Former Clemson defensive tackle Grady Jarrett is one of twelve NFL rookies that could surprise at NFL training camps according to SI.com.

"Jarrett's free-fall to the fifth round was certainly a surprise to us, as we had him ranked 61st overall in this draft class," SI.com said. "He was certainly underrated due to his size (6'1," 304 pounds), which probably took him out of the running for most 3–4 and hybrid teams. But new Falcons coach Dan Quinn has a knack for taking unusually-sized linemen and making the most out of them, and Jarrett certainly has a lot to work with. He plays much bigger than his size when he keeps his pads low, and over time, he could have a Geno Atkins-level impact."

Jarrett had 207 tackles, 29.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, 37 quarterback pressures, one pass break up, two caused fumbles and four recovered fumbles in his college career. Jarrett had a career-high three and a half tackles for loss and a forced fumble in the 40-6 rout of Oklahoma in the Russell Athletic Bowl. He also was voted as one of the football team's permanent captains for 2014. As a senior, he had 73 tackles and 12 quarterback pressures.

His personal achievements in 2014 included being named third-team All-American by Athlon, All-Bowl team AP, All-Bowl team NFL.com, First-team All-ACC by ACC Coaches and First-team All-ACC ESPN.com.
