2022 NFL Draft Prospect: Reggie Roberson Jr., WR, Southern Methodist University

Reggie Roberson Jr SMU
SMU wide receiver Reggie Roberson Jr. is a top 10 wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft Class. His big play ability is going to make teams happy.

Reggie Roberson Jr. could have easily decided to enter the NFL Draft in April, but he decided to come back for another year. I honestly felt that Roberson was a top 10 receiver in the 2021 NFL Draft, and for him to return was a huge decision. Roberson has battled through injuries, including a 2020 season that was rattled with a knee injuyr, but when he is healthy he is a beast.

The decision to return in my opinion was smart. Many will say he should have come out, but with the way COVID stopped the medicals from happening, it was actually a great decision to return. NFL teams will want to get a big look at any serious injuries. That is why several players fell out of the draft that should have been drafted in 2021. Roberson when on the field is one of the most talented players and is easily a top talent in the state of Texas.

The SMU wide out has accumulated 2,109 yards and scored 18 touchdowns in just 22 games as a Mustang. He was averaging 118.5 yards per game before getting hurt.

The 6 foot wide out has a knack for shredding apart opposing defenses. With Shane Buechele leaving, Roberson will have to rely on a transfer quarterback like Tanner Mordecai or freshman Preston Stone, but both are blue chip prospects. Roberson is going to make them better regardless.

Roberson has been an animal since high school. He tore it up in high school before signing with West Virginia. Thank God he returned to Texas because West Virginia did not deserve him! Since returning the SMU wide out has been the number 1 wide out for the Mustangs.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

If Reggie Roberson Jr. can have a huge senior season with a new quarterback, I would like to think he can solidify himself as a top pass catcher in the 2022 NFL Draft. There are some studs at Ohio State and Alabama, but let’s not overlook Roberson’s production. If he can stay healthy, NFL teams are going to be smiling, because he can play. The biggest knock on Roberson is his injury past, but returning in the 2021 season could end up being the best decision for any prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. You made the right move Reggie! – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner!
