Conner Vernon, WR, Duke
Height: 6-0. Weight: 193. Arm: 29 3/4. Hand: 9 1/8. Projected 40 Time: 4.50. Projected Round (2013): 4-6. 2/13/13: Vernon was very good for Duke this season, but was shut down by Florida State and defensive backs with NFL potential. He made 85 receptions for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns this year. Vernon didn't impress at the Senior Bowl and wasn't getting consistent separation.
8/17/12: Vernon had 70 receptions for 956 yards and six touchdowns in 2011. He had a quality game against Stanford with six catches for 98 yards.
Vernon is a sleeper receiver who has a nice combination of size and quickness. He passed up teammate Donovan Varner as Duke's top receiver in 2010. Vernon led the Blue Devils with 73 receptions for 973 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore. That came after a solid freshman year of 55 receptions for 746 yards and three scores.
Now that the combine is over and the free agent frenzy has died down (still quality free agents out there, though), I'll do another mock. Four rounds with trades. It's pretty likely that I have some players that are both too high and too low in regards to where they are being projected, but I did the best I could based on need, best player available, where I'd take these players, character concerns and where I think they'll be taken.
