49ers rookie Jauan Jennings may have the best YouTube highlight video Adam Peters has ever seen

Aug 24, 2020 at 11:18 AM--

You can tell that San Francisco 49ers VP of player personnel, Adam Peters, is very proud of the selection of wide receiver Jauan Jennings. The team managed to snatch him up in the seventh round of April's draft, and he could come in and make an immediate impact this season.

Peters is probably also glad that more scouts didn't peruse YouTube for more highlights of Jennings. Or maybe they did, but Adams and his staff were obviously more impressed than most. He recommends one video in particular.

"He's a really interesting guy, Jauan Jennings," Adams told Keiana Martin during the 49ers Live Look-In on Sunday. "I joke around; I'm smiling because we had this video that we passed around, all the coaches. We even sent it to Jed (York). It's called 'The Dawg.' You guys should check it out on YouTube.

"But it's Jauan Jennings, nicknamed 'The Dawg,' and it might have been the best highlight video I've ever seen on YouTube. He's a seventh-rounder, and he's definitely more talented than a seventh-rounder.

"But the thing about Jauan that you see, not only is he really talented, but he loves football. He loves playing. And that comes out on the film, and that comes out when you talk football with him, so we're really excited that we got him too."

You can watch the YouTube highlight video below.

Jennings caught 146 passes for 2,153 yards with 18 touchdowns in five seasons with the Volunteers, including a 59-catch, 969-yard, eight-touchdowns senior year in 2019. He also had 13 rushing attempts for 51 yards and a rushing touchdown last year.

ESPN's 32 NFL beat writers looked at each of their teams and identified one offseason standout player. For the San Francisco 49ers, that is third-year wide receiver Jauan Jennings, a seventh-round pick from the 2020 draft. "It wasn't until Week 14 that Jennings began to emerge as an option in the Niners' pass game last season," wrote Nick Wagoner, "but once he did, he became one of their most reliable targets on third down and in the red zone. Jennings had 16 catches for 212 yards over the final five games with 11 of those receptions going for a touchdown or a first down." Jennings finished the regular season

ESPN's Adam Schefter assesses Jimmy Garoppolo situation as camp approaches

Will the San Francisco 49ers find a trade partner for Jimmy Garoppolo in the coming weeks? NFL reporter Adam Schefter of ESPN seems to think there are at least a few teams who could be on the lookout for quarterback help once training camp arrives. Schefter spoke about Garoppolo's status during an appearance on ESPN Wednesday. Not surprisingly, Schefter said he felt Garoppolo would have been moved earlier in the offseason if he hadn't gotten shoulder surgery. But, with Garoppolo's health in doubt, teams weren't willing to give up what it would have taken to acquire him in trade. "When the 49ers went back and looked at the film from last season, I don't think they realized how well Jimmy Garoppolo played until they watched the film," Schefter said. "And I think

In May, Pro Football Focus ranked recently-married San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner as the best in the NFL at his position, ahead of other star defenders like Darius Leonard. Warner's elite status in the analytics site's eyes helped elevate the 49ers' unit in Pro Football Focus' ranking of the off-ball linebackers. That simply means linebackers who don't line up on the outside as edge rushers. San Francisco's linebackers grabbed the top spot in analyst

PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth
