The Senior Bowl has released it’s first ever watch list in advance of the January 26 game, and two Blue Devils are on it.
Redshirt senior quarterback Sean Renfree and senior wide receiver Conner Vernon are among the 311 names selected for the watch list, which included 47 ACC players. The list will be whittled down to 100 before the Senior Bowl takes place.
Renfree opens the season as the most experienced quarterback in the ACC, having started 23 games and played in 29 over his Duke career. Renfree is the ACC’s active leader in passing yards, where he ranks in the Blue Devils’ all-time top five.
Vernon was earlier named to Preseason All-ACC and could break both Duke and ACC records this season in receptions and receiving yards all time. Vernon has registered at least one catch in all 35 games he’s played in. He’s caught more than one pass in his last 15 games played.
