Scouting Report
Jamison had two years of eligibility left at Rutgers, but the native of Stark, Fla., decided to declare for the draft when he said he was given a third-round grade by NFL officials. Jamison, the sixth Rutgers player to leave early since 2008, also spoke with former Scarlet Knights standout and Super Bowl champion Ray Rice about making the leap after his redshirt sophomore season. Jamison has a similar body type to Rice and has the speed to get to the edge, but there are questions about his ability to attack the line and his durability. Plus, an ankle injury slowed him in the final three games of this season, totaling 85 yards on 37 carries as Rutgers lost them all. Jamison broke onto the scene late in the 2011 season with a 200-yard effort against Cincinnati and an MVP performance in the Pinstripe Bowl, rushing for 131 yards and two touchdowns. He went on to run for more than 100 yards in each of his first five games of 2012, finishing with 1,075 and earning All-Big East second-team honors. He also proved capable of catching the ball out of the backfield, making 28 catches for 323 yards and two scores after having only eight receptions as a freshman. Jamison's pass blocking needs work, but he has outstanding balance and vision. A likely middle-round pick, Jamison didn't do much to improve his stock with his results at the NFL combine. He didn't rank among the top 15 wide receiver prospects in the 40-yard dash (4.68 seconds), bench press (20 reps), vertical jump (29 inches) or broad jump (110 inches). However, Jamison said he was pleased with his improved 40 times at his pro day on March 13 - 4.64 and 4.6.
