|Verrett was named Big 12 co-defensive player of the year after a stellar senior season in which he finished with two interceptions and 14 pass breakups despite not having many balls thrown his way to share the honors with Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat. Although TCU underachieved with a 4-8 record after being ranked 20th in the preseason, Verrett ended his career on a high note in a 41-38 loss to Baylor on Nov. 30 by limiting Bears star Antwan Goodley - who led the conference with 13 TD receptions - to one catch for 12 yards. Verrett also showed flashes of his talent in the season opener against LSU star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., although he suffered a torn labrum Sept. 12 while defending Big 12 leading receiver Jace Amaro of Texas Tech. Verrett was sensational at the NFL combine, with a 40-yard dash time of 4.38 seconds that was the fifth-fastest among all players and tied for second among defensive backs. His 6.69-second time in the 3-cone drill was third-best among cornerbacks, his 4.00-second 20-yard shuttle run time tied for the best mark in his position group and his broad jump (10 feet, 8 inches) and vertical leap (39.0 inches) also tied him for third among corners. Verrett drew raves from Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, but the TCU product unfortunately isn't quite as big as the former NFL superstar. Verrett's lack of size is a concern to NFL scouts, who seem to be otherwise enamored with his ball skills.
