Conclusion

Overall, Reagor is an explosive deep threat that has the build and run-after-catch ability to make a game-breaking play at all three levels. He isn’t the all-world speed demon that Tyreek Hill is, but Reagor’s play style is very similar, and he will likely be a player defenses need to account for on every snap.
