Jason Verrett (CB), TCU

5'9" | 189 lbs.

2013 stats:

39 tackles, 3.5 TFL, 2 INT, 14 PD, 1 FF, 1 sack


1st round, 24th overall (San Diego Chargers)

What the scouts are saying:

"Verrett lacks prototypical cornerback size (5'9 1/2, 189), but is a sudden, quick-twitch mover with 4.38 wheels and an attacking style of play." (Evan Silva, Rotoworld.com)

"A tough, scrappy, undersized nickel back with potential to ascend to a No. 2 CB if he can stay in one piece. Is not the physical prototype for the position, but compensates with outstanding athleticism, blazing speed and a tenacious temperament" (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Fluid body type with smooth hips to easily turn and adjust his frame. Excellent short-area burst and flexibility to seamlessly redirect his footwork to mirror receivers in space. Very good feel on an island ? baits and drives on throws with burst and timing" (Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com)

"With Verrett, I see a defensive back who is lightning quick with his transition at the top of the route stem (plant and drive/hip turn), and he doesn’t panic in his pedal." (Matt Bowen, Bleacher Report)
