NFL draft hopeful raves about Jalen Reagor

NFL draft hopeful Tre Brown has played cornerback at Oklahoma for the last four seasons and has gone against some great college receivers.

But one name came to mind first when asked which receivers gave him the toughest competition.

“I like that guy Jalen Reagor over there. He had it all,” Brown said on the 2 for 1 Drafts podcast with PFF’s Austin Gayle and Mike Renner.

“The guy was physical, the guy was fast, the guy can jump. He can play any position on the field as you (saw) if you watched his tape. Man, he was just a competitive guy. He also played with a chip on his shoulder, along with Tyler Wallace (Oklahoma State) and also Ja’Marr Chase (LSU), he was also a pretty good, physical guy. But Jalen Reagor was that guy.”

Brown is considered to be a mid- to late-round pick later this month after an impressive pro day in Norman.

But playing for Oklahoma meant playing against some of college football’s best receivers, so it’s interesting that Reagor’s name came to mind first, especially because the Eagles’ 2020 first-round pick didn’t have a ton of success against Oklahoma.

During his career at TCU, Reagor faced the Sooners four times. In those four games, he had 5 catches for 78 yards and 2 touchdowns. But clearly Brown saw something in Reagor.

The Eagles took Reagor with the No. 21 pick in last year’s draft and it was a disappointing season for the former Horned Frog. He dealt with several injuries and when he was on the field didn’t live up to expectations. Reagor ended up playing in 11 games and had 31 catches for 396 yards and 1 touchdown.

It wasn’t a great season but Brown thinks better things are coming for Reagor.

“Of course,” he said.
