Liberty RB on Eagles' radar?


The Eagles are showing a high level of interest in Liberty running back Rashad Jennings, according to Ed Thompson of Scout.com.

Jennings has worked out for the Eagles, Broncos, Patriots and Jets, per Thompson. And he has a workout scheduled with the Saints. The Bengals are also said to be highly interested in him.

Our friend Scott Wright at draftcountdown.com has Jennings ranked as his seventh-best running back. Wright's scouting report praises Jennings for his size and ability as a blocker.

Jennings is 6-foot-1, 231 pounds (according to NFL.com), and he ran a 4.67 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine.
