The San Diego Chargers draft Jason Verrett

With the 25th pick in the NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers drafted former TCU defensive back Jason Verrett.

At 5’9″, Jason Verrett is a bit undersized. What he lacks in size he makes up for with his footwork and ball skills. Big receivers gave him trouble in college and in a division that has a couple of them, it will be interesting how the rookie handles the pressure to preform right away. The Chargers will likely use Verrett in the slot during his rookie year, giving the two starting spots to Richard Marshall and Shareece Wright (no! don’t jump of a bridge Chargers fans!).

The Chargers still have needs at offensive line, linebacker, and receiver.
