Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Kevin Jarvis has a body that would be acceptable at the either tackle or guard position. He has average HT and WT, with limited arm length. Has wide, square shoulders and a torso that are more ideal for a guard. Carries some extra weight in his midsection. Upper and lower extremities have a higher body fat percentage, with no definition of muscle. Ankles are thick and are harder to distinguish from his calves. Suffered a knee injury in 2019 and missed all but the first 3 games.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

He has extensive experience at both the RG and RT positions, as well as games played at LT. Plays aggresively through the whistle and finishes his blocks -- the kind of guy looking to throw his defender into the dogpile. Is patient in his pass sets and does not fall for games. Has a tendency to be late on passing off/taking on stunts.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Has AA that is better suited for the guard position at the next level. Limited explosiveness and speed and is not the most effective in space. Adequate upper body and core strength are on display when he's able to latch inside his opponents. Lower body strength is limited and keeps him from driving his opponents down the field. Sinking of his hips with solid knee bend are the driving forces of his adequate body control. Build and movements suggest limited ankle flexibility. Culmination of all aforementioned qualities translate to his poor change of direction ability.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Consistently plays with a low pad level with his shoulders square to the LOS. Hand technique is fundamentally sound when he isn't facing lengthy defenders or getting long-armed. His strikes are strong but inconsistent vs adequate hand fighters. Moves his feet well laterally on reach blocks and slide protections. His limited AA vs speed rushers forces him to give up his edge too quickly or get pushed back when converted to power. Does not possess the AA to be dominant at the second level blcoks. Shows average SAQ on his pulls and down blocks. Has an average anchor but has the technique to be above-the-line with increased strength.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Kevin Jarvis was a four-year letterwinner at Michigan State, starting 39 of his of 44 games played. He played 3 of the 5 OL positions for the Spartans, which included 25 games at RG, 11 at RT, and 3 at LT. While he performed fairly well versus his B1G competition, there are question marks on whether his length and AA will translate to the NFL level. His arm length and limited hip explosiveness will be his main causes for concern, as that could leave him succeptible to 1-on-1 matchups vs physically superior players. All concerns aside, his versatility should serve his well on team's draftboards, and should mostly likely find his way onto the backend of an NFL roster or PS as a guard in a gap scheme.
