NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter ranked Carolina's UDFA class No. 5 in the NFL.

This showing was crucial, because the Panthers tied the Saints with a league-low five draft picks. " I guess Jeremy Cash was considered a 'tweener by NFL teams, but I'll take him on my team anytime," Reuter wrote. "Whether he plays safety or linebacker for the Panthers, he'll make plays. Keyarris Garrett was another find after the draft who will be in the mix for the fifth receiver spot." The analyst believes UDFA signee TE Jake McGee is a superior player to Day 3 pick Beau Sandland right now, and further thinks LB Jared Norris "should stick as a capable inside/outside linebacker and special-teams force."

Panthers signed Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett.

Garrett (6'3/220) led the nation in receiving as a fifth-year senior, catching 96 passes for 1,588 yards (16.5 YPR) and eight TDs. Garrett combines a wide catch radius (34 1/2-inch arms) with Dez Bryant-like Combine numbers, running 4.53 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump. Garrett's weaknesses are his inconsistent hands and routes. He's also old for a rookie, turning 24 in September. Garrett is still an exciting talent with big-time vertical tools and lots of experience working underneath. He has a chance to develop into an NFL starter.

For a second time this draft season, CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang offered a comparison between Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett and Martavis Bryant.

Rang initially made his Garrett-Bryant comparison after the latter was suspended in early March. He stands by it a month-and-a-half later. "Boasting long arms, explosive leaping ability and a deceptive long-stride which helps him get behind defenders," the analyst wrote, "Garrett reminds me a bit of the Steelers' talented (but currently suspended) Martavis Bryant in his ability to make big plays down the sidelines." Rang is also of the opinion that the 96-1588-8 receiving line he posted in 2015 was not merely the product of weaker competition, calling it "very much a reflection of his talent."

The Backyard Banter's Matt Harmon says Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett's "size, speed and legitimate upside are real" and calls him the "unicorn" of the receiver class.

Garrett posted a cool 96-1,588-8 line last year, taking 97.6 percent of his snaps on the right side of the field, mostly on the line of scrimmage. Like Corey Coleman, Garrett's route tree is limited right now, because the Baylor-now-Tulsa system simplifies the assignments of its receivers. We know Garrett can run the deep route, and he gets you off of that with nifty curl routes. Outside of that, he'll need to be taught. Harmon believes Garrett "needs some cleaning up in regards to his technique and mental approach to the game" because he struggled against zone coverage. The 6-foot-3 1/2, 221-pounder with 34-inch arms had one of this year's most underrated Combine showings, running a nice 4.53 forty for his size with a broad jump of 128". "...there’s no denying that he is a unique entity in this draft class for even giving us the opportunity to imagine a high ceiling for him to hit," Harmon wrote.

Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett has visits set up with the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Per Pauline, "there's a definite buzz building" around Garrett, who came into the season with a UDFA grade from scouts. He forced them to reconsider after posting a 96-1,588-line last year and running a respectable 4.53 second forty for a 6-foot-3 1/2, 221-pounder at the Combine. So much so that the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals (who sent a WR coach) were in Tulsa last week to watch Garrett work out at his pro day. Garrett logged a vertical jump of 38 inches (36.5 inches at combine). "He then had a terrific positional workout," Pauline wrote. "Scouts also love the fact the big-bodied receiver comes with 34 inch arms."
Mar 14 - 8:17 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett, "provid[ed] ample evidence that his production at Tulsa was not simply a byproduct of weak competition [at the NFL Scouting Combine]."

Rang floats Garrett as one possible draft option for the Steelers as they look to replace the suspended Martavis Bryant. Wrote the analyst, "Garrett has a bulkier build than the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Bryant, but he is also a long-strider who accelerates smoothly, tracks the ball well over his shoulder and has a track record of production." Garrett measured in at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds in Indianapolis. He went on to record a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, plus a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.33 seconds and a 60-yard shuttle mark of 11.72 seconds. He's coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded a 96-1588-8 receiving line.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline observed that during position drills at the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday, Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett "looked natural, fluid and had no wasted motion."

Wrote Pauline, "Garrett effortlessly caught the deep pass and was dependable in the short field." This mirrors what CBS Sports analyst Rob Rang was writing in the lead-up to the combine when he noted that the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder's "athleticism matches eye-popping production." At the combine, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds while also logging 4.33 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle and 11.72 seconds in the 60-yard shuttle. As for the production side of the equation, Garrett caught 96 passes for 1,588 yards and eight touchdowns for the 2015 campaign.
Feb 28 - 6:45 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang wrote that Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett's "athleticism matches eye-popping production."

