2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Rashad Jennings, RB, Louisiana Tech

Jennings originally committed to play for Pitt but did not qualify. He played the 2005 season for the Panthers, rushing for 411 yards on 86 carriers (4.8 average) and one touchdown. In 2006 he transferred to Liberty University where he started nine of eleven games, recording 1,020 rushing yards on 179 carriers (5.7) with 10 TD. He also caught six passes for 56 yards. Jennings was voted to the Big South Conference First Team. He then followed his breakthrough campaign in 2006 with a similarly impressive 2007 season. Although, he only played in nine games gaining 1,113 yards on 191 carriers (5.8) with 15 TD. He also caught 13 passes for 276 yards and two TD, earning the Conference's Player of the Year Award. In 2008, Jennings rushed for only 411 yards (4.8 average) with one TD. He also made seven receptions. Jennings has the size and strength NFL teams covet. He has good stamina and the ability to wear defenses down with his inside running. Jennings loves to run inside the tackles, where his bruising style and superior instincts allow him run through many would-be tacklers. He is a hard worker, who will do anything to improve. Despite tremendous effort, he still lacks explosiveness. Jennings has improved on his footwork, but it is still below average. He is very slow outside, having been clocked in the 4.55-4.63 range. He will have trouble making the corner in the NFL. Jennings had an outstanding postseason headlined by his impressive showing at the 2009 East-West Shrine game. His performance may have put him in the upper stages of the third round. He could be a steal in the mode of Chicago Bears' 2008 second rounder RB Matt Forte.
