Jason Verrett high on Denver Broncos’ NFL Draft list for Mel Kiper Jr.
He believes +TCU cornerback Jason Verrett could be the selection, given the +Denver Broncos’ lacking depth in the secondary. At 5-foot-9, 189 pounds, he might not fit the Broncos’ profile. They are leaning toward bigger corners. Kyle Fuller, at 6-foot, 194 pounds, would make sense, but likely won’t be available.
“Gilbert should go middle of the first. (Linebacker C.J.) Mosley will go anywhere from 8 to 21. Fuller is a possibility and not a probability. Verrett is an underrated player. A slot corner. You need three or four corners. The (corners) will be flying off the board,” Kiper told me.
