I'm a huge UNC fan and I would love to draft him.

When it comes to my pro teams, I couldn't care less where they went to school as long as they can get the job done.

Agreed he's a solid slot receiver... I was just explaining why they were arguing lol

Vernon is a good player who played in pro-ready system, meaning that, he's going to be able to come in and contribute right away because he knows NFL routes, progressions, reads, etc.

However, he's going to need to bulk up.

He's not fast enough to play the speedy type of slot receiver people are thinking he could be able to play. That's just not his game. He's going to be more of a "sit in a zone and catch a pass for 7 yards" type player. In which case, he's going to need to bulk up. He could take those hits (or make guys miss) playing against the ACC teams of the world, but in the NFL, he isn't going to be able to do that for long.

did he return kicks or punts for Duke, also I did feel like whenever I watched Duke play this guy always stepped up to make the play when it mattered- which in my opinion means a LOT

also yea I was wondering if he was going to need to add weight- but the same could be said for a lot of players.

Thanks for the response.

maybe but ill remind you welker ran a 4.6.......i think it depends on if vernon is a great route runner and quick in small burst rather than deep long speed.....maybe im wrong though.....

If some team drafts this guy before round 4, they're idiots.

Vernon is slow and not athletic. This guy COULD find a niche with a team as, like, a 5th or 6th option that can just run underneaths or sit in a zone and wait.

Also, any duke "fans" who think they are qualified to make a fair assessment on Vernon are liars. I can assure you they've only watched two Duke football games in the past 10 years. The Carolina game this year and the Bowl game this year as well.

No, you're right. But Welker isn't the type of slot receiver I was referring too when I said "speedy". Welker is the type of slot receiver that sits down in a zone and catches the short passes, but also has the know-how to get open downfield.

But, Welker also is more of a bulky guy that Vernon, and can take on the linerbackers.
