TCU CB Jason Verrett is visiting the Falcons on Friday, according to NFL network's Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport adds Verrett visited the Cardinals a few days again and also worked out with the Panthers. Previous reports stated Verrett has visits scheduled with the Steelers and Jets. He might measure in under 5'10/190 lbs, but Verrett attacks the ball at the catch point better than any corner in this class thanks to his vision and aggression. Verrett can also play in the slot or outside at a high level. Apr 11 - 10:13 AM

Date:

TCU CB Jason Verrett will visit the Cardinals between Wednesday and Thursday.

"Doing well post-shoulder surgery," adds NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Horned Frog cornerback underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum in mid-March. It shouldn't have any barring on his draft position.

TCU CB Jason Verrett has pre-draft visits scheduled with the Steelers, Jets and Cardinals.

He'll take in Pittsburgh on April 13, and visit the Big Apple one week later. Verrett's visit to Arizona hasn't found a date yet. The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Horned Frog cornerback has drawn comparisons to Antoine Winfield.

Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay believes that "two of the smallest corners in the draft" TCU CB Jason Verrett and Florida States' DB Lamarcus Joyner, are "two of the most physical cornerbacks in the draft."

McShay also mentioned in another tweet that Joyner is "a bit stronger vs. run, but Verrett is significantly faster" and "better with man-to-man coverage. If Verrett was 3 inches taller he's the 1st CB off board." While Verrett excels in both the slot and on the outside, Joyner could be used more in a cornerback/safety hybrid role where he could thrive early in nickel situations.

TCU CB Jason Verrett's shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum on Monday was a success.

Verrett reported the news post-surgery on his own Twitter feed. "I'ma be back like I never left," he tweeted. The 5-foot-9, 189-pound cornerback possesses excellent skills in both the slot and outside. He's drawn comparisons to Antoine Winfield.

TCU CB Jason Verrett's labrum surgery is scheduled for March 17, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline notes to expect Verrett to complete private workouts for teams prior to the surgery. In fact, the corner is scheduled to meet with the Panthers on Friday. Verrett decided to follow through with surgery despite some doctors suggesting he could heal naturally. He is a top four corner on Josh Norris' board.
Mar 7 - 9:53 AM

TCU CB Jason Verrett will work out for the Panthers on Friday.

Verrett will undergo shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum shortly after. The 5'9/189 lbs cornerback has displayed excellent skills from the slot and the outside, attacking the catch point thanks to great vision, leaping ability, aggression and closing speed. He would be a great pickup if the Panthers cannot resign Captain Munnerlyn, who thrived as a slot corner and blitzer last year.

TCU CB Justin Verrett will indeed have shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

"Speaking with those from Verrett’s camp this evening I found out most of the news from doctors re-examining his injured labrum was positive," Pauline writes, adding that rehabilitating the injury without surgery would be painful and might not be successful, therefore missing a portion of the 2014 is possible. "League sources told me tonight this will not effect Verrett’s draft stock," Pauline concluded. We hope it does not, as Verrett is the real deal and disrupts at the catch point despite his shorter frame.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay compared TCU CB Jason Verrett to Antoine Winfield.

Verrett is a "little guy that plays bigger than many 6-foot CBs," McShay tweeted. "He just earholed Texas Tech TE J. Amaro!" Many will be down on Verrett because his 5'9/189 pound frame does not match the trend and infatuation with taller corners. Our own Josh Norris loves Verrett's timing and willingness to win at the catch point in contested situations.

TCU CB Jason Verrett received good news from Combine doctors when they examined his shoulder injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Doctors told Verrett he may not need surgery to repair his torn labrum after all. In fact, the shoulder "looked good," according to Rapoport. "He’ll get his own expert to check it out this week, distribute info to teams." Verrett played this season with the injury and was planning on having surgery in mid-march, per Tony Pauline.

TCU CB Jason Verrett played most of the 2013 season with a torn labrum, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

The report adds Verrett will undergo shoulder surgery some time around March 17. The corner had a great Combine workout despite the injury, posting a 4.38 forty with a 1.47 10-yard split, coupled with a 39-inch vertical and 128-broad jump. He is shorter than many other corners, but Verrett finds the football and attacks it.

TCU CB Jason Verrett clocked an official forty time of 4.38 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert led all corners with a 4.37 forty, with Verrett and Rice's Phillip Gaines tying for second fastest. Verrett (5-foot-9 1/8, 189 pounds) is an undersized but tough athlete with supreme athletic ability (39-inch vertical). NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock has called him the top nickel back prospect in the draft. We'd add that the Horned Frogs' star shouldn't be pigeon-holed, as he can also handle the outside.
Feb 25 - 6:58 PM

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock ranks TCU CB Jason Verret as his top nickel back prospect.

"The only reason I wouldn't say he's a top-20 pick is because of his size," Mayock said. "He's 5-(foot)-9, probably 185 (pounds). But he's ideal for the slot, because he's quick-footed, and he's tough. Remember, the slot guys, what gets overlooked is that you've got to tackle also. And this is a tough kid." Rotoworld's Josh Norris agrees that Verret's best work is done in the slot, but thinks the Horned Frogs' star can also handle the outside. Verret will likely be a top two-round pick.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler called TCU CB Jason Verret a magnet to the ball.

"Verrett is such a scrappy player," Brugler tweeted. "Plays light and twitchy, fast and aggressive... If he were only a tad bigger." Our own Josh Norris believes Verrett does his best work from the slot, but he should not be limited just to the inside. The TCU defender will likely be a top two-round pick.
Feb 12 - 10:26 AM

TCU CB Jason Verrett has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

This isn't a surprise, as Verrett is likely the top senior prospect at his position. Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller and Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard are also impressive.
