Giants look at, at least, one safety

I’ll try to make the title of the post more confusing next time.

The Giants have scheduled a visit with S Jaiqwaun Jarrett. Given the Giants penchant for drafting players with difficult names to spell, this move would fit in nicely.

Mostly kidding. Jarrett is a solid player expected to go somewhere between the third and fifth round.

Here’s part of a scouting report from National Football Post

Possesses a nice-sized frame for the position and looks a little thicker on tape than his measurables would suggest. Has started every game for the Owls over the past three seasons and durability is not an issue with him. Is a smooth, balanced defensive back who does a great job keeping his feet under him in his drop. Looks very natural when asked to sit into his back-pedal, quickly and cleanly gets good depth in coverage and demonstrates the ability to plant his foot in the ground and click and close on the football. Allows his footwork to get a bit overextended when driving on the throw, but has the skill set to quickly clean himself up in that area with some NFL coaching. Is a fluid, flexible athlete who does a nice job when asked to turn and run, getting back up to top-end speed quickly and doesn’t waste much motion at all out of any transition in coverage. Generates a good burst for himself out of his breaks and his initial first step allows him to put himself in position to make a lot of plays on the football. Lacks ideal top-end speed and looks more like a 4.5 guy on tape. However, plays faster than his timed speed would indicate because of his impressive change of directions skills

I’ll try to put something together a little more in depth like I’m doing with other prospects the Giants have shown an interest in (that’s been reported).
