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.

  • The job has to be open and traditionally the team is not looking to go outside for a veteran which bodes well for Jennings and the other young contenders. The real problem is the front 7 pass rush, Peprah was good enough the year before to win it all with and if the rush improves he can be capable again. It is a shame Collin's cannot play, I have never seen a free safety cover as much ground as he did, not much chance another like him will surface soon.
