TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor already went through the NFL Scouting Combine and has three years of college ball under his belt. One NFL team still wanted another look. 

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, a franchise asked Reagor to record himself at a pro day and send the team his footage. With the majority of individual workouts canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, Reagor and his camera crew found a way to make it work.

An NFL team asked former TCU WR Jalen Reagor to do a pro day this week and film it. Here is the film that went out: https://t.co/eTJ6sAqWLL

After weighing in at 197.6 pounds—down from 206 pounds at the combine—Reagor had a few coaches run him through drills. 

Miller McCalmon, a former assistant pro scouting director for the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans, clocked the wideout's 40-yard dash at 4.28 seconds, while private trainer Danny Arnold's stopwatch read 4.22 seconds.

Reagor ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash in Indianapolis. His pro-day attempt would've ranked as the fastest time at the combine, beating Henry Ruggs III's mark of 4.27 seconds. 

In the short shuttle, McCalmon recorded Reagor at 3.97 seconds, while Arnold's clock read 4.04 seconds. At the combine, Reagor ran the drill in 4.46 seconds. 

In his latest mock draft, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has the wideout going to the Seattle Seahawks at No. 64 overall—the last pick in the second round—and it's tough to say if this experiment will help that.

If nothing else, NFL teams love someone who is willing to buy in right away. Little about the run-up to the draft has been normal this year, and Reagor's film is the latest example. But it shows players aren't afraid to adapt.    

The draft kicks off April 23. If Reagor goes higher than expected, this tape may have helped him do so.
