2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jaiquawn Jarrett, FS, Temple

Jaiquawn Jarrett has not just been around to see the Temple Owls turn around their football program, he has been a huge part of their success. In 2007 the Owls were coming off of a 1-11 season and a bunch of freshmen were forced into action. Jarrett was one of the defensive players who made it clear that Temple would not finish 1-11 again any time soon. Jarrett started a half dozen games as a freshman and was already using his size and speed to make some big hits. Jarrett started every game as a sophomore, tallying a team high 88 tackles and adding three interceptions and three fumble recoveries. Once again as a junior, Jarrett was a full-time starter and put up very similar numbers to his sophomore season.

Jarrett has been flying under the radar for most of his career, but Temple reached a bowl game for the first time since 1979 during the 2009 campaign and Jarrett finally started getting some recognition. In 2010 Temple started off the season with some shaky defensive efforts, but a solid showing against Penn State put Jarrett's name back in the spotlight.

More important than a loss to Penn State is Temple's record in the Mid-American Conference. At 3-1, the Owls have a shot to win the East and take home their first ever MAC championship. That could happen if Jarrett continues to make big plays. At 6-2 and 202 pounds, he is a big hitter who can compete with anybody. If he continues to put up a solid effort game in and game out, Jarrett could be off the board in the second or third round.

12/20 Update: The Owls' season continued to go quite well up until their last two games. Temple was 8-2 and eyeing a MAC Championship before falling to Ohio and Miami in their last two games. Unfortunately for the Owls and Jarrett, those two losses cost the 8-4 team a bowl trip. Jarrett will not get a chance to showcase his skills in a bowl game, but he ended the season with a team high 74 tackles and added two interceptions.
