Since Gary Patterson took over the reins at TCU, the Horned Frogs have emerged as one of the nation's more consistent contributors of disciplined, technically sound defenders. Verrett, a junior college transfer who led the Big 12 with 16 passes broken up and six interceptions last year, plays with the awareness we've come to expect from TCU. As he demonstrated in racking up six tackles and two passes broken up in the 20-17 loss to No. 11 Oklahoma, Verrett also possesses extraordinary quickness, balance, fluidity and hand-eye coordination. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
Against Texas on Thanksgiving night, Verrett notched his sixth interception of the season, which ranked best in the conference and top-five nationally entering December.
Just his second season in the Horned Frogs? program, the JUCO transfer looks comfortable on an island and has top-50 potential if he decides to declare early for the 2013 NFL Draft.
Verrett?s best traits are his ballhawking ability to bait throws and the timing and confidence to undercut routes, looking like a magnet to the ball. He also has good toughness and strength for the position, routinely throwing his body around and making plays in run support.
