Chargers selected TCU CB Jason Verrett with the No. 25 overall pick in the NFL draft.
The Chargers entered the draft with the weakest cornerback depth chart in football. We wouldn't be surprised if they select another one before the draft is through. Verrett (5-foot-9, 189) was a second-team All-American and the Big 12 co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2013, finishing his three-year career with 22 tackles for loss, nine picks, and a forced fumble across 34 starts. Verrett ran 4.38 at the Combine with a 39-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump, confirming the explosive movement he displays on tape. Quick-footed and physical, Verrett may have been the first corner drafted if he were two inches taller. Instead, his likely projection is slot corner, albeit a very good one. May 8 - 11:04 PM

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock expects the 49ers, with their eleven picks, to find a trading partner to move up. If a deal does not work out, TCU's Jason Verrett could be an option.

"I still believe, with (11) picks, they're going to trade up. And I think they're either going to target a corner or a wideout. I do not expect to see them on the clock at (30)," Mayock said. "Mostly, because the corner and wideout board will be wiped out by then. However, if they're sitting at (30), and you're talking about (Jason) Verrett on the board, I think he's by far the best value you can talk about at that point." The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Horned Frog, a top-four CB in Josh Norris' estimation, has drawn comparisons to Antoine Winfield.

One "could argue" that TCU's Jason Verrett is the draft's best CB, NFL Films' Greg Cosell said on the "Ross Tucker Podcast."

"It's hard to see a 5-foot-9 1/2 corner consistently lining up on the outside playing against the bigger wide receivers that have become a major part of the league," Cosell said, explaining why Verrett won't be the first CB selected. Cosell argued that slot corners are almost viewed as running backs during the draft process, depreciated league wide even though coaches still highly value both positions. Verrett continues to draw comparisons to Antoine Winfield, and we think he'll be an outstanding value at the end of the first round.

TCU CB Jason Verrett visited the Jets on Monday.

It's a busy week for the Horned Frogs' star, as he takes in St. Louis on Tuesday and Houston on Wednesday. Because of Verrett's 5-foot-9, 189-pound frame, it once seemed probable that he could be had on Day 2. Teams can no longer be terribly confident about that. If a team identifies Verrett as its man, it would be best to pull the trigger in the late first to guarantee his services.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang lists TCU CB Jason Verrett as the No. 28 prospect in his newest rankings.

Many draft writers speak of Verrett with admiration, but not many rank the diminutive corner as a first-rounder; at least not yet. "Verrett lacks the size so in vogue in today's NFL, but agility and ball-skills never go out of style for cornerbacks," Rang wrote. "While light, Verrett is scrappy and tenacious, making him an ideal nickel corner with the tackling ability to threaten on an occasional blitz." The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Horned Frog, a top-four CB in Josh Norris' estimation, has drawn comparisons to Antoine Winfield.

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

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.
Mar 17 - 8:05 PM

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.
Mar 6 - 1:10 PM

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.
Mar 4 - 11:18 AM

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.
