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.
