Scott Wright's answer to my question


Recommended Posts

Where do you think UCLA CB Alterraun Verner will be selected? I would love to see him in a Falcons uniform next year. Do you think he would fit in well with Atlanta and what are his strengths and weaknesses?


Atlanta, GA

Alterraun Verner kind of falls into the “Good College Player, Average Pro Prospect” category. Despite a very productive career for the Bruins Verner just doesn’t have the type of size or speed that you look for at the next level. An instinctive ballhawk with a lot of confidence and solid intangibles, Verner is more of a late round possibility who could carve out a niche as a backup in the pros.

As for the Falcons, they just invested a relatively early draft pick on a very similar player (Chris Owens) so I’m not sure Verner would be a good fit in Atlanta.
