With the new week comes more updated draft boards and player rankings, and two wide receivers in particular are coming off solid showings in TCU’s Jalen Reagor and South Carolina’s Bryan Edwards.
Reagor, a 5-foot-11, 195 pound junior, had his best outing of the season with seven catches for 128 yards vs. Oklahoma State. Reagor has had a bit of a down season thus far, with 32 catches for 454 yards and four touchdown receptions. And there are some media reports where scouts have voiced their concern with Reagor’s ability to transition to the NFL.
Still, many project him as a potential first-round pick, simply because of his speed and playmaking ability. WalterFootball, for example, still has Reagor as the fourth-ranked wide receiver in an otherwise loaded WR class.
Reagor is CBS Sports’ No. 5 wide receiver in Chris Trapasso’s latest report. “After a slow start to the season, Reagor has really flashed his full skill set the past two weeks,” Trapasso writes.
Meanwhile, Edwards had a whopping 14 (!!) catches for 139 yards and one TD against Vanderbilt, giving the 6-foot-3, 215 pound senior 62 catches for 726 yards and 5 TD receptions this season.
“What I love about Edwards — beyond his immaculate ball skills — is that South Carolina uses their 6-foot-3, 215-pound wideout in the quick game often, which speaks to his smoothness as an athlete,” writes Trapasso, who ranks Edwards as his No. 8 receiver.
