The San Francisco 49ers pick a player that can start from day one as their nickel corner. Jason Verrett is a fast and physical cornerback who stays close to the receiver throughout the play. He is a decent tackler who rarely allows big plays. Not a big factor against the run, mainly due to lack of strength. Verrett needs to add some muscle to improve his chances against running backs or bigger receivers.


The most difficult team to mock lucks out by landing Jason Verrett, a ferocious cornerback that if he were two inches and twenty pounds heavier, he’d be a legitimate threat at being a top-ten choice. Verrett made the Walter Camp Foundation’s All-American team in 2013 and held top-20 selection Odell Beckham, Jr. to just one reception. He’ll start out in the nickel, much like Fuller, but could eventually see time outside if needed.
