Durham who was projected by most scouts to go in the seventh round, with early predictions of the fifth or sixth round, was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth round as the 107th overall pick.
The 6-foot-5, 217 pound Durham had a career year in 2010 for the Bulldogs. He started eight games, playing as the No. 2 receiver behind A.J. Green (first round, fourth pick overall) and caught 32 passes for 659 yards, including three touchdowns.
Individual game career highs last year included receptions (5, Arkansas), receiving yards (112, Vanderbilt), and longest touchdown run (66 yards, Georgia Tech). Durham led the Bulldogs in receiving yards per game five times in 2010.
Durham helped raise his stock in the draft with a solid UGA Pro Day workout that included a 4.43 40-yard dash, a 35-inch vertical leap, and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. He also bench pressed 225-pounds 17 times.
Durham finished his UGA career with 64 catches for 1,109 yards. He averaged 17.3 yards per reception and found the end zone four times.
According to a twitter post, Durham stated that that he is “very blessed” and “can’t wait to be in Seattle.”
