In the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Rod Issac from Middle Tennessee State with the 147th overall pick. Rod Issac was voted First Team All-Sun Belt conference at the cornerback position for the 2010 season. Issac wowed some NFL personnel at his Pro-Day back in March, being clocked as low a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash. He also posted 22 reps of 225lbs on the bench press. Issac posted a short shuttle of 4.12, three cone of 6.90, broad jump of 9-foot-7, and a vertical leap of 34".
The 5-11, 196lbs cornerback played 4 years at MTSU in the Sun Belt conference and finished off his senior season with 49 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 3 interceptions. Issac is a corner with speed to burn and Tim Mingey, the Jaguars Assistant Director of College Personnel, was at the MTSU Pro-Day to observe Issac.
