Jason Verrett Runs Official 4.38, Records 39" Vertical At Combine

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The TCU standout is standing out at the NFL Combine on Tuesday with his performance.

Despite being described on his NFL.com profile as 'diminutive, skinny-waisted and thin-boned with small hands and short arms', Jason Verrett is out-performing most cornerbacks at the NFL Combine this morning.

In both of his runs of the 40-yard-dash, Verrett recorded an unofficial 4.41, a number that was improved officially to a 4.38.That time is good enough to be one of the best times amongst cornerbacks working out at the Combine. Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert recorded a 4.37, while Ohio State's Bradly Roby recorded a 4.39.

Verrett also stood out in the vertical jump and broad jumps, recording 39" and 128" jumps, respectively, both of which were got for top 3 finishes to this point.

People across the country have been impressed with Verrett's workouts so far, as evidenced by Twitter.

So, while Verrett is definitely smaller than your prototypical NFL cornerback, he's making waves at the Combine today. As SB Nation's James Brady puts it:

Verrett was already considered a first-round talent when it came to his coverage ability, and he only built on that by proving he's able to run. It's hard to imagine him not getting selected in the first round, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him be the first cornerback of the board on draft day.
