Jerrard Tarrant Scouting Report
Jerrard Tarrant
Jerrard Tarrant - Georgia Tech (HT: 6-0⅜ - WT: 204)
Combine 40: 4.62 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 16 of 35

Positives: Has good mix of size and speed, solid frame and speed is good for size... Has above-average production in two years starting at Georgia Tech (116 tackles, five interceptions)... Very good ball skills, has natural hands and the ability to pluck the ball from its highest point... Is tough and physical in run support, is not afraid to mix it up in traffic... Is a good zone defender, reads keys well and has enough range to cover the middle of the field pretty effectively.

Negatives: Was suspended indefinitely in 2008 after being charged with rape, but was later cleared of charges, some character concerns may still linger... Looks a little stiff in the hips, looks as if his feet are much quicker than his hips... Not a great man coverage defender, lacks fluidity to hang with quicker receivers at the break... Will bite on play action and double moves, discipline looks well below-average, needs to get better at studying offenses and tendencies... Needs to work on block shedding, takes poor angles to the ball and can get knocked out of position by bigger blocker.
