Jauan Jennings recently heard his name called in the 2020 NFL draft ,as he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. Jennings was taken as the 3rd-pick in the 7th round and was 217th overall.
Jennings leaves behind a 'dawg-like' mentality for future Vols to follow. Jennings did all of this while sporting the number 15 for the Vols. He left Knoxville as one of the all-time receivers in school history and shot up the record books his senior season.
Jennings, now being in San Francisco, has a new number. He was assigned a number that donned the back of two all-pro NFL wide receivers in the past. Jennings will follow suit behind NFL greats such as Terrell Owen's and Aquan Bolden. Jauan "The Dawg" Jennings will wear the well-known number of eighty-one when he debuts for the 49ers.
If his career plays out close to the likes those two all-pro receivers, he will be one of the steals of the 2020 NFL draft and a guy people are talking about for years to come.
