2024 Exclusive Sneak Peek: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida St


Welcome to the Exclusive Sneak Peek: Jared Verse is a cornerback out of Florida St. He is from Dayton, OH and was a not recruit out of Central Columbia High School in Berwick, PA.

He started his career in the FCS with Albany where he was a redshirt freshman before getting into game action in the 2020 season where he exploded for 14.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss.

After that elite season, he transferred to Florida St for the 2021 season where he put up strong numbers and proved he deserved a larger role for the 2022 season.

In 2022 as a sophomore he appeared in 12 games where he recorded 22 solo tackles, 26 assists, 9 sacks and 17 tackles for loss. He proved to be a true leader on the defensive side of the ball and a force to be reckoned with.

His final collegiate season in 2023 saw him appear in 13 games where he recorded 23 solo tackles, 18 assists, 9 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss before declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft as one of the class’s elite edge rushers.

Scouting Reports

Strengths

  • Exceptional speed and flexibility allow him to be a monster on the edge.
  • His explosive first step gives him the potential to be a truly elite pass rusher and his athleticism makes him the most versatile edge in the class.
  • He possesses insane strength that makes him versatile and powerful and makes him unstoppable unless you double-team him.
  • Has a high motor and high effort level in all plays. Doesn’t take any plays off and is a driving force on the line.

Weaknesses

  • Will need to develop better use of his hands to become more effective as a run-stopper.
  • He often plays out of control and over-pursues, causing him to overplay a ball carrier and miss the tackle.
  • Needs to improve his mental processing and anticipation against the run.
  • Requires further development for his game to translate to the next level.

Pre-Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital: Mid 1st Round

Ideal Landing Spot: New Orleans Saints

The Saints are a cap-strapped and aging roster that is getting worse by the day, so it makes natural sense that they dip into the rookie market to find a young star edge rusher to revamp their defence.

Verse is a great combination of size and speed and is pro-ready. He would step right into the lineup with ease should the Saints choose to contend in 2024 and would be a long-term piece to move forward with a rebuild.

He would easily become the centrepiece to a new-look Saints defence if they chose to select him and could be the first step to them getting out of their ever-present cap woes.
