Redskins Select Safety Kyshoen Jarrett

Jarrett (5-10, 200 lbs) was a three-year starter at Virginia Tech and was named third-team all-ACC. Jarrett will likely contribute early on special teams.

Scouts take:

Three-year starter. Very productive and very physical. Plays the game with intensity and energy. Ready to get downhill and battle in run support with every snap. Lines up defense and does a solid job of covering tight ends, despite lack of height. Diligent in coverage to make up for lack of athleticism. Plays with bend and plus play strength, and fights through blockers to chase and finish tackles. Always sniffing at the ball with 89 tackles, eight passes defensed, three interceptions and a forced fumble in 2014.

Productive, yet limited, three-year starter with a nose for the ball and a willingness to play a physical brand of football. He can be a liability in coverage and will have to be covered up by scheme, but he’s an absolute bulldog around the line of scrimmage and can play on special teams right away.

40-yard dash: 4.53 and 4.48 seconds
20-yard short shuttle: 4.23 seconds
Three-cone drill: 7.06 seconds
