How's The Rookie Receiver Lookin'? - Dwayne Jarrett

The careers of Anthony Gonzalez, Sidney Rice, Dwayne Jarrett, and Steve Smith will forever be linked to Craig Davis' in the eyes of San Diego Chargers fans. AJ Smith and his group of scouts made the determination that Craig Davis was going to be a better fit for the team than Gonzalez, Rice, Jarrett, or Smith would. While it is certainly too early to tell, it will be interesting to see who among the group emerges as elite players.

The this exclusive BoltHype feature, we'll track the progress each player makes throughout the season. Today we'll begin our look at former USC Trojan and current Carolina Panthers wide receiver, Dwayne Jarrett.

For some insight into Dwayne Jarrett's progress thus far, I've enlisted the help of Carolina Panthers beat writer, Pat Yasinskas of the Charlotte Observer. Here is what he had to say:

It's tough to give you much because they're only a couple days into camp and
he's not had much of a chance to do anything. But here's my best: The
Panthers are bringing Jarrett along slowly, letting Keary Colbert and Drew
Carter work with the first team until the rookie learns the offense. But
Carter and Colbert aren't legitimate starters and the team expects Jarrett
to claim the starting job by the end of the preseason.

Note: This post will be updated throughout the season so be sure to check back!
