Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Jaguars' picks: 7/250, Rashad Jennings, RB, 6-1, 231, Liberty...This could be a pleasant find for the Jaguars, taking a player of Jennings' quality this late in the draft. One draft analysis had Jennings as high as a third-round pick. Jennings has good size (6-1, 231) and speed. He was Big South Conference offensive player of the year for the past two seasons. He played eight games as a freshman at Pittsburgh before transferring to Liberty his final three seasons. While he's a stretch to make the roster as a running back, he could be a top special teams player. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Rashad Jennings News
12/08/17 - RB Rashad Jennings announced Friday he is retiring after eight seasons in the NFL. The 32-year-old Jennings wrote on Twitter: "If good things don't come to an end, then how can better things begin? I'm truly humbled. I'm truly excited... More to come on this. But for now, I just want to say THANK YOU. Thank you to everyone! #ShadHumbled." Jennings also posted a video and said he will be doing a press conference soon with the Giants. Jennings finished with 3,772 rushing yards, 1,469 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns in a career that began with the Jaguars in 2009 as a seven-round draft pick. He continued with the Raiders in 2013 and the Giants from 2014 through 2016.
02/13/17 - RB Rashad Jennings was released by the Giants on Monday in a salary-cap move. He led the team with 593 yards rushing and three touchdowns in 2016, but averaged only 3.3 yards per carry -- the second-lowest total of his career. Jennings, who will turn 32 in March, would have counted $3,062,500 against the salary cap in 2017, and the Giants now free up $2.5 million in cap space by releasing him.
11/15/16 - RB Rashad Jennings finished with 15 carries for a season-high 87 yards Monday against the Bengals.
Jennings, who missed three games earlier in the season with a thumb injury and who at times this season has looked like a plodding running back, had runs of 25, 24 and 16 yards this week.
"It felt good," he said. "Ain't no way around that. It felt good and it should. That's what we're supposed to do."
10/24/16 - RB Rashad Jennings, who has rushed 53 times for 142 yards (2.7 average) and one touchdown, is still the team's starting running back, per head coach Ben McAdoo. Jennings averaged 1.9 yards per carry on 13 attempts in Sunday's win over the Rams, just a hair better than the 1.8 yards per carry the running game combined to record.
10/19/16 - RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) remains on the injury report despite having been active last week against the Ravens. Jennings is not expected to miss Sunday's game.
