Name: Payne Durham
Position & Size: Tight End, 6-5, 255 Pounds
Hometown: Suwanee, Georgia
2019 Stats: 9 Receptions, 82 Yards, 4 Touchdowns
2020 Prediction: Starter at Tight End
Thoughts: Purdue is looking to replace the production from Brycen Hopkins and Durham appears he will get the first crack at the starting job.
After scoring on almost half of his catches last year, he will continue to become a big time red zone target with his great size. Durham can also be a solid blocker, which we need as the run game HAS to improve for us to be successful.
Overall, Durham is a soling young tight end as a 3rd year sophomore. If he can produce half of what Brycen did in 2019, the offense will be in great shape.
