RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Verrett missed most of the 2016 season after partially tearing his ACL four games into the new campaign. Now healthy, Verrett figures to continue his reign as one of the most unappreciated young cornerbacks in the league. While he'll have to jockey for the No. 1 role with 2016 breakout star Casey Hayward, together the two figure to make up one of the more devastating secondaries in the NFL.
A 2014 first-round pick and one of the league's best young cornerbacks, Verrett led the Chargers in interceptions (three) and passes defended (12) in 2015, when he also racked up 47 tackles. Now that Eric Weddle has moved on, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role in the secondary and is the clear-cut No. 1 starting cornerback on the Chargers.
Verrett is entering his second season with huge expectations. He had 19 tackles and one game-saving interception in the six games he played as a rookie, and he already has a starting spot opposite Brandon Flowers locked up heading into 2015.
Verrett was drafted to be an impact corner and is expected to get a lot of playing time as a rookie, but the signing of Brandon Flowers means that the Chargers have the luxury of developing Verrett slowly if they desire.
