Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room shares one play from 2020 NFL Draft prospect Jauan Jennings of Tennessee that reveals the beast within this wide receiver’s game.
The original mission of the RSP Boiler Room was to find a single play that distilled as much as possible about a single player’s game. As the series has progressed, I’ve realized that Boiler Rooms are also good for sharing a small number of notable elements about a player’s game that is instructive about the craft of the game and evaluating talent.
Still, there are times that I find a play from a player that fulfills the original mission of the Boiler Room. This Jauan Jennings touchdown reception is one of them.
Arriving in Knoxville as a star quarterback, Tennessee saw enough from Jennings to realize that it had to get him on the field to help the team. Josh Dobbs may have never been a true NFL-caliber starter as a prospect (at least that has been my opinion for some time) but he had done enough not to lose his job to a freshman.
Jennings acclimated to the receiver position fast and the touchdown catch against South Carolina that I’m breaking down below epitomizes a lot about his film portfolio. I’ll be posting a complete film room on Jennings but if you trust that what I”m showing you is illustrative of his game, then you’ll know that this young receiver has what it takes to become a notable NFL starter.
Jennings is on the trajectory of becoming a beast of a football player—and when you label a prospect a “football player” instead of his position, that’s the ultimate compliment.
