The NFL is a what have you done for me lately league and with Jalen Reagor out with a thumb injury, Eagles fans have been tormented by screenshots and videos of rookies like Justin Jefferson, Chase Claypool, Brandon Aiyuk, Laviska Shenault, and Tee Higgins running rough shot on opposing defenses.
Reagor had 5 catches for 96 yards and a 19.2 average per catch, with a long of 55 yards. Jefferson for his part is destroying the league early on, and he’s currently the highest-graded rookie in the NFL.

Jefferson this season (6 games): 28 catches, 537 yards, 3 TD
The comparison stems from the fact that Jefferson was selected one pick after Reagor at No. 22 by the Vikings.
It is way too early to tell if Howie Roseman picked the wrong guy but the discussion won’t temper down until Reagor truly is able to stay on the field because Jefferson is definitely the truth.
