Overview:

Kris Durham is a nice sleeper option in the late rounds. He’s big and is surprisingly quick for his size. He can challenge defenses down field but he is also the poster boy for possession receivers. He’ll go up and make tough grabs in traffic and isn’t afraid to work over the middle. He reminds me a lot of former Falcon Brian Finneran with more athleticism. For a couple of years Finneran was Vick’s go to guy and was a reliable receiver. I can’t see Durham being worse than him.
