Jaiquawn Jarrett NFL Draft scouting report

Jaiquawn Jarrett
6'0, 198 pounds | Free safety | Temple

Strengths: J
arrett played in a cover-2 system at Temple and is at his best in the middle part of the field. Has a lot of experience and is a gritty, tough player. He has good instincts to diagnose plays. Rarely bites on fakes and play action. When he does, though, Jarrett has good change-of-direction skills to turn and make a play toward the ball. Is fundamentally sound in pass coverage, staying low in his pedal and opening his hips. Likes to play near the line of scrimmage a lot.

Weakness: He struggles when asked to play close to the line or deep. For whatever reason, he doesn't play back far enough and will get beaten over the top. Has a small frame and can be easily overpowered. Will need to get much bigger, but may not have the frame to do so. Will over-pursue in the run game and take himself out of a play.

Final word: Playing for a Mid-American Conference school, Jarrett may have to refine his game for the NFL. His style agains the run in the MAC is well enough, but may not work at the next level. Where Jarrett is best-suited is a cover-2 scheme that doesn't rely on him to be the best player on the defense.
