What the Analysts Say
Spotty quarterback play helped cause a production drop, but his focus and competitiveness also seemed spotty at times. Reagor is a smooth athlete with blazing speed who has more playmaking talent than receiver skill and play-callers need to account for that when determining how to utilize him. He’s electric with the ball in his hands so getting it to him quickly rather than asking him to consistently make plays for himself as a ball-winner could be crucial. When 2019 is balanced against his 2018, the grade and projection begin to climb with a versatile receiver who’s able to spice the offensive gumbo.- Lance Zierlein, NFL Network

Reagor fits great on an Eagles team that desperately needed help at wide receiver. Reagor’s ability to return punts and kicks gives him another tool in his toolbox.
The Eagles may have taken Reagor a little early, but the value is definitely there.
