Greg Jennings WR 5'11 197 Western Michigan
By: Robert Davis
Jennings has been one of the more productive college wideouts over the past three seasons, but nobody has taken notice. As a sophomore in 2003, Jennings hauled in 56 passes for 1,050 yards and 14 touchdowns. As a junior, he caught 74 balls for 1,092 yards and 11 TD's. Jennings went out with a bang in 2005, finishing with career highs across the board. He caught 98 passes for 1,259 yards, and 14 touchdowns.
Greg Jennings is a true playmaker at WR. With the recent change in contact rules between corners and wideouts, Jennings is the type of receiver teams are looking for. He has the quickness in and out of cuts to gain separation, and when he has the ball in his hands he can make people miss, and has the speed to outrun defenders for big plays. Jennings has a lot of experience and has produced at a high level for three consecutive seasons. With his development and talent, Jennings could be a factor as a rookie out of the slot.
While he is not afraid of contact, Jennings needs to get stronger to be a consistent threat over the middle of the field. He has had some problems when facing more physical corners. Even though the talent in the MAC is improving, he still has not faced a lot of quality corners on a consistent basis.
Greg Jennings has been a steady riser since the end of the season. Scouts knew his name because of his production, but wanted to see his true physical ability. He tested out well in agility drills and clocked a 4.46 40 at the combine, showing he has the talent to play at the next level. There are a lot of questions in the second tier of wide receivers in this draft, and Jennings could take advantage and move up into the middle of the second round.
