No. 7: Kris Durham

Year: 2006
Position: Wide Receiver
Original Ranking: 3-star, No. 46 WR

Durham is another one of those never-gonna-quit type players who Mark Richt absolutely loves. He’s a big tall strong receiver who most schools chose to overlook, much to their discredit.

In his four years at Georgia, Durham snagged 64 receptions for 1,109 yards and four touchdowns, coming in at a clip of 17.3 yards per catch. He became a favorite target of Matthew Stafford, and was one of Georgia’s best possession receivers in 2010.

He was briefly reunited with Stafford as a member of the Detroit Lions, and is still playing in the NFL today as a member of the Oakland Raiders.
