The young man stands 6’4″ and weighs 316 pounds. He started for four years during his time at Slippery Rock, which is located near Pittsburgh.
It’s common knowledge that the Birds are looking to add a right guard who could also play center or vice versa.
Taking a close look at Fusco makes sense because they might have to draft him If they’re not able to grab Florida’s Mike Pouncey or one of the other top offensive linemen in the first or second rounds.
Wilmington News Journal reporter Geoff Mosher says the Birds will put Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett through a workout on April 6th. The young man has additional workouts coming up with the Broncos, the Giants, the Jets and the Rams.
Jarrett ran a 4.65 in the forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine. His vertical jump was 30″ and his standing broad jump was 9’5″. The Temple Owl safety threw up 225 pounds on the bench press 14 times.
As you can see, his numbers don’t jump out at me, but Jarrett is a solid football player, who has good instincts and high football I.Q. If the Birds let Quintin Mikell walk, they’re going to need another safety on the roster.
There’s a chance he could be grabbed in rounds five, six or seven by the Birds.
