1. Reagor can develop playing alongside Jackson, Jeffery

No matter which wide receiver the Eagles ended up taking in the draft, whether it was in the first round or later on, the opportunity was always going to be there to benefit from playing alongside Jackson and Jeffery.

Despite how things turned out last season for the veterans due to injuries, there is no denying that both Jackson and Jeffery have been considered top wideouts in the league at some point during their careers.

The plan for 2020 surrounding the Eagles is to obviously have both players return to their dominant forms in the passing games, but even if things are slow at the beginning, Reagor should still benefit from becoming teammates with the two veterans.

Both Jackson and Jeffery have the necessary experience to help the transition become much easier for Reagor to deal with since the long-term goal in Philadelphia is to obviously see the TCU star become a top target in the passing game at some point down the road.

Better yet, if the presence of Jackson and Jeffery helped bring out the best in Reagor right away as a rookie, this would be the best-case scenario for the Eagles in their attempt to extend that playoff streak to four seasons in a row.
