Watch: Jauan Jennings Hauls in First NFL Catch, TD
Jauan Jennings was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. After landing on the practice squad / injury list during his rookie year, the Cowan native in Tennessee, finally recorded a take in the NFL.
And what better way to catch your first NFL pass than to have it for six.
Just before halftime, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hit the Jennings open for 11 yards to take a 7-3 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles.

In an attack that has seen top receiver Brandon Aiyuk lose playing time due to injuries and a poor preseason, Jennings could be in line for more work if he continues to impress.
