The Jalen Reagor experience has been a trying one for Philadelphia Eagles fans. The 2020 first-round pick clearly has massive potential, but he's really struggled to put it all together.

That came to a head when he got absolutely chewed out by head coach Nick Sirianni at practice on Wednesday.

That may have been the wake-up call Reagor needed. All indications are that he's stepped up in a big way on Thursday.

There's no question that the sky is the limit for Reagor, but the red flags are just as obvious. He caught only 31 passes for 396 yards in 2020. Sure, he was dealing with a shaky QB situation all year, but the Eagles were also desperate for a wide receiver to step up, and Reagor wasn't that guy.

Despite starting more games (11) than anyone else at the position, he trailed both Greg Ward (53) and 2019 6th-round pick Travis Fulgham (38) in receptions.

Reagor was a young rookie, though, and he won't even turn 23 years old until January.

There's plenty of time for him to develop into the start that Philly drafted him to be, and it sounds like Sirianni knows exactly how to bring out the best in Reagor.
