2014 NFL Draft Rumors: TCU CB Jason Verrett possibly moving to wide receiver?

TCU Horned Frogs cornerback Jason Verrett has become one of the nice surprises of the 2014 NFL Draft season. After a standout career for head coach Gary Patterson, Verrett had an outstanding Scouting Combine performance. But, as NFL.com’s Gil Brandt points out, Verrett’s future might be a little bit brighter at the next level on the opposite side of the ball.

“One suggestion I have — and this is just a suggestion — is that he might consider working out at another position to see if he could be a Wes Welker-type of wideout,” Brandt wrote Friday in his pro day blog. “He has a lot of the tools to succeed there — he runs under a 4.4 in the 40, is very strong, and he can jump — and receiver is a position where his lack of height might not be an issue.”

As Brandt mentioned, lack of height would be one attribute that could hinder his chances for a successful career as a defensive back, but could ultimately be used to his advantage catching passes.
