Bucs' Alterraun Verner on No. 1 pick: 'I probably like' Jameis Winston
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers cornerback Alterraun Verner made an appearance on NFL Network on Thursday morning and was asked for his preference between the top two quarterback prospects in this April's draft. Although the UCLA grad has seen more of Oregon's Marcus Mariota because he is a Pac-12 guy, he gave the edge to Florida State's Jameis Winston for his team's No. 1 pick in the draft, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"It's tough. I probably like Winston, from a lot of stuff I've been hearing, a lot of things I've been seeing and things like that," he said. "It's hard for me to go 100 percent there, because I haven't seen him really play. I'm going more on hearsay and things around. From his leadership qualities, that's what I've been hearing a lot. As a quarterback, you want to have that strong leader in the locker room and on the field. Somebody you know you can go out and you feel like you can do anything. From what I hear, that's the type of guy Jameis is. Like I said, the other options are good, too."

Buccaneers CB Alterraun Verner optimistic for Week 12
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers cornerback Alterraun Verner (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 12 matchup with the Bears, but he's optimistic he'll be cleared to play, Buccaneers.com reports.

"I feel good," he said after getting a limited practice in Friday. "Had a good week and was able to do a lot of things and hopefully they give me the green light to go this week. I was able to open up a lot more this week and I’m looking forward to hopefully being out there this week."

Verner has missed each of the team's last two games, but the Buccaneers defense surrendered 220 passing yards or less to each of the two starting quarterbacks they faced during that stretch.
