NFL Draft Rumors: Reagor, WRs, Dantzler

Despite his lack of size, Jalen Reagor is making a name for himself in this year’s uncommonly deep crop of wide receivers. And, at his recent workout, Reagor boosted his stock even further. The TCU standout ran the 40-yard-dash in 4.28 and 4.22 seconds, according to the stopwatches of two observers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle writes. The hand-timed accuracy may be called into question, but no one is questioning Reagor’s speed as the draft draws near.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound receiver turned in a 1,000-yard campaign in 2018, then dipped to a 43/611/5 line in 2019. Still, he stands as one of the more intriguing WRs up for grabs.

Here’s more on the NFL Draft, including this year’s WR market:

  • The RaidersTitansVikingsColts, Packers, 49ers, Jets, Eagles, and Broncos are all in the hunt for wide receivers in the first three rounds, Adam Caplan of NFL.com tweets. Even after the likes of Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, Henry Ruggs III, and Tee Higgins are off the board, there will be plenty of high-caliber talents available for them.
  • The top four receivers figure to go inside of the Top 20 this year, but several receivers are in play for the back-end of the first round, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (on Twitter) hears. Pelissero lists Reagor, Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk, Baylor’s Denzel Mims, and Colorado’s Laviska Shenault Jr. as players who could make the first round cut.
  • After a disappointing 4.6-second 40-yard-dash at the combine, Mississippi corner Cameron Dantzler ran a 4.38-second 40-yard-dash this past week and backed it up with video proof (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter). Meanwhile, Dantzler’s agent tells Calvin Watkins of the Dallas News (on Twitter) that his combine time was slowed by an injured hamstring. Most projections have Dantzler going somewhere in the first two rounds.

    Man, I really want the Raiders to draft Lamb. There’s so much talent at WR in this draft, but I think he’ll be the best of the bunch.

    If Shenault were to drop into the 3rd round, I think he’d make for a nice gamble, too. He plays tough and has some tools.

    The offense is just a few good WRs away from being pretty good. I really like the team’s potential overall if they can find a quality CB at 19.

      I’m hoping a premium defender like Brown falls to 12 and the Raiders either take like a Reagor at 19 or trade down a bit and grab a receiver then

        I’d guess that Brown is one of the few premium picks that could fall, and I’d like him at #12 Past that, I would trade down both picks. Lamb and Jeudy would be fine at #12, but so, so many good WRs, why not trade down and get two very good, but not great, WRS?

        I’d love Henderson at #19, but he will likely be gone. The rest of the CBs, imho, are more like #25 or lower picks.

        So Brown at #12, or trade down. And Henderson at #19, or trade down. We’ve improved a lot, but we need a lot more players. I’d rather have four #2s than two #1s.

          I completely disagree. They need a game changing WR, and not a collection of guys who are pretty good. They tried that once with Streeter, Higgins, etc… It didn’t work so well.

          They need to go Lamb or Jeudy at 12. It’s a must to fairly assess Carr. If they get a WR at 12, I wouldn’t flip out if they traded back at 19. If they don’t come away with Jeudy or Lamb though, I’m going to be an unhappy fan.

    Mid round pick…Tyler Johnson from Minnesota. Great hands and tough as nails.

    These virtual pro days with 40 times significantly better than the legit combine are worthless

  4. Pretty surprised that the Giants are not on that list of teams targeting a WR in the first three rounds. They’re pretty weak at WR, especially considering Shepard’s injury histry. Although they have so many other holes that a WR early on might not make sense.

    • JoeBrady

      Surprising that they list Higgins in the top tier, but don’t even list Jefferson in the second tier, even though Jefferson goes before him. And I probably like Higgins more than most, but still….
