Player No. 2

Jalen Reagor - WR

Jalen Reagor should certainly secure a spot on the Vikings' 53-man roster for the 2023 season. Acquired for his speed and playmaking ability, Reagor brings a different element to Minnesota's receiving corps and as a punt returner. His speed and agility make him a deep threat that can stretch the field, creating opportunities for other receivers and diversifying the team's offensive playbook.

Reagor's potential for growth and development within the offense is compelling since he wasn’t given many opportunities as a receiver a season ago. As a young player, he has room to refine his route-running and improve his consistency, both of which are areas where coaching can have a significant impact.

By investing in his development, the Vikings not only bolster their immediate offensive capabilities but also cultivate a player who can evolve into a cornerstone of their passing attack in the years to come.

In sum, Reagor's blend of speed and potential should have him more involved in the offense this season and likely as the team's punt returner as well.
