Jarrett predicted to fall to late 1st round

The Kipe, is predicting, along with everyone else on the ESPN panel, that Dwayne Jarrett will fall to the late first, if not the early 2nd round. Due to some poor route running, at the combine. Now, what do we do, if this kid is still there at 27? Have you seen the hands on him? He makes one handed catches, in his sleep. Talk about an outstanding redzone threat. Good size, average speed, more of a posession receiver, but in my opinion destined to be a great wr in the league. Reggie Bush's old teammate, and holds records in just about every recieving category at USC.

Now, I know the history of USC wideouts, is not that great in recent years, BUT, what do you guys think? We could certainly use another scorer, if TB picks up Johnson.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I dont think Jarrett would be a bad pick for us at all. Sure he doesnt have the speed but he seems to have the work ethic that Mike Williams does not have. Also, hes a solid blocker at the wide out spot. He will go over the middle and make the tough catches. And he has great body control and great hands. Other than the speed and YAC, I think hes a solid prospect to at the #2 WR spot.

Like Keyshawn minus the mouth. I wouldn't be upset with this pick. I would still rather see someone on the D-Line though.

He, Colston, and Henderson would be the best young trio in the league. They know that Colston and Henderson can start, and Jarrett would be perfect for the third spot, season. Atleast I think it would be a great trio. I just hope the team does what they think is best.

He would make a nice pick... but Steve Smith would make a better one!

Honestly if he fell that far, it's a no brainer... take him.

Definitely.
This guy is going to be a star.
Keyshawn called him out before the Rose Bowl, and Jarrett responded with an unbelievable game. He would start in front of Henderson by the end of the year.

I would trade out and let some one else take him. He can get lazy if he is not the main focus. route running is sloppy at these times. Heart leaves something to be desired.

We always say this, good players, ALWAYS flourish under good coaches. Payton is the best new coach in the league. I don't see him being lazy.

This is true and is certainly a knock on several USC wideouts. But I think with the way Drew Brees spreads the ball around and the way Payton makes sure to provide players with the opportunity to use their strengths, Jarrett would be excited to join such a high octane offense. Also, this type of situation is vaguely similar to Randy Moss when he came out. Now Jarrett is no comparison to Moss but alot of people feared the same thing with Moss but in his first few years he flourished with the ball being spread around to him and Cris Carter and JAke Reed and he also played with a chip on his shoulder for all the teams that passed on him and let him freefall through the first round. Perhaps a little extra motivation for Jarrett to play with a little more heart.

So do you consider Anquan Boldin a possession receiver? Jarrett is far more polished than Boldin coming out of college and ran the same time as him also.

I wouldn't mind either Jarrett or Ginn here. Look at Jarrett's production at USC... how could anyone complain about picking him? I think that's crazy. Williams and Jarrett are not in the same mold. I hate it when people compare the two just because they went to USC. Williams was a BIG BIG receiver... more of the possession type. Jarrett is a playmaker who isn't at big and has much more agility. Remember some people had Williams as a WR/TE because of his size... the same cannot be said of Jarrett. If you watch USC football since the Pete Carroll era, you would know... they are NOT the same player. Go by what you see, not by what you hear.
