With the 21st pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select Jalen Reagor, wide receiver out of TCU. With LSU's Justin Jefferson still available, they passed up on the unanimous best available receiver for someone who went up against and is surrounded by much worse talent than Jefferson was.
The fact that there was a receiver that was a better fit available and they ended up with Reagor is unacceptable. They could have traded up for CeeDee Lamb, but sat back and watched the Cowboys troll them and select the star receiver from Oklahoma.
There is no saving grace in this pick -- he does not have good size. He seems like the most average receiver they could have picked, and this reminds me too much of the Nelson Agholor selection in 2015. There are not many receivers with Reagor's skillset that are worth a first-round pick. I know that a lot of scouts see really high upside with Reagor, but the fact of the matter is he is just a big question at a position the Eagles already have a big question mark.
This pick may truly be the beginning of the end for Howie Roseman as the Eagles GM. Either that or I am going to look like an idiot and Howie a genius. I was very big on selecting a wide receiver as the first pick for the Eagles, but now I wish that they would have went with a linebacker, safety, or cornerback.
Please prove us wrong Jalen, or Howie Roseman might soon be packing his bags and cleaning out his office.
