Even at 33 years old and coming off an injury, DeSean Jackson is probably the first name that comes to mind when Philadelphia Eagles fans are talking about the team's fastest player.

Undrafted rookie Adrian Killins might have something to say about that.

With no combine invite and UCF's pro day getting canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, Killins doesn't have an official 40-yard dash time to compare to Jackson's. Killins maintains that he's "always been the fastest guy" on his teams, however, and that he was the fastest player at UCF in all four years that he played there.

Killins had no trouble turning that speed into on-field production, either. In his 2019 senior season, Killins averaged 7.2 yards per carry (on 87 rushes) while also catching 8 passes for 120 yards. He also returned kicks for the Knights, averaging 21.8 yards per return over his career.

The 5-foot-8-inch, 164-pound Killins is still far from a lock to make the Eagles' final roster after being signed as an undrafted free agent. Philly's front office seems to be focused on getting faster this offseason, having also drafted Jalen Reagor, and Killins could help them do just that.
