As he gets ready for a final college homecoming of sorts when Virginia plays Maryland in College Park on Saturday, Darius Jennings is not worried about those he has been compared to — if he ever thought about them at all. There is a more pressing concern: how to find his way back into Virginia's starting lineup.
During a decorated college career at West Virginia, Baltimore's Tavon Austin was tough to get a grasp of in the open field. He totaled 3,413 receiving yards in four years in Morgantown, and much of the damage Austin did as a receiver came after the catch when the Mountaineers quickly got him the ball in space. Five games into his NFL career, though, the St. Louis Rams rookie has found that space hard to come by.
Twenty four picks after the Rams selected speedy wide receiver and Baltimore native Tavon Austin in the first round of April¿s draft, the Ravens grabbed Florida safety Matt Elam with the 32nd and final selection of the first round.
