Today we’ll be examining the draft stock and potential of former Tennessee star Juan Jennings.


Juan Jennings is one of the most revered players in Tennessee history, known for his heart and tenacity. Juan also however possesses elite skills for the wide receiver position. Looking back at his career Jennings, during his time at Tennessee accrued 2,153 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns. While these are impressive numbers, look no further than his career highlights to see his skills put on show. To start, Jennings has a big frame, standing at six foot three inches and weighing around two-hundred and ten pounds giving him an ideal frame for a NFL wide receiver. Jennings also possesses strong hands that allow him to catch a majority of the 50/50 balls and control a catch through contact. Jennings also has an impressive vertical which was put on display during his infamous Hail Mary catch against Georgia. The next attribute which is his biggest strength is his ability to break tackles and get that extra inch. During the 2019 season, Jennings lead the nation in broken tackles. Jennings does however have his weaknesses, manly his speed, Jennings had a less than desirable 40 yard dash, this does not mean he will not have success however. Jennings could make an impact day one for the team that drafts him, before moving into a bigger role on a team I could see Jennings being a viable red zone threat as a rookie. My projection for Jennings is mid 4th round to early 5th.
