Notes:
A three-time All-American and All-MEAC selection, Durant has been the picture of consistency at the linebacker position during his tenure at Hampton...His best season came in 2005, when he recorded 124 tackles, five sacks and two fumblew recoveries...Once again earned All-American and All-MEAC honors as a senior, finishing last season with 98 total tackles, 13 TFLs, one sack and one fumble recovery...Ranks second in school history in tackles (353), with 47 TFLs and 10 sacks...Explosive coming out of his stance, with the ability to cover backs and tight ends in passing situations...Non-stop motor with a leader's atitude on the field...Lacks ideal size for an NFL linebacker and could be converted to a safety at the next level...Ran a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash and did 25 reps at the bench press...Brother of former North Carolina standout Darian Durant.
