No. 1: Tim Jennings

Year: 2002
Position: Cornerback
Original Ranking: 2-star, No. 106 CB

This is the story of a guy who nobody wanted, who got passed over by colleges again and again, and then came to Georgia to begin what an incredible college and pro football career.

Jennings was a ball hawk before people were calling defensive backs who always seemed to find the ball by that name. In four years at Georgia, he picked off 10 passes for 194 yards, returning two of them for touchdowns, as well as serving some kick return duty.

His good college career went on to become a great NFL career with the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears, with 20 career interceptions for 279 yards.
