Dynasty Prospect Profile: Keyarris Garrett

By Jared Smola 9:16am EDT 4/4/16

Keyarris Garrett, WR, Tulsa

Height: 6’3

Weight: 220

Age: 23.5


Combine results:

(percentile rank among all WRs at the Combine since 1999, courtesy of mockdraftable.com):

40-yard dash: 4.53 seconds (45th percentile)

Vertical: 36.5” (61st percentile)

Broad: 10’8 (90th percentile)

3-cone: 7.3 seconds (6th percentile)

20-yard shuttle: 4.33 seconds (20th percentile)


College career:

Garrett had a yo-yoing 5-year college career. After a quiet freshman season, he turned in a promising sophomore campaign. Garrett easily led the way in catches, receiving yards and TDs for a Tulsa team that finished just 64th in passing offense.

That momentum was halted by a compound fracture to his left leg 2 games into the 2013 season that required multiple surgeries and drew a medical redshirt. Garrett was ready for the start of 2014 but missed another couple of games with injuries. He closed that year strongly, though, scoring 5 times in his final 5 contests.

Then came the monster 2015 season. Garrett topped 100 yards in 7 of 13 games, including outings of 189, 216 and 268. He posted double-digit catches 3 times and fell short of 7 grabs just 5 times.

Garrett led the entire country in receiving yards and ranked 8th in catches. His 8 TDs feel a bit disappointing, but note that Tulsa totaled just 25 as a team. Garrett accounted for 32% of the TDs, 31.5% of the receptions and 36.7% of the receiving yards.

Despite Garrett’s enviable size and athleticism — plus his big 2015 season — he’s not garnering much pre-draft hype. So I went into this film study expecting to see a raw prospect. And in some ways, that’s exactly what I got.

Tulsa ran a spread offense inspired by Baylor’s Art Briles, and Garrett wasn’t asked to run a wide array of routes. He did the vast majority of his damage on slants, curls and go routes. He’ll need to refine those and add to his repertoire at the next level.

But there’s plenty to like about Garrett. For starters, he’s a natural hands catcher who dropped just 3 of 99 catchable targets in 2015, according to Pro Football Focus. That 3.0% drop rate is one of the best in this WR class.

Garrett made a living on the long ball at Tulsa, racking up 725 yards and 7 TDs on passes traveling 20+ yards downfield last year, per PFF. He has plenty of speed, knows how to use his 6’3 frame and is a strong ball tracker.

Garrett also shows a good understanding of when to break off and adjust his route when the play breaks down.

After the catch, Garrett doesn’t offer much make-you-miss ability. (That was confirmed by his poor agility scores at the Combine.) But he’s at least willing to take on defenders, is tough to bring down and usually falls forward.

Fantasy potential:

In a WR class chock full of guys with seemingly limited upside, Garrett’s combination of size and athleticism stands out. His top similar player on MockDraftable.com is Michael Floyd, and his best comparable on PlayerProfiler.com is Dez Bryant.

Coming from a spread offense that asked him to run a limited route tree, Garrett probably isn’t ready to be more than a situational deep threat and red-zone weapon as a rookie. But with a year or 2 of seasoning, he has the physical tools to develop into a lead receiver in the mold of Brandon Marshall and Demaryius Thomas.

This is the type of player you want to be targeting in the back half of your dynasty rookie drafts.
