Broaddus Breakdown (viewed Penn State, Northern Illinois, Miami-Ohio games): Plays like a free safety in the Owls' scheme but probably better suited to be a strong safety in the NFL. ... Really liked how aggressive he was once he recognized the play and came forward. Only had one missed tackle that I saw and that came on the first play of the game against Penn State when he was stiff-armed in the open field. In other opportunities he was able to come forward, strike a blow and bring the ball carrier down. ... Has a unique ability to cause turnovers. In the three games I studied, he caused a fumble in all of them. He is not afraid to hit you and try to rip the ball free. Thought he did a solid job of reading the play, finding the football and making the tackle. Will step up in the hole and be physical. ... Did have a play in the running game where he did not react quick enough to the ball on the edge and the Penn State back was able to go around the corner for a touchdown. ... In pass coverage, did not see a quick-footed player nor one that has a tight back pedal. His feet and technique are really all over the place. As he pedals, its like he is reading the route and he doesn't stay in a straight line. Did see him have one opportunity in coverage against Penn State in the red zone when he broke off the hash, found the receiver, then worked him out of bounds. Really gave the quarterback no room to deliver the football. ... Can tell he is the quarterback of the defense. You see him directing others when the offense runs motions in the formation. Simliar size to DeAndre McDaniel of Clemson but is a more physical player. Speed is similar to Quinton Carter of Oklahoma. Ahmad Black of Florida is much quicker but doesn't have the height. ... If I had to make a choice of these strong safety types, Jarrett would be the player I would most likely draft with Rahim Moore of UCLA the true free safety.
