    It's time. First-round pick Jason Verrett (shoulder) expected to make NFL debut Sunday vs. 49ers. Comes near home for Fairfield native.

    Cool, still it's hard to get excited about DB's. They are so gimped by the league rules, I almost feel sorry for them.

    I know the coverage skills are there, I just want to see how well this kid can tackle grown men. I'm a little worried

    This should be fun to watch just to see how he matches up against NFL caliber receivers.

    He'll be a rookie for a while this season, but he is smart football player. Which is great for this defensive system and I believe he can have a DROY performance down the last half of the season.

    The better his coverage skills, the less he should have to tackle. But Verrett's physicality and tackling ability were never a question in college. He might be smaller than the prototypical CB, but he doesn't play like it.
