The reporter and assignee fields are for one user.  If the dropdown you are referring to is the list of possible assignees and reporters it is all the user that can create issues in the project and be assigned issues in the project.  You need to remove users from access to those functions to remove them from the list. 

How do I add a user to the drop down lists?

They need to be assigned to the project in a role (or group) that has permission to create issues (reporter) or be assigned issues to work (assignable issue permission). 

How do I assign them to a project in a role that has permissions?

Joe Pitt Community Leader Sep 16, 2019

If you are a project admin you can assign people to roles and the JIRA admin should document what roles have what permissions.

here is a link to managing permission. Copy/paste the link https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiracloud/managing-project-permissions-776636362.html
