Clicking sound coming from rear end

I noticed this sound a few days ago and i can constantly hear it now, the speed of the clicks changes with acceleration and i feel like i can feel it in the floor ,

Please help what could this be !?!?

Does it click when you're stationary and the engine is on or only when you're moving?

Just a shot in the dark but maybe it's a rock or rocks lodged in the tread of your tires?

I just pulled the back wheel off and put it in drive and it seems that the caliper is making the brakes constantly rub and the rotor will not turn as easily as it should when the jeep is in neutral
