49ers Sign Jauan Jennings

The 49ers have inked seventh-round pick Jauan Jennings, per a club announcement. Per the terms of his slot, the wide receiver is set to earn ~$3.4MM on his four-year deal. Of course, as the No. 217 overall pick, it’s not a certainty that he’ll make the roster.

Jennings was the second wide receiver selected in April, long after first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk. Jennings didn’t come into the draft with the same sort of fanfare, but he was an accomplished player in his own right. In his final year at Tennessee, the 6’3″ receiver finished out with 59 receptions for 969 yards and eight touchdowns.

Jennings has shown that he can break tackles with his big frame, but his lack of speed impacted his stock somewhat. Still, you don’t need to beat every defender if you’re able to plow through some of them. Jennings will look to impress coaches with his power as he pushes to make a group that could be without Deebo Samuel for a little while.

Here’s the full rundown of the Niners’ class, via PFR’s tracker:

1-14: Javon Kinlaw, DT (South Carolina)
1-25: Brandon Aiyuk, WR (Arizona State)
5-153: Colton McKivitz, T (West Virginia): Signed
6-190: Charlie Woerner, TE (Georgia)
7-217: Jauan Jennings, WR (Tennessee): Signed

    That he fell that far is a total joke. He’ll make a lot of teams look foolish for passing him over so often. The numbers he put up with terrible QB play is impressive.

      Exactly this!! He is going to make Shannahan and Lynch look even better than they already do..They’ve been able to get some excellent steals later on in the past couple drafts, and Jennings is going to be another one!!

      Everyone points to the 49ers lack of offensive weapons as a reason they can’t win it all, but guys like Jennings, Hurd, Aiyuk, Taylor, and Bourne are going to surprise some people. Everyone knows the 49ers have Kittle and Deebo, but these 5 guys, and Hurd especially will make a name for themselves as well!! Shannahan is definitely going to make sure he gets the best out of each and every one of these playmakers..Its a versatile group, and they’re going to be fun to watch all grow together!!
