Big play receivers are always in demand, and our subject today can make big plays. Travin Dural has averaged nearly 20 yards per catch over his three seasons in Baton Rouge. Travin Dural came to LSU as a four star recruit from Breaux Bridge High School. He redshirted his freshman season and played in a reserve role as a redshirt freshman. Dural started all thirteen games as a sophomore. Last season he injured his hamstring and that required surgery. He missed spring practice, but will be ready to go in the fall.

GAMES WATCHED:  
2014: Mississippi State; 2015: Western Kentucky, South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas


BEST INGREDIENTS

Travin Dural has top end speed. He was a 200 meter state champion in high school. He uses his hands well to get separation. Dural is a solid route runner. He has basic knowledge of the route tree. Dural high points the ball well on 50/50 balls.


WORST INGREDIENTS

Dural doesn’t get in and out of his breaks quickly enough. He is not passable as a run blocker. He has concentration issues. He drops easy passes too often.


MEAL QUALITY

Travin Dural has speed to burn and that will always be a quality desired by NFL teams. He has dealt with some really bad quarterback play at LSU, and I am not sure if that is going to get better this season. Dural and his more heralded teammate Malachi Dupre are two of the top ten prospects at the wide receiver position in the 2017 draft. Dural is a mid-to-late 2nd round prospect for me at this time.
