Kris Durham gets drafted higher than expected

A few months ago, Kris Durham wasn't considered a good enough prospect to be invited to the NFL draft combine. On Saturday, the Georgia receiver was drafted anyway - and in the fourth round.

The Seattle Seahawks used the 107th overall pick to tap Durham, a 6-foot-5 Calhoun native.

Durham had injury issues until 2010, when he emerged in the early absence of A.J. Green to be the team's go-to receiver. Even when Green returned from suspension, Durham had his moments, including a big first-down catch at Auburn. He finished the season with 32 catches for 659 yards and three touchdowns.

Still, there was no guarantee that Durham would even be drafted. He didn't receive an invite to the NFL combine in February, while eight other Georgia teammates did.
