I was taken aback by Adam's selection of Chris Prosinski with his 6th selection in our "draft".

While I may not necessarily agree with it, I definitely see where he was going with the pick. Prosinski gives him a lot of versatility, assuming he can find a spot for him to excel at on the offensive side of the ball.

I've got two selections remaining and while I focused heavily on scoring points with my last three selections, I'm thinking it's time I pick up an option that is slightly more balanced than the previous few picks. Though I think they'll prove to be just fine on either side. Keeping this in mind, with my 6th pick, I'm going ahead and selecting Rashad Jennings.

With Jennings on my roster, I feel I've got another solid player that will be able to use his athleticism to have the ability to play effectively on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

While he is a running back by trade, Jennings possesses elite receiving ability for a back, and has the size, at 6'1 228, to line up outside and take on any defender in Adam's secondary. It also gives him the attributes to be a solid contributor in our defensive backfield, or even rush at times.

I've been keeping an eye on Jennings since the beginning of our draft, and I'm pretty happy to be getting him so late in our picks.
