2. Can we say 100 touches is reasonable? What about a minimum of 1,000 all-purpose yards?
If Reagor was to touch the ball six times a game, that would obviously slate him at about 96 total touches for the regular season. That’s reasonable, and with his versatility, it’s also safe to assume that Philly will experiment with creative ways to help get him the ball.
With his body type, he may not be the guy that you trot out for kickoffs, but he’d, no doubt make an exceptional punt returner. He shined in that role with the TCU Horned Frogs as a collegiate standout, fielding 15 punts a season ago and racking up 312 return yards and two touchdowns in the process.
Where Reagor varies from Justin Jefferson, a guy many Eagles fans wanted, is Jefferson is primarily a slot option while Reagor can play both inside and outside.
With Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, senior offensive assistant Rich Scangarello, and senior offensive consultant Marty Mornhinweg cooking up the game plan weekly (and with Reagor finding his way into the starting lineup early), a mixture of offensive snaps, creative ways to get Reagor the ball, and seeing a few teams on the schedule that have a tendency to fall asleep at the defensive controls looks like a nice mixture that should allow Philly’s rookie to touch the ball close to 100 times as a rookie and wind up with something in the ballpark of 1,000 all-purpose yards.
