Alterraun Ennis Verner (born December 13, 1988) is a former American football cornerback. He played college football for the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins.
High school careerEdit
Verner attended Mayfair High School in Lakewood, California, where he played wide receiver, defensive back, linebacker, and special teams. As a senior, he had 50 receptions for 907 yards and 13 touchdowns. On defense, he made 56 tackles and four interceptions (one returned for a 102-yard touchdown). Verner earned second-team All-CIF Southern Section honors and was selected to play in Shrine All-Star Game. He played for legendary coach Andrew Slome.
Verner also lettered all four seasons in track & field for coach Josh Barker. Prior to high school, Verner won a silver medal in the 1500 meters at the 1997 California State Game, and placed fourth in the 4×100 relay at the 2000 USATF Youth Nationals. As a freshman at Mayfair, he was selected as the team's Most Valuable Performer, and was the league champ in both the 110m and 300m hurdle (45.0) events. As a sophomore, he was the league champ in 4x400 relay, second in 110m high hurdles and high jump (6-2). As a junior, he served as team co-captain, earning Suburban League Academic All-League honors. He was the league champ in the high jump (6-4) and 4×100 m relay. As a senior, he had bests of 6-6 (1.98m) in the high jump, 20-10 (6.37m) in the long jump, 10.7 in the 100-meter dash and 39.70 in the 300m hurdles.
An excellent student, Verner held a 4.17 GPA and achieved a 1740 SAT score. He also served as a peer tutor to his high school football team in the subjects of math and history. Considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Verner was listed as the No. 49 cornerback prospect in the nation. He chose UCLA over Boston College, Oregon, and Washington.
In his true freshman year at UCLA, Verner finished fourth among Bruins with 59 tackles and third on the team with two interceptions, while leading the team with 123 interception yards and two touchdowns. He was named co-Freshman of the Year for the Pac-10 Conference (alongside Jairus Byrd and Taylor Mays), and was selected first-team Freshman All-America by College Football News and Scripps/FWAA, as well as second-team by The Sporting News, Scout.com, and Rivals.com.
As a sophomore, Verner appeared in all 13 games, while starting 10, and ranked fourth on the team with 75 tackles. He finished with 15 pass breakups and four interceptions.

In his senior year, he started in all 13 games and finished with 72 tackles, of which 51 were solo. He also had five interceptions and 158 interception return yards, with one of them resulting in a touchdown. He also had another defensive touchdown as a fumble recovery.
Verner attended the NFL Scouting Combine and performed all of the combine and positional drills. On March 30, 2010, he attended UCLA's pro day and ran all of the combine drills again, but opted to skip the short shuttle and three-cone drill. He was able to earn better times in the 40-yard dash (4.52s) and 20-yard dash (2.63s), while also adding height to his vertical (32.5"). At the conclusion of the pre-draft process, he was projected to be a fourth or fifth round pick by NFL draft experts and scouts. He was ranked as the 18th best cornerback prospect in the draft by DraftScout.com and was also ranked the 24th best cornerback prospect in the draft by WalterFootball.com.

The Tennessee Titans selected Verner in the fourth round (104th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft. He was the 13th cornerback drafted in 2010. The Tennessee Titans traded running back LenDale White, defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson, their fourth round pick (111th overall) in 2010, and their sixth round pick (185th overall) in 2010 to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for the Seahawks' fourth (104th overall) and sixth round picks (176th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft. The Titans selected quarterback Rusty Smith with their sixth round pick, while Seattle drafted Walter Thurmond and Anthony McCoy.
Throughout training camp, Verner competed for a job as a starting cornerback against veterans Jason McCourty and Ryan Mouton. Head coach Jeff Fisher named Verner the third cornerback on the depth chart to start the regular season, behind veterans Cortland Finnegan and Jason McCourty.
