Verrett Receives Senior Bowl Invite
Dec. 6, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU All-America cornerback Jason Verrett has received an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl Jan. 25 in Mobile, Ala.
The Senior Bowl features the nation's top senior draft prospects on teams coached by National Football League staffs. Senior Bowl practices and game week festivities are attended by more than 800 general managers, head coaches, assistant coaches, scouts and other front office personnel from all 32 NFL teams.
In his final game as a Horned Frog, Verrett limited Antwan Goodley, Baylor's leading receiver, to just one catch for 12 yards. Verrett also broke up two passes in the process.
Earlier this season, Verrett held Texas Tech's Eric Ward, who has 72 receptions, without a catch for the entire game. Goodley and Ward are two of the Big 12's top-five receivers. When lined up against LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., Verrett allowed just one reception. He totaled seven stops, including a sack, while adding three pass breakups versus LSU.
