Devin Duvernay of Texas possesses the traits that any young quarterback would want in a receiver. Thanks to the historically deep wideout class available in this year’s prospect pool, the Bengals just might be able to give Burrow a gunslinger’s dream and on day three of the draft too.

Duvernay is a deep threat and home run hitter, in large part thanks to his blazing speed (He ran a 4.39 40 at the combine). Despite all the talk of Burrow having a weak arm, he throws a pretty deep ball. Picking up Duvernay would give Burrow and the rest of the offense another deep threat alongside Ross, allowing him to utilize that strength.

That’s not all there is to love about the Duvernay, however. His competitiveness, ability to make plays after the catch, and incredible hands elevate his potential. Those kinds of attributes would help take some of the playmaking pressure off Burrow. He can just make the throw, trust Duvernay’s sure hands, and watch as he racks up yards after the catch.

You have to appreciate the fact that the mentality he brings also seems to fit into the culture Zac Taylor is attempting to build. Burrow or not, Duvernay would be a good addition to the Bengals.
