By the time the seventh round of the draft rolled around, many had tuned out the annual extravaganza as last round picks usually aren’t the most revered of selections.
With their last pick of the event, the Redskins selected Rutgers running back Jawan Jamison. Jamison doesn’t fit the mold of your typical seventh round selection.
In fact, its not even close.
If you haven’t seen any highlights of his time in New Jersey you are missing out of a stud.
Check out these clips from a running back that ESPN’s Todd McShay had ranked as his fifth overall prospect at the position as well as an interesting tidbit about him and one of his backfield partners.
Now in the Nation’s Capital Jamison will complement Alfred Morris as a change-of-pace back, but did you know that this duo nearly took the field together years ago?
In high school, Jamison was a key contributor to The Bolles School winning back-to-back state titles in Florida in the late 2000’s.
While Jamison ultimately decided to attend Rutgers, he considered staying in The Sunshine State.
At Florida Atlantic University.
Yes the same FAU that Morris hails from.
No worries for Jamison though, because without the Redskins’ single season rushing record holder in front of him, he was able to become a starter for the Scarlet Knights and burn Big East defenses like this game securing touchdown against South Florida.
As far as the two playing together–the old adage better late than never keeps popping into my head.
Hail to the Redskins!
