Dwayne was drafted in the 2nd round (45th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers, he was the eighth receiver selected. Originally projected as a first-round pick, Jarrett's stock fell due to his unremarkable time in the 40-yard dash and stigma from comparisons to fellow former-Trojan receiver Mike Williams, similar to the teammate-similarity-stigma that Cedric Benson dealt with leading up to the being drafted in being compared to Ricky Williams.
He often draws similarities to former Pro Bowl WR Keyshawn Johnson. Both are considered "possession" receivers and both played at USC. Although Johnson had publicly stated that he looked forward to mentoring Jarrett, it was not to be as Johnson was released three days after Jarrett was drafted, preventing the two from playing together. Coincidently, Johnson had initially stated that Jarrett would be best served by staying at USC an extra year and entering the draft as a senior.
Jarrett credits his ability to growing up and playing catch with his uncle who "forced me to make one-handed catches."[
During his sophomore year, Jarrett shared a Los Angeles apartment with quarterback Matt Leinart.
Jarrett's cousin, Desmond Belton, currently is a wide receiver at the University of Idaho. Like Jarrett, he was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Jarrett has had some of his best college games against USC's rival, the University of Notre Dame, he credits this to how he was treated during the high school recruiting process: "They came down to recruit me, they talked to my coaches and everything. They didn't think I was intelligent enough to go to their school. That was kind of an insult to me. I've always had a little grudge against them
