  1. Conner Vernon, WR, Duke
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 196. Arm: 29 3/4. Hand: 9 1/8.
    40 Time: 4.68.
    Projected Round (2013): 5-6.

    4/24/13: The Combine didn’t go well for Vernon as he had one of the slower times among the wide receivers. Vernon did do well in the field drills.

    Vernon was very good for Duke in 2012, but was shut down by Florida State and defensive backs with NFL potential. He made 85 receptions for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns on the season. 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.

  2. Sean Renfree, QB, Duke
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 219.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.88.
    Projected Round (2013): 5-7.

    4/24/13: Renfree has some fans in the scouting community. He is a smart quarterback who received excellent preparation from his college staff. The senior completed 67 percent of his passes for 3,113 yards with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Renfree helped lead Duke to a Bowl game in 2012. He completed 65 percent of his passes in his collegiate career.
