First round pick
The Chargers drafted Verrett with the 25th overall pick after the cornerback produced three standout seasons at Texas Christian University. The 5-10, 189-pounder recorded 160 tackles, 41 passes defensed and nine interceptions during his time in Fort Worth. In 2013, Verrett posted 39 tackles, 14 passes defensed, 3.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, one sack and one forced fumble. As a result, he was a second-team All-American selection, first-team All-Big 12 pick, was named the co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award as the top defensive back in the nation.
In his first interview as a Bolt, Verrett said he was hoping the Chargers would draft him. A quick-twitch athlete, he brings speed and toughness to the cornerback position.
