2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about RAKIM JARRETT:
Maryland | H: 6000 W: 190 40: 4.34 A: 3138 H: 0938 W: 7578
Junior entry, three-year starter, Palmer Park, MD. Three-time honorable mention All-Big 10. An elite athlete whose game centers around explosion and toughness. His burst off the line is next level but he brings more to the table than speed alone. Shows the feel for finding available creases with the ball in his hands and he has tremendous grit against tacklers. He welcomes contact and borderline looks for it. This is a physical, aggressive football player capable of creating the big play on multiple fronts. There are some rough edges to his game when it comes to skill set and knowing when to take the gamble on the tools will determine where he goes in the draft. Yoked up frame that may not tip the scales but plays bigger against contact than initially perceived. Tough and hard-nosed. Absorbs contact and will often be the aggressor against defenders. Incredible explosion and top speed that shows up in different ways. Takes the top off a secondary. Has lined up plenty outside and in the slot. Brings special teams potential as a gunner and returner. Does not have a wide catch radius. Too many drops and has a hard time maintaining posture and balance on downfield throws. Runs himself into contact against press coverage. Needs work on releases. Struggles in contested situations. Jarrett is a swing for the fence type prospect with game breaking speed and burst, but has a lot to clean up as a pass catcher and route runner before he can be an every down asset.
2022 Stats: 40-471, 11.8 ypr, 3 TD. OSR:26/46. 3rd/4th round.
