Update: More on Duvernay-Tardiff from CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler:
Had a great convo today with one of my top "sleepers" in this draft class: OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. A really impressive person & prospect— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) April 9, 2014
LDT really impressed me at the Shrine Game. Have no clue how he didn't receive a NFL Combine invite. Def a buzz going on with this kid— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) April 9, 2014
LDT told me the 4 teams that have shown the most interest: GB, PHI, SF and CHI. He had a private workout with the #Eagles recently— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) April 9, 2014
