Devin Duvernay and Jerrod Heard
Duvernay was the clear-cut third option at receiver as he hauled in 39 catches for 524 yards and four touchdowns (all third on the team). Duvernay was a track runner back in high school and is one of the fastest guys on this team. He ran a 4.38 40-yard dash back in 2015.
Duvernay was a solid third option for Ehlinger. He is not very big (5’11”), but uses his speed and clean route running to lose defenders. He runs a deadly double-move and gets by corners in a flash. Three out of four of Duvernay’s touchdown catches came on plays that went 39 yards or more.
He is a dynamic playmaker that will be back for 2019, however, he does not have the makeup to be a true number one guy.
Heard was the fourth wide receiver in this system. He caught 12 balls for 110 yards. We all remember Heard as a quarterback his freshman year. He transitioned to the wide receiver position seamlessly. Heard is the ultimate team player and will be missed in this locker room.
Herman ran a few trick plays with Heard knowing he can sling the ball down the field. Heard got caught up in a circumstance where he did not need to be the main guy, but still filled his role beautifully.
