Scouting Report: Adonis Jennings, WR, Temple

Adonis Jennings, WR, Temple

Sicklerville, NJ | 6024 | 200 | 4.50E | 2018

 

His size/speed combination is going to be desirable and he has come up clutch in big spots, placing him on the NFL radar as an undrafted free agent prospect. A fluid runner who starred as a track runner in high school, he flashes good ball skills, is able to make the difficult catch and does a good job of adapting to the ball while it’s in the air. He does well creating separation off the line of scrimmage and breaking free for the deep ball; if you don’t get physical and jam him up, he’ll make you pay. He has really stepped up his game in the red zone and continues to improve—in fact he has come a long way since his arrival in Philadelphia and may have improved more than any player on the team in the past three years. He lasted just one semester at Pittsburgh before being treated with anxiety disorder for being so far away from home—he then decided to transfer to Temple. His brother Deion Jennings has been offered a scholarship to play football at Rutgers. It might be an uphill climb for him to make a 53-man roster, considering he doesn’t play special teams and he’ll be competing for WR5 spot.
