Sam Hurd and Miles Austin...nice stories, but no way are they in the same league as Jarrett. He'd be an absolute steal at 22.
Jarrett's problem is that he's had some great high profile games but when you look a little deeper, he's been shut down pretty effectively whenever he's faced an NFL caliber corner.
He lit up Michigan but most wasn't on Hall (who is vastly overrated in his own right), Houston shut him down and Hughes even held him in check.
Watching him, I'm not sure he has the quickness to get separation at the next level and I know he doesn't have the pure speed that garners instant respect. He reminds me of Keyshawn Johnson without Johnson's ability to use his body to fight for the ball.
Obviously Johnson's the number one WR prospect but I have Meachem, Rice, Jason Hill, Ginn all over Jarrett, with maybe even Gonzalez (check out his short shuttle time) ahead of him.
