2011 Denver Broncos Draft Cameos: Jaiquawn Jarrett

Strong Safety - Jaiquawn Jarrett, Temple

Height:  5'11"
Weight:  196
40yd:  4.65

Interest Level:

Private Workout:  Yes
Private Visit to Team Facility:  Yes
Attended Proday:  No
Other: -

Quick Take:

Productive hitter who belongs in the alley in run support.  Gives 100% effort, but struggles to hang with receivers and TEs, and doesn't have a good grasp of dominating a seam.  Does seem to understand zone coverage pretty well, and is adequate when he is allowed to step back and preread an offensive play from zone.  Flashes some ability to tangle with receivers and make a play but overall is a strong tackler who plays smart and relies on decent instincts to be in position to make a play.  Day one contributor on STs.

Where He Goes in the Draft:

Bottom of the 3rd round

What is Denver's Interest In Him?


A weak class at safety is requiring Denver to do all their homework to make sure no one slips between the cracks.  Jarrett is a non-starting prospect who could go as late as the 5th round.  However, several teams have shown an interest in him, and Denver will be watching to see just how far he falls.

[Note:  All players in the table are ranked by overall grade within their round grouping, however, the round groupings are based on where this player will likely be drafted based on where teams are currently selecting in the draft.  Therefore a player is ranked within a group by his level of ability, but players in nearby groupings may have higher or lower actual grades, despite being in a different group.  Confusing enough for you? --Styg]
