Verner has shown flashes of being a stellar cornerback, but also has struggled at times as well.
In his rookie season, playing across from Cortland Finnegan, Verner started 12 of the 16 games he played, and finished the season with 101 tackles, three interceptions, and one forced fumble.
The next season, he was relegated to the slot, with Jason McCourty emerging as the starter. Verner still did pretty well that season in his reduced role, though he only reeled in one interception.
With Finnegan moving on to St. Louis, Verner got his chance to regain his starting job. This time around, he struggled mightily, partially due to the ineptitude of the safety position.
Overall, Verner has been a pretty solid pick, but he'll need a bounce back year if he wants to keep his starting job, especially this being a contract year for him.
