2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about JARRETT PATTERSON:
Notre Dame | H: 6047 W: 304 40: 5.25 A: 3138 H: 1000 W: 7700
Four-year starter, Laguna Hills, CA. Spent first four seasons at center before transitioning to left guard for 2022. The former high school tackle shifted inside right away at Notre Dame and that is where he will reside in the NFL. Most of his career was right in the middle with his hand on the ball. He is a leader-of-the-line type presence. Can see the defense and make calls and is rarely caught by surprise. Went an entire career without allowing a sack (3,100+ snaps). He does not always make it look pretty but there are simply very few losses on tape from Patterson. Strong grip that can truly latch onto his target. Sturdy base that can at the very least anchor against power. Gets all his cleats in the ground with proper knee bend. Understands the importance of positioning and simply staying attached to his man. Stays under control when he peels to second level. Reactionary speed and quickness is poor. Does not have the twitch or looseness in his lower half to recover against plus-athleticism rushers. Feet are heavy and get stuck in mud, creating likely penalty-positions. Was flagged 12 times in 2021 alone. Under 32” arms and does not play wide. He does not have the reach or athleticism to provide inside-out versatility. The question will be whether he can provide depth to the three interior spots. Patterson is likely a center-only and even though the experience and intelligence are there, his talent may not be enough to warrant a starting spot.
OSR:34/37. 5th/6th round.
