He might not be a big name or even someone anyone’s ever heard of, but the Packers have had success with guys no one’s heard of before and they might have found another diamond in the rough. MD Jennings is currently working out with the 1st team at safety in OTAs as Charlie Peprah is injured. Peprah is no sure thing to keep his job, however. The Packers used a 4th round pick on Jerron McMillian and have contemplated moving Charles Woodson to safety if 2nd round pick Casey Hayward can establish himself there this offseason.
Jennings will definitely be given a chance to compete for the starting job this offseason and the fact that he’s impressing in Peprah’s absence is definitely a good sign. Jennings was undrafted out of Arkansas State last season and was on almost no one’s radar. As a rookie he was primarily a special teamer and played just 10 snaps on defense. However, as I said before, the Packers are known for finding diamonds in the rough.
