The Jacksonville Jaguars are a rather young team trying to break out in 2012 and have a few players that you could consider as "breakout" candidates. The majority of these candidates are on the offensive side of the football, as the team was obviously woeful in that area during the 2011 NFL season. One of those players who could be poised for a breakout is running back Rashad Jennings.

Jennings missed all of the 2011 season with a knee injury suffered in the preseason that landed him on injured reserve. The Jaguars were still a dominant rushing team, but without Jennings Maurice Jones-Drew had to shoulder the load. Jennings showed the ability to be a more than capable back up and even potential starter in 2010 when Jones-Drew was forced to miss some time with an injury. The 6'1 230 pound running back averages 5.4 yards per carry in his career this far, albeit as a back up, but is in a prime position to break out in a contract year, especially if Jones-Drew's hold ou lasts into the regular season.
