even if the Eagles need to be a little patient at first with the young wideout, in the long run, this pick has all sorts of potential for the City of Brotherly Love.
