Rakim Jarrett, Memphis (6’2”, 200)
What Scouts Say:
Open field threat, with the speed, vision, and balance to create dynamic angles after the catch. Wins in the short and intermediate areas of the field, especially in off-zone or with a cushion. Has the ability to win deep, a lot of his production came on longer passes in 2021. He has a smaller route tree.
What We Saw:
Another JAG, who will be a depth piece come September. If I was looking for the next USFL breakout WR, we can talk. Until then, meh. Doesn’t do much for me.
Jarrett is a fine prospect, nothing stood out to me as “special” or elite and I think his production reflects that. He is a jack of most trades, but a master of none in my eyes. Jarrett is a speed demon off the line who is not afraid to steamroll the DB who tries to put their hands on him. Shows effort on the blocking side, but tends to get outmuscled once contact is initiated when he doesn’t have momentum on his side. Decent hands in the short and intermediate but tended to use his pads and chest to bring in deep balls. I can see him as a low reception depth piece for your team that can be a plug-and-play when a team has a WR injured. Rumors are day 3 pick, so either take the lotto ticket in the 4th or wait till he hits waivers and let him sit on a taxi squad and see if anything develops.
