In the 7th Round The Jaguars Selected RB Rashad Jennings and WR Tiquan Underwood

After trading the 7th round pick that they acquired by trading Tony McDaniels, the Jaguars were left with just the two compensatory picks that they were awarded.

With the first of the picks, the Jaguars selected RB Rashad Jennings from Liberty. Rashad was on Twitter during the draft and I watched as he got more and more disappointed as the rounds went by. I sent him a tweet telling to keep his head up and that I hoped the Jags would pick him up. Sure enough they did and we got a steal at the end of the 7th round. In 2008 he rushed for 1,507 yards and scored 17 touchdowns. For more proof check out this highlight film:

With their second pick in the 7th round, the Jaguars selected Tiquan Underwood WR from Rutgers. Though he was overshadowed in the draft by his teammate Kenny Britt, Tiquan Underwood bests him in terms of speed, putting up a 4.41 time at the combine. He also had a second best vertical leap at the combine jumping 41.5 inches. (On a side note, I find it interesting that the Jaguars drafted the three receivers with the best vertical leaps at the combine. Dillard had a 42.5, Underwood had a 41.5 and Thomas had 40.5) Check out this footage of Tiquan Underwood in action:
