2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Devin Duvernay, WR, Texas Longhorns

Career Snapshot
Two-year starter who earned First Team All-Big 12 honors, led the conference with 106 receptions and 1,386 receiving yards and caught nine touchdowns as a senior in 2019. Caught 41 passes for 546 yards and four TDs as a junior.

Positives
Talented receiver who comes off a tremendous campaign, which has resulted in his draft stock exploding. Fluidly releases off the line of scrimmage, has a burst of speed that he turns on in a single step and displays himself as a solid vertical receiver. Tracks the pass in the air, makes the deep reception at full speed and doesn’t break stride. Quickly gets out of breaks, stays low on exit and positions himself to make the reception.

Catches the ball with his hands and turns upfield to pick up positive yardage after the catch. Finds the soft spot in the underneath coverage, shows good awareness and is generally on the same page as his quarterback. Nicely makes the reception on crossing patterns, adjusts to the errant throw and uses his frame to shield away defenders.

Negatives
Despite his forty time from the Combine, does not display the top-end speed on film. Under six feet tall and has short arms.

Analysis
Duvernay entered the season with late-round grades, but he was far and away the number one receiver at Texas this year. He’s a talented pass-catcher who can line up in the slot or on the boundary and possesses the tools necessary to develop into a third wideout at the next level.
