I don’t recall a draft with more mixed opinions, projections and grades than this year’s, which should make for an exciting draft in May that is full of unpredictability. With one of the deepest draft classes I have evaluated, there is talent to be had in every round and ample opportunity for teams to fill holes and acquire talent.

The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine drew to its close Tuesday when the final two groups, composed alphabetically from 59 of the 2014 draft class’ top defensive backs, took the field for their on-field workouts.

While there were a good number of high-profile prospects from other groups who chose to sit out part or all of the combine workouts, just about all the top defensive backs were full participants Tuesday. Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward was forced to sit out with a foot injury, as reported by Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net, but top DBs such as Oklahoma State’s Justin Gilbert, Alabama’s Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Ohio State’s Bradley Roby went through a full set of drills in Indianapolis.

Cornerback is emerging as one of the most important positions in football. With more and more NFL offenses putting four- and five-receiver sets on the field, it is imperative to have depth at the cornerback position.

I put more emphasis than many people do on cornerbacks’ run-stopping ability considering the need for defensive backs to be able to stop the run when playing against the spread. Physicality was also a trait that I looked for in my evaluations. It is important to be able to disrupt routes and timing of the offense with a good physical presence in press coverage.

The 2014 NFL Draft is nearly a year away and the 2013 season is yet to begin, but we at BBD are pushing forward and continuing to give in-depth analysis of several players to look for as the offseason progresses.

One player who should be on every Buffalo Bills fan’s radar is TCU CB Jason Verrett. Verrett could possibly be the top-rated cornerback to enter the 2014 NFL draft and fans should make an effort to watch him play. As many Bills fans are aware, Buffalo did not draft a cornerback in the 2013 draft and Verrett may be on Buffalo’s early short list.

The cornerback position could potentially be very high on Buffalo’s draft needs. Verrett represents a first-round selection who would nicely compliment Stephon Gilmore and give Buffalo two young, productive cornerbacks.

Let’s take a closer look at potential Buffalo Bills first-round pick Jason Verrett.
