Former Tennessee Vols wide receiver Jauan Jennings made his first NFL reception on Sunday.
And it was a memorable one.
Jennings, who was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, caught an 11-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo at the five-yard line, made a move, and found the end zone.
First NFL catch is a TD for Jauan Jennings! 🙌

Jennings is never going to be the fastest guy on the field. But there aren’t many players out there who can match the effort he gives on every down.
Vol fans are certainly happy to see the Tennessee native carving out a role for himself in the NFL.
