Tennessee Titans 7-round 2020 NFL Mock Draft: All offense
By Brady Akins
Round 1, Pick 29: Jalen Reagor, Wide Receiver, TCU
Other Potential Picks: Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU — Josh Jones, OT, Houston
If a player as talented as Reagor were to fall into Tennessee’s lap all the way at 29th like it looks like he might, Jon Robinson might race up to the podium at Chris Johnson speed to send in the pick.
Not that Reagor isn’t without his concerns. The receiver struggled with dropped passes through his final year of college, a season that saw the junior receiver dip a bit in his overall production. But the TCU receiver’s struggles can be explained away with inconsistency at the quarterback position, where three different quarterbacks took snaps for the Horned Frogs in 2019, with the two leading passers failing to post a completion percentage over 55%.
But even with his production taking a hit, Reagor’s enormous potential as a pro jumps out on film. He’s shown skill at people able to locate and come down with contested throws, while showcasing enough elite top-end speed at the college level to potentially give the Titans a high-end deep threat.
Tennessee does have the fan-favorite Kalif Raymond on the roster, who served the role of big-play pass catcher for the Titans well in limited action. However, Reagor’s quickness and separation skills would give him a chance to take over Raymond’s role without missing a step, while also giving Tennessee a tougher, more do-it-all type player to have on the field in any situation.
The Titans might also have a chance at the more productive Justin Jefferson, but it’s likely he will be gone at this point. Houston’s Josh Jones would be a viable option to fill the hole at right tackle left by Conklin, but the Titans should not be desperate at tackle after resigning Dennis Kelly.
For his upside and scheme fit, Tennessee would be lucky to draft Reagor at 29.
