If you judged Eagles first-round pick Jalen Reagor strictly off his showing at the combine, you might not come away very impressed outside of his leaping ability.
At 5-foot-11, Reagor didn't perform as well as expected in the 40-yard dash or in the agility drills.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, players didn't go through traditional pro days and team visits.
But we do have video of Reagor's virtual pro day where his 40 time was exceptional … bordering on unbelievable.

A 4.22 would not only have been the highest at this year's combine but would've tied for the best mark in combine history. Even the 4.28 number would've been behind only Alabama's Henry Ruggs III who went 12th overall to the Las Vegas Raiders.
Now, take these times with a grain of salt for obvious reasons, but Reagor does look like a much faster player on the field than the 4.47 he ran in Indy.
So what happened?
"I mean, I posted another time, too that I ran in my virtual pro day," Reagor told reporters Thursday night. "I was heavy at the Combine; I picked up weight. I dropped weight and I ran 4.2. So all I have to say, man, like coaches tell me, like tape doesn't lie. So I mean, whether it's a 4.47, 4.28, whatever it was, I'm ready to play fast; I'm ready to make plays for the Philadelphia Eagles."
Reagor's official weight at the combine was 206. At his pro day, he weighed 198. Perhaps the added bulk did hurt him.
If the Eagles got a receiver with a sub-4.3 40 time at pick 21, it could be a steal.
