Thomas Rawls: Let go by Jags

Rawls was released by the Jaguars on Friday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Rawls missed time in training camp due to a hamstring injury and struggled to make an impact after retaking the field, totaling just eight carries for 24 yards and three catches for 19 yards in two preseason appearances. The 26-year-old running back flashed in 2015 when he broke out in Seattle, but has not surpassed 500 scrimmage yards or 4.0 YPC in a season since. In Rawls' absence, Elijah Hood and Devante Mays (ankle) will face slightly better odds of making the initial 53-man roster.

Thomas Rawls Biography

Childhood and High School 

Born on August 3, 1993 in Flint, Michigan, Thomas Rawls is a graduate of Flint Norther High School, where he was a running back on the school's football team. During his high school football career he ran a total of 1,585 yards and had an average yard per carry exceeding 10. The same season, his senior year, he scored 19 touchdowns. As a unanimous selection for all-state, he also achieved the honor of breaking the school's record, which had previously been set by a winner of the Heisman Trophy. The Flint Journal even named him Player of the Year. Few football players in Michigan were recruited more than Rawls was. 

College 

While enrolled at the University of Michigan, Rawls expressed his desire to break rushing records set by university alumni Mike Harper, who was his favorite college football player. During his freshman year, Rawls played 10 games for the university and pulled off 73 rushing yards. This contributed to his selection as one of five of the university's players expected to pull off surprising feats for the 2012 football season. Yet in the 2012 and 2013 seasons he was not as active in the games as he could have been. In 2013 he only achieved three carries for the entire season. 

After a transfer to Central Michigan University he spent his senior year football season playing as part of the school's team. In a September 2014 game Rawls was able to score two touchdowns and 155 yards rushes. He finished the 2014 college football season with 10 touchdowns and 1,103 rushing yards.

His teammates saw him as a workhouse that would do whatever needed to be done to ensure the team's ongoing success. By the end of the year he had been voted onto the All-Rookie Team for the NFL and PFWA.
