Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye] walked to the podium Saturday and looked as comfortable as any other 22-year-old draft prospect. The difference is Okoye already has a college degree - and he's just 19. Get the inside scoop on that and much more in the NFL Combine Notebook.[details]
2005 (Sophomore): The eye-opening Jarrett, who reminds USC fans of All-American Mike Williams because of his size and big-play pass catching ability, returns for his second year as a starting wide receiver as a sophomore in 2005. He is a candidate for the Biletnikoff Award and All-American honors.
The good: Big play, go-to receiver, with the ability to be a major addition to a passing game. He has developed well over the past year and shows a keen sense of coverage and openings in the secondary. He has the ability to stretch the field and draw double coverage consistently, which opens up opportunities for other receivers and runners. He is similar to big NFL receivers like the Giants' Plaxico Burgess in size, speed and running style. He is capable of fitting into any type of offense and should compete for a starting job immediately.
The bad: He can be physical off the line but needs to use his hands to better separate at the line of scrimmage and get into his routes quicker. He closes the cornerback's cushion nicely but he needs time to gather himself before breaking and is somewhat a long strider.
Outlook: He is an early difference-maker in the right setting. Jarrett has the total package and can give an offense a real boost. Clubs like the Dolphins and 49ers are interested in the first 10-12 picks, but we think he'll last a bit longer than that. He is a marginal top-12 selection with Pro Bowl ability.
