Draft Analysis:

Washington had a need for safety so taking a developmental one late isn't surprising, especially since Jarrett adds special teams value. He's more of a strong safety in Joe Barry's cover 2 scheme. --Mark Dulgerian

Three-year starter. Very productive and very physical. Plays the game with intensity and energy. Ready to get downhill and battle in run support with every snap. Lines up defense and does a solid job of covering tight ends, despite lack of height. Diligent in coverage to make up for lack of athleticism. Plays with bend and plus play strength, and fights through blockers to chase and finish tackles. Always sniffing at the ball with 89 tackles, eight passes defensed, three interceptions and a forced fumble in 2014.


Tight-hipped rover who is more linebacker than safety. Clunky when transitioning from backpedal. Lacking recovery speed. Frenetic. Allows excitement for the game to overcome him at times. Can get lost in coverage when plays break down and scramble ensues. Blitzing machine with limited coverage responsibilities, often locking in on tight ends and as a very deep, single-high safety.

Sources Tell Us

"Doesn't check all of the boxes we want out of our safeties, but I gave him a draftable grade. He's the type of player that DB coaches hate on paper but love on the field." -- NFC North scout

Bottom Line

Productive, yet limited, three-year starter with a nose for the ball and a willingness to play a physical brand of football. He can be a liability in coverage and will have to be covered up by scheme, but he's an absolute bulldog around the line of scrimmage and can play on special teams right away.
