I understand what you're saying here, but like bah said earlier they don't have to "compliment" each other for it to work. They are actually very similar in style so that would be useful in the fact that nothing has to change in the offense when the other one is in.
Jackson can both run with speed and with power which means having a speedier compliment to him isn't really a need. With Jennings you get someone who, while unproven, can also run with speed and power. IMO it's a great pairing.
