Last week, I nominated tight end Zach Miller as the Jaguars' most versatile player for a slideshow assembled by NFL Featured Columnist Daniel Wolf.
In picking an H-back, hybrid-receiver type who can also play as an in-line tight end—and who's taken practice reps at quarterback—I felt sure of my selection.
Then Rashad Jennings, Jacksonville's punishing 6'1", 230-pound second-string running back who's been catching passes left and right this summer, bull-rushed his way to a blocked punt against Miami.
Coming in off the edge, Jennings hit the Dolphins' last blocker in front of punter Brandon Fields at full speed, knocking him backward. Throwing his hands up at the last second, Jennings got enough of the ball to send it out of the end zone for a safety.
There's an argument for keeping him focused on playing running back in case Jones-Drew goes down, but Jennings might as well become a special teams terror while he's waiting.
