Because if he was 2 inches taller he'd be a Top 15 pick or better? Because he's an outstanding cover guy with tremendously fluid hips and incredible athleticism who can help shutdown the Percy Harvin's of the NFL. Because he'd step in as the slot corner right away from the get-go as a rookie.
Alterraun Verner was one of the best cornerback's in the NFL this past season, he's an inch taller and weighs about 5 pounds less than Verrett. Kyle Fuller is 2 inches taller than Verrett, 1 pound heavier and doesn't have the same amount of incredible deep speed.
Verrett is a guy who can handle quickness or deep speed, he was rarely out of position and got his hands more on passes than any other cornerback in the draft.
especially with the receiver in our division ????????????
This really confuses me. The 49ers aren't in the NFC North, they'll have to defend Percy Harvin, Tavon Austin, Ted Ginn, Doug Baldwin....etc. Average to smaller receivers, guys with great quickness or speed, the kind of players you want someone like Verrett to defend with.
