Actually, Daryll Green is 5-8. Verrett is very fast and one of the quickest players in the draft this year. He had one of the fastest 20 yard shuttles at the combine. He has tremendous closing speed and a 39" vertical leap. And, when you watch the film, he jumps out as an amazing corner. He has great skill at closing and getting his hand in front of the receiver to bat the ball away. There are other corners I would like them to try, but if they go with Verrett, I won't be disappointed because I think he flat-out can play. I don't think anyone out there can out-run him or out-cut him.
