NEW YORK -- Though there were already three cornerbacks off the draft board by the time the Chargers had a chance to pick in the first round, San Diego still managed to address one of its major needs by selecting former TCU cornerback Jason Verrett with the No. 25 overall pick.'s Pete Prisco certainly seemed to like the move.

Here's what's Dane Brugler had to say before the draft: "Verrett is scrappy and loves to play sticky and physical, which will cause some penalties, but it's easy to love his confident mentality. His lack of size likely limits his NFL ceiling, but he has the easy change of direction skills, light feet and physical and mental toughness to shine in the NFL, ideally suited as an inside nickel corner.
