Its finally draft day.

Saw updated three-round mock draft from CBS earlier today that has Gladney going in the 1st and Blacklock and Reagor in the 2nd, and Niang in the 3rd:

Round 1 - Pick 32

Jeff Gladney CB
TCU • SR • 5'10" / 191 LBS
PROJECTED TEAM
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
33rd
POSITION RNK
6th

The Super Bowl champion Chiefs select Gladney to end Round 1. They bring in a physical player to compete in the secondary.



Mock Trade from San Francisco 49ers
Round 2 - Pick 4 (36)

Ross Blacklock DL
TCU • JR • 6'3" / 290 LBS
PROJECTED TEAM
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
3rd

The Browns part with No. 41 and No. 115 to move up to No. 36 overall. They also receive No. 217 overall from the 49ers after the latter traded out of the back of the first round. Cleveland selects Blacklock to bolster their interior defensive line



Mock Trade from Philadelphia Eagles
Round 2 - Pick 21 (53)

Jalen Reagor WR
TCU • JR • 5'11" / 206 LBS
PROJECTED TEAM
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
41st
POSITION RNK
9th

Tampa Bay adds a slot receiver that Tom Brady covets. The Buccaneers have now added Ezra Cleveland, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Reagor to that offense


Round 3 - Pick 29 (93)

Lucas Niang OL
TCU • SR • 6'6" / 315 LBS
PROJECTED TEAM
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
68th
POSITION RNK
12th

Niang battled injuries last season, but when he's 100 percent, he moves well in space and can dominate in the run game.

One mock on NFL.com has Reagor and Gladney in the first...

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap30...-nfl-mock-draft-30-justin-herbert-falls-to-18


PICK

21


Jalen Reagor - WR



School: TCU | Year: Junior

This might be a surprising selection to some, but sources say the Eagles are enamored with Reagor's speed and explosive potential as a three-level target for Carson Wentz.



PICK

32


Jeff Gladney - CB



School: TCU | Year: Senior (RS)

The 5-foot-10, 191-pounder's a ball-hawking, in-your-face corner -- which is a priority need for the Chiefs.

Cris Colinsworth mocked Reagor going to Eagles.

Has been some Eagles/Reagor buzz recently...

21. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES — WR JALEN REAGOR, TCU
Clemson’s Tee Higgins or LSU’s Justin Jefferson would not surprise here, but Reagor is a world-class, 26-foot long-jumper who also boasts a 42-inch vertical (think Michael Jordan). His 4.47 speed is a little misleading because when he gets that long-jump stride going, he really gobbles up ground quickly.

At 5-foot-11, he concerns me a little with his size because we know how much Carson Wentz loves to throw above the rim. Reagor didn’t have some of the flashy catch-and-run plays of a CeeDee Lamb or a Jerry Jeudy, but he really understands stems and route running; he comes back to the ball well and can outjump almost any corner when necessary. He also had to deal with spotty QB play last year at TCU after being named TCU’s MVP in 2018 — Reagor actually had to deal with the worst ball placement of any WR in this draft class, per PFF’s advanced ball-placement data.

Expect even more production in Philadelphia with a better quarterback. This would be a solid choice for the Eagles.

PFF's list of "my guys" ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft

PFF’s analysts highlight their favorite prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft, including Louisiana Tech’s Amik Robertson, TCU’s Jalen Reagor, among others.

KEVIN COLE — WR JALEN REAGOR, TCU
At first glance, Reagor isn’t a prospect who numbers-based analysts love. He averaged fewer than 50 receptions per year and never surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in a single season. However, adjusting Reagor’s numbers for poor quarterback play reveals an elite prospect: he led his team in receiving yards and touchdowns as an 18-year-old true freshman and accounted for over 40% of his team’s receiving production his sophomore season.

Reagor looked like a plus athlete on the field, and despite a “disappointing” 4.47-second 40 at the combine, his performance ranked second among top prospects according to my projected WAR model. A receiver with Reagor’s versatility and production belongs in the top tier with Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamband Henry Ruggs III.


AUSTIN GAYLE — CB JEFF GLADNEY, TCU
Only three FBS cornerbacks have played more coverage snaps (1,487) or seen more targets (232) over the past four seasons than TCU’s Jeff Gladney, PFF’s seventh-ranked cornerback and No. 34 overall player in the 2020 NFL Draft. His career coverage grade (89.8) ranks ninth among all FBS cornerbacks with at least 1,000 coverage snaps played over the past four collegiate seasons (2016-19). He also ranks first in completion percentage allowed (47%), third in forced incompletion percentage (21.1%) and seventh in passer rating allowed (72.3) among the same group of cornerbacks.

And he’s only gotten better with experience. Among the 143 FBS cornerbacks with at least 600 coverage snaps played in 2018 and 2019 combined, Gladney ranked sixth in PFF coverage grade (90.4). He allowed just 54 receptions for 690 yards, 27 first downs and four touchdowns from 130 targets. He ranked third in completion percentage allowed (41.5%), sixth in forced incompletion percentage (24.6%) and eighth in passer rating when targeted (59.5) over that span.

Gladney’s physical, aggressive approach to the position, instincts and ball skills should all translate to early success in his NFL career. He’s also an underrated match-and-mirror cornerback with better scheme versatility than he’s given credit for despite his small frame (5-foot-10, 191 pounds).
