Notable: This is the second year in a row the Rams selected a cornerback from an FCS school. Last season, they chose Robert Rochell of Central Arkansas.
Last season: Durant intercepted three passes and broke up 12 passes. He and was voted first-team FCS All-American and the MEAC defensive player of the year.
