San Diego Chargers DC John Pagano shared his thoughts on rookie corner Jason Verrett over the radio yesterday and he is excited:

He tackles and he comes up and he loves to hit. He doesn’t look like he plays small. He plays big. Being 5-foot9 1/2, it’s something that I guess any of the guys that are shorter players in the league are always going to have to deal with, but you see him out there, he’s a football payer. He’s quick. You saw him Monday doing those drills. You can see his feet, and you can see how he moves. It’s good to get him out there on the field and get him going. – John Pagano via Mighty 1090

Verrett has not been able to join the rest of the team to do all the drills, but he is working through individual drills at the moment. The coaching staff and other players on the roster can see his quickness and speed.

    I like he’s been tlkn to weddle. Weddle blankets te’s a solid foot taller than him. Hope he gets in touch with Asante or grimes to learn what is more important for smaller dbs

    His quickness should help in getting to the ball BEFORE it reaches the receiver. I’m hoping him and Steve Williams will be great assets to our secondary. With a better pass rush this year, I see a lot more broken plays and interceptions coming!

    Well John, it’s nice that you can see that, let’s just hope you are able to help him steadily progress into becoming an all-pro corner in a year or two. I have my doubts given that I can’t name one young defensive player whose level of play has risen under Pagano’s tutelage (Wright? Inconsistent. Reyes? Flopped in the first year where he was given starting snaps. English? Bust.) but in order to keep that DC job, you have to get it right eventually.
