Over the first third of the season, however, the most impressive coverage defender I've come across thus far has been TCU's Verrett, a 5-foot-10, 178-pound blur whose awareness and athleticism helped limit a normally explosive Oklahoma offense to just 152 passing yards and zero touchdowns through the air Oct. 5.
