Duncan is a big, athletic D-II tight end who plays like a receiver at times and blocks exceptionally. He has outstanding hands and decent speed. In high school, Joe Don Duncan was all-league in all three sports he played: Football, basketball and baseball.
After high school, Joe Don Duncan walked onto Sacramento State’s football team, where he suffered his first collegiate setback: A micro-fracture at the end of his right femur. He decided to head to El Camino College to work through his injuries. By his second year, Joe Don Duncan had earned MVP for the team and 1st team all-conference. After receiving interest from several D-1 schools, he thought he would take a chance and visit the team where his younger brother, Jake Duncan, played, Dixie State.
Unfortunately there isn't much footage around on Duncan but he has just received an invitation to the Senior Bowl. This will give scouts a real opportunity to see how good he really is.
You can see him in action here, he wears No.9
Duncan is steadily moving up draft boards and in now seen as a 5th-7th round prospect but if he shows some skills at the Senior Bowl then I expect him to rise even further.
