Rashad Jennings RB Liberty 6'1 230

By: Robert Davis

Jennings began his college career at the University of Pittsburgh and started the season opener as a true freshman. He finished the season with 411 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Following that season, he decided to transfer to Liberty to be closer to his father, who was ill. He made an instant splash for the Flames in 2006, rushing for 1,020 yards and ten touchdowns. As a junior, he rushed for 1,113 yards and 15 touchdowns, while adding 276 yards and two scores on 13 receptions in just nine games. Jennings went out with a bang, rushing for 1,500 yards and 17 scores as a senior, while adding 24 catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns.

Strengths

Jennings is an intriguing blend of size and speed. He has a great frame, carrying the necessary bulk and strength to carry the football between the tackles. He isnít a true power back, as he has the agility to make the first defender miss and the speed to get to the corner and break off big runs. Jennings has also been very involved in the passing game with 48 career receptions.

Weaknesses

Jennings has a bit of an upright running style, negating some of his power. He can run through tackles at a lower college level, but he will need to learn to keep his pads down coming through the line and at the end of his runs to pick up extra yardage. The speed of the game is going to be different as well, and he will have to prove he has the game to take the next step up.

Future

Jennings has emerged as one of the better all around back and one of the best small school prospects available for the April draft. His rushing and receiving skills to go along with his size should find him a spot in the NFL. How well he performs in the post season will decide where he goes on draft day, but he is a player that could develop into a quality performer no matter where he is selected.
