As the NFL Draft is just days away, The Indianapolis Colts have a need to fill at the wide receiver position.
The Colts hold two picks in the second round, 34th and 44th overall.
Drafting a wide receiver at either one of these spots would net them the playmaker they need as a counterpart to T.Y. Hilton.

Reagor is the son of eight-year NFL veteran Montae Reagor.
His father was a stud defensive lineman who spent four seasons with the Colts.
The Waxahachie, Texas native made an immediate impact upon his arrival at TCU.
He was named Big 12 Co-Offensive Freshman of the Year and lead the Horned Frogs with 33 receptions, 576 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns in 14 games.
His success only continued as he had a breakout sophomore season.
Reagor was a second-team All-Big 12 selection and TCU’s MVP in 2018, he again led the team in receiving with 72 receptions, 1,061 yards, and nine touchdowns.
He also ran the ball effectively, scoring twice on 13 carries.
2019 was a down season as he only had 43 receptions, 611 yards, and five touchdowns as a junior.
This was in part to poor quarterback play.

His explosiveness was still on display as he returned two punts for touchdowns while average 20.8 yards per punt return.
Reagor’s game-breaking speed comes in a solid package at 5′ 11” and 206 pounds.
He ran a 4.47 40 yard dash at the NFL combine but demolished that number at his pro day as he ran a 4.22.
His time at the combine was higher than expected, but that may be to the added weight.
Reagor was nine pounds lighter at his pro day.

While the drill numbers are impressive he maybe even faster in-game:

.3 MPH faster than the fastest play in the 2019 NFL season 🔥
• T. Hill 22.64
• M. Breida 22.30 MPH

At TCU he displayed a wide range of skills as a receiver
To go along with his blazing speed, Reagor is also great once he blows by defenders.
He is competitive when the ball is in the air and this allows him to haul in contested catches.
His speed and elusiveness give him the ability to be great after the catch, excelling at screens and short passes.
Those abilities also translate to big plays as a kick returner.
Jalen Reagor, minha pick favorita se ficarmos na 30!

Many believe that the TCU product has first-round potential.
This could leave the Colts in a precarious position.
If they choose to wait, they may lose out on Reagor.
Though the Colts could trade into the back of the first round and snag him.NEXT: Colts GM Chris Ballard Talks About Plans In Upcoming NFL Draft
