DURHAM, N.C. -- Conner Vernon arrived at Duke in the summer of 2009 and, after four seasons on the gridiron, departed as the ACC’s most prolific wide receiver.

Since graduating this past December, the Miami, Fla., native has turned his attention to life after Duke – preparation for the National Football League.  Vernon is expected to be selected in this weekend’s annual draft.

In 48 career games at Duke, Vernon caught 283 passes for 3,749 yards and 21 touchdowns while compiling 4,357 career all-purpose yards.  A three-time all-conference selection, the Miami, Fla., native set ACC records for career pass receptions, career pass receiving yardage, most consecutive games with one or more pass reception (48), most seasons with 50-plus pass receptions (4), most seasons with 60-plus pass receptions (3) and most seasons with 70-plus pass receptions (3).  In addition, Vernon finished career ranking among the NCAA’s all-time leaders in both receptions (23rd) and receiving yardage (24th).
