Things have been rough for the Titans defense this season, but Alterraun Verner has been a bright spot.
There are not many things going right with this defense this year, but Alterraun Verner has had a really good year. In fact, he is playing so well that PFF (via ESPN In$ider) says that ATV is the 4th best underrated player in the league (whatever that means). Here is what the article had to say:
Since he came into the league in 2010, Verner has played very well. From starting in Week 4 of his rookie season, after Jason McCourty was injured, to playing as a nickel corner in 2011, to starting full time this year, he's been consistently good -- and superb this year. This season, of regular starting corners with more than 250 snaps in coverage, he's tied for 10th in yards allowed per snap and he's the only player from that group who hasn't given up a touchdown or been flagged for a penalty. Nnamdi Asomugha, by comparison, has given up 1.4 yards per snap, three touchdowns and five penalties.
That is pretty solid right there.
