The total rundown on new Bucs WR Rakim Jarrett

The Bucs’ most prominent UDFA signing is probably Syracuse’s Sean Tucker, but the team brought on another name that got some buzz during the pre-draft process in Maryland WR Rakim Jarrett. Jarrett is a speedy slot wideout who could use some development but showcased some explosiveness during his time in Maryland, and some scouts (such as The Draft Network) had him as early round value,

Here are a few things to know about the new Bucs wideout:

Height: 6’0″

Weight: 192 lbs

Age: 22

Hometown: Palmer Park, Maryland

Scouting Report (Dane Brugler, the Athletic): “A three-year starter at Maryland, Jarrett was the H receiver in head coach Mike Locksley’s spread offense, lining up almost exclusively in the slot. A DMV native, he could have played his college ball anywhere in the country but chose to stay home and follow in the footsteps of Stefon Diggs, whom he idolized growing up (also wore No. 1 like Diggs and former Terrapin D.J. Moore). Jarrett is a well-built athlete with one-step acceleration in his routes and when attacking upfield after the catch. The athletic tools are present, but his route tree lacks sophistication (relies too much on scheme to get open), and he hasn’t proven himself as a dependable pass catcher with smaller windows. Overall, Jarrett has intriguing upside with his speed, burst and the natural talent with the ball in his hands, but his game currently feels incomplete, which will make it tough for him to distinguish himself vs. already-established NFL receivers. He is a developmental prospect who has yet to play his best football, and hopefully an NFL coaching staff is willing to be patient with him.”
