New, 11 comments

The 3 star cornerback spurned late pushes from several schools to sign with Minnesota.

Vitals:

Name: Coney Durr
Position: Cornerback
Hometown/School: Geismar, LA (Dutchtown HS)

How he fits:

Durr's current skill set will probably see him play in nickel and in off-zone coverage. His underneath breaks and short area quickness will allow him to get a jump on receivers, plus attack running backs on run blitzes and in the alleys.

If Minnesota's coaches can help him improve his footwork and man-to-man skills then Durr could make an outstanding Field corner in the Gophers' system. He simply makes plays, and could develop into an excellent all-around corner.
