Ravens WR Devin Duvernay Dynasty Rookie Analysis

  • Draft Position: 3.92 | School: Texas
  • Height: 5’10” | Weight: 200 pounds
  • 40-yard dash: 4.39 seconds
  • 2020 Age: 23 | Class: Senior
  • Recruitment Stars: 4

Duvernay was a steady if underwhelming contributor with 70-1,082-7 receiving in his three years at Texas, but as a senior he shifted into the slot, where he played 96% of his snaps (per SIS), and he broke out with a strong 106-1,386-9 receiving performance on 129 targets.

He also chipped in with 10-24-1 rushing and 10-205-0 kick returning in his final season.

With his elite speed, Duvernay will be able to stretch defenses vertically, and there could be targets to go around, given that the Ravens entered the draft with the No. 1 overall opportunity receiving score.

An Albert Wilson-esque slot man in his style of play, Duvernay could challenge veteran incumbent Willie Snead for playing time this year, and with Snead in the final season of his contract, Duvernay could be the starting slot receiver for quarterback Lamar Jackson in 2021.

NFL Prospect Comp: Josh Huff but much faster
