CB Alterraun Verner Scouting Report

CB Alterraun Verner, UCLA
Pos. Rank: 6Grade: 2nd RoundHeight: 5-10Weight: 18940: 4.52Year: 4=Sr.

The Good: Aggressive cornerback with solid ball skills. Effectively reads the action, stays with receivers out of their breaks, and displays a burst of closing speed to the play. Physical with opponents throughout the action, quick up the field, and makes a lot of tackles against screen passes or running plays. Shows good route recognition in zone, solid hands for the interception, and very effective facing the action.

The Bad: Lacks top end speed and struggles staying downfield with receivers. Possesses solid size yet not overly big for a cornerback.

The Verdict: Verner been very productive the past four seasons at UCLA, and he is a cornerback opponents purposely stay away from. His instincts and ability to diagnose the action as it unfolds makes him a likely candidate for a zone defense. He could eventually start at the next level.
