Reagor’s speed was on full display, and his ability to weave his way through traffic has shown fans that he has the ability to be a playmaker. The rookie also snagged a 34-yard reception from a fellow rookie, Jalen Hurts, the latter earns a spot on the studs list as well.
Stud: Jalen Hurts, quarterback.
