4. Jalen Reagor will double his catch total from 2020
The Eagles hope drafting Reagor in the first round would give Wentz the sort of weaponry he needed to succeed in 2020. Instead, Reagor struggled to ever truly get going during his rookie campaign. By the time he started to look like a legitimate NFL starter, the season had already gotten away from Philadelphia.
He ended his rookie season with 31 catches for just 396 yards and a single touchdown. The hope is that his production will increase sharply with a full, healthy preseason. He has the athletic talent to be a productive starter if he can improve his technique as a route-runner.
Reagor should be able to build solid rapport with Hurts this year. He’s not going to instantly blossom into a 100-catch receiver anytime soon, but it’s reasonable to think he can catch 60+ passes over the course of a full 17-game regular season.
That kind of season won’t justify Philadelphia’s season to draft him over more talented guys in Round 1, but it will silence some outrage inside their own fan base. Reagor will be a weapon for the Eagles offense even if he never becomes the star they thought he could be.
