Initial scouting report

“A year ago, Florida State took Georgia edge rusher transfer Jermaine Johnson II and elevated him to a first-round pick. Verse, an Albany transfer, is potentially on the same path. He is a well-built athlete who gets up to speed quickly. Verse displays displacement power but has average bend at the high side of his rush. He does a good job of containing the edge and is patient playing down the line. Verse does a good job of getting off blocks with quick hands.” — CBS Sports NFL Draft analyst Josh Edwards (Nov. 10)
