Second-round sleeper: UCLA CB Verner

I was all over new Jaguars DT Tyson Alualu going in the first-round a week ago (though admittedly, I expected it to happen in the 20s via a trade down, and not Jacksonville at 10th overall).

Similarly, keep an eye on UCLA corner Alterraun Verner today, specifically in the second round. You won’t find him in many, or any, mock drafts in this area. But teams like his skill set, which is similar to new Browns CB Joe Haden, the first corner taken.

Verner isn’t big (5-foot-10, 189 pounds) but has risen up some draft boards. Would not be surprised at all to see him go in the next 32 picks.
