STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES
NFL analyst Lance Zierlein reported on the strengths and weaknesses of Durant. Some strengths include having a great catch radius, pure speed, and great footwork. He was also praised for his ability to match a receiver’s route when playing in the slot.
Some weaknesses noticed included his lack of size, lack of durability as a tackler, and a lack of pattern recognition. Most of his weaknesses derive from his undersized frame for an NFL-sized cornerback. Durant currently stands 5’10” and weighs 180 pounds.
Overall Durant was described as “a late Day 3 selection due to his size, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him outperform his draft slotting.”
