Scout.com Take

 

Duvernay is a wide receiver who is a valuable weapon in any offense. He plays mostly out of the slot and can take the underneath pass and turn it into a big gain in a flash. He has the moves and the athleticism to make defenders miss, but the most unique quality of his game is his burst and top-end speed. In the pads, he is one of the fastest guys in the country. Additionally, he can make plays vertically down the field. – Greg Powers.
