2011 NFL Draft: Jaguars Select Rod Issac

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.
