Top 15 Buccaneers: No. 6

July, 4, 2014
We continue our list of the top 15 Buccaneers with No. 6:

Alterraun Verner, cornerback

What he did in 2013: Verner had a Pro Bowl season for the Tennessee Titans. He had 57 tackles and five interceptions.

Why he’s No. 6 in 2014: Verner was one of the first players the Bucs went after in free agency. At 25, he may be just entering his prime. He’s a perfect fit in coach Lovie Smith’s Tampa 2 defense. The Bucs parted ways with Darrelle Revis because he was expensive and not a great fit in the Tampa 2 scheme. Verner may not be as talented as Revis, but the Bucs believe he can be successful as their No. 1 cornerback.
