San Diego Chargers rookie corner Jason Verrett is rated the 5th best corner in the league through 2 weeks of the season by Pro Football Focus. The youngster has been awesome through the first 2 games.

Verrett has been incredible and we will be watching how he does throughout the season. He already was able to get his first start of the year and performed well against the Seahawks. He might have to come off of the bench in the coming week with Brandon Flowers likely coming back from his injury.

The Chargers have a nice group of corners on the roster and it is helping the team defense. John Pagano has trusted the secondary more and has been allowed to send more pressure on quarterbacks. The guys up front have also done a nice job of beating their man and getting pressure. Team game!

The Chargers may have struck gold with their first round pick again. Verrett has been great to start out the year. He looks like he has that special something to take the starting role soon and be a great starter.
