Reggie Bonnafon can jump.
Really, really jump.
Just check out this video for proof:

For those scoring at home, Bonnafon jumped an incredible 43.5 inches as part of offseason physical testing. As the Louisville Courier-Journal points out, that mark would have given him the best jump at the recently completed NFL combine. The next closest Louisville player was receiver Jamari Staples, who jumped 40 inches.
So this all begs the question: what will coach Bobby Petrino do with Bonnafon in the spring? There is no question Bonnafon has incredible talent, but Petrino has yet to find the perfect role for him after playing him at quarterback, running back and receiver last season. With Lamar Jackson the incumbent at quarterback, perhaps a hybrid back/receiver role would suit him best.
It is pretty clear Louisville can use an athlete like Bonnafon on offense to try and boost their scoring average and production. And that is one area Petrino is focused on headed into the season.
