April 27, 2009 : Liberty Athletics

Rashad Jennings became the first Liberty Flames football player taken in the NFL Draft in nearly two decades, as the running back was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Sunday afternoon, in the seventh round of the collegiate player draft.

Jennings, who was the 250th overall selection in the draft, was the first of two seventh-round picks by the Jaguars and one of nine overall players taken by Jacksonville during the two-day selection event.

Jennings becomes the sixth player in program history to hear his name called at the NFL Draft and the first since the 1990 draft, when Liberty had a pair of draftees.
