- Carolina Panthers 2007 - 2010
Wideout Dwayne Jarrett played his college football for the University of Southern California Trojans before being selected in round two of the 2007 NFL Draft. The Carolina Panthers chose him as the 45th overall pick.
At USC, Jarrett was a two-time All-American. He finished his college career as the school’s all-time reception leader with 216 and the Pac-10’s all time touchdown reception leader with 41. In 2007, he was selected as the offensive MVP of the Rose Bowl, notching 203 receiving yards and grabbing two TDs.
In 2007, he played in seven contests, making six catches for 73 yards. He was inactive for seven of the team’s first games. On March 11, 2008, he was arrested on a DWI charge after running a red light and failing a sobriety test.
Jarrett stands six-foot-four and weighs 219 pounds, making him good sized for a NFL receiver. He’s got a good but not outstanding burst off the line and average top-speed. He can catch the ball away from his body, make acrobatic moves and knows how to shield defenders with his big frame. He’s not much of a deep threat and his moves after the catch are average at best. Jarrett’s route running at this point is weak, but with his size he could be a fine red zone threat.
