Professional careerEdit

Jarrett was rated as the 71st best defensive tackle in the 2017 NFL Draft by NFLDraftScout.com.[6] Lance Zierlein of NFL.com predicted that he would go undrafted and be a priority free agent, stating "If he can play with better pad level and improve his hand usage to take full advantage of his size, he might be able to improve enough to create an opportunity for himself with a team that is looking for size".[7]
