2. Reagor can be used in multiple ways

Similar to Jackson, one of the most exciting factors surrounding the addition of Reagor is how he can be used in more than one way outside of wide receiver.

As his time at TCU showed, Reagor has proven to be effective with trick rushing plays on offense along with being a returner in special teams.

This may not sound like the biggest deal in the world since plenty of other players across the league are capable of doing the same, but if Reagor finds a way to be productive in all three categories, it could very well increase his odds to taking home Rookie of the Year honors.

Between Jackson getting up there in age along with Darren Sproles recently retiring after this past season, the offseason made it clear the Eagles were in need of some extra help in these areas.

Once again, there were plenty of Philadelphia fans upset over the team’s decision to go with Reagor in the first round over other certain players such as Jefferson.

But with the reminder of Reagor capable of being used in multiple ways, this should help some of the critics feel better about the selection, especially if the production for the rookie turns out to be better than expected.