Among the athletic traits that Rang keys in on, Garrett's "height, speed and body control." The 6-foot-4, 207-pound wideout's numbers are blinding enough in their own right. Last season, he logged 96 catches for 1,588 yards and eight touchdowns. NFL Media's Chad Reuter doesn't see him being drafted in the first four rounds at this point, but he cracks Rang's list of underrated combine prospects for a reason and could rise through the process if he's able to impress in Indianapolis next week.

In 2015, Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett was only targeted four times on the left side of the field out of 161 total targets.

This resulted in just one catch out of his 96 this season. This is just one example of college offenses allowing a player to focus on one spot in an attempt to master that alignment for route and release purposes. West Virginia did the same thing with Kevin White a few years ago. Garrett was also targeted 53 times 20-plus yards downfield.

Tulsa redshirt senior WR Keyarris Garrett caught eight passes for 137 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 55-52 loss to Virginia Tech in the Camping World Independence Bowl.

Garrett was limited by apparent cramping in the second half of the contest, but it didn't stop him from catching a 36-yard touchdown catch with 3:47 remaining to draw Tulsa to within 55-52. They wouldn't score again. The 6-foot-4, 207-pound redshirt senior turned in a fantastic 2015 season overall, catching 96 passes for 1,588 yards and eight touchdowns. While he's finished with his college career proper, he's accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game as he works toward the 2016 NFL Draft.

Tulsa junior WR Joshua Atkinson caught 11 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 55-52 loss to Virginia Tech in the Camping World Independence Bowl.

Atkinson scored on a 21-yard touchdown catch with 7:35 remaining in the contest. It drew Tulsa to within 55-45 after a successful two-point conversion. They would score another touchdown several minutes later, but couldn't find pay-dirt on their final offensive drive. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound junior closes out the 2015 campaign having caught 76 passes for 1,071 yards and five touchdowns.
Sat, Dec 26, 2015 10:57:00 PM

Tulsa redshirt junior QB Dane Evans completed 27-of-44 passes for 374 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 55-52 loss to Virginia Tech in the Camping World Independence Bowl.

In addition to his work through the air, Evans also rushed for a nine-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He tried valiantly to overcome a 24-point second-half deficit, but Tulsa's offense sputtered out on their final drive as they looked to tie or take the lead. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound redshirt junior finishes the 2015 campaign having thrown for 4,332 yards with a 25/8 TD/INT ratio. He surpassed 350 yards passing six times. Despite their offensive loveliness, the Golden Hurricane end the season with a 6-7 record.

Tulsa redshirt senior WR Keyarris Garrett accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Garrett is a monstrous (6'3/215 lbs) receiver who displays straight line speed and some contested catch success. Even with another Tulsa receiver threat going down, Garrett hasn't lost a step. He owns a 35 percent market share of the school's receiving yards. From a pure numbers standpoint, Garrett has caught 74 passes for 1,164 yards and six touchdowns. He suffered a compound left leg fracture in 2013.

Tulsa redshirt senior WR Keyarris Garrett caught nine passes for 168 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 49-38 loss to Cincinnati.

Garrett wouldn't notch his touchdown until just 15 seconds remained in Saturday's game. The 46-yard score came easily enough, as he slipped past the Cincinnati defensive back, gained five or six yards of separation and hauled in the deep pass along the right sideline before coasting into the end zone untouched. The 6-foot-4, 207-pound redshirt senior had been limited to just six catches for 30 yards combined in his last two games prior to breaking out for his fifth game of at least 100 yards receiving in Saturday's defeat at the hands of the Bearcats. For the season, Garrett's working to a 74-1164-6 receiving line across 10 games played.

Tulsa freshman RB Ramadi Warren rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries in Saturday's 49-38 loss to Cincinnati.

As of Halloween, Warren had rushed for just 142 yards and a touchdown in three games (he's missed four due to injury). In his two games since, though, the 5-foot-9, 175-pound freshman's danced his way to 307 yards with five touchdowns. 247 Sports graded him as a three-star recruit out of high school. Tulsa wraps up the 2015 campaign with games against Navy and Tulane.
