Rakim Jarrett Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Jarrett has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- Very good hands, accepts the ball fluidly on most throws and is ready to make a play afterward. Makes catches in traffic, even going up over taller defenders with vertical and toughness
- Jarrett has the straight-line speed to stretch the middle of the field, and he consistently runs away from defenders in catch-and-run situations
- He shows elite initial quickness off the line of scrimmage, and he has just enough strength to be able to escape the jam at the next level. He’s a coordinated hands catcher who effectively tracks the ball downfield
- Jarrett is small – probably smaller than his advertised height and has limited strength. Will likely be viewed as a slot-only player at the next level
- Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest
- While Jarrett is a willing blocker his poor technique and small stature seriously limits his effectiveness
- Jarrett has limited arm length and as a result, his catch radius is not ideal

Would Rakim Jarrett Fit on the Packers?
The Packers do have a need for playmakers in the slot receiver role. Because of that, Jarrett is base line a decent fit for the Packers. Matt LaFleur’s offense could use an elusive and athletic receiver in a variety of ways. His willingness to block shows he at least gives an effort which is more that can be said for some players.

If GM Brian Gutekunst wants to draft Jarrett, it would be in the later rounds. We know from last year that Gutekunst will look at receivers in the later rounds and maybe Jarrett becomes a player he takes a chance on in day 3 of the draft.
