NorthwestFootball.net has confirmed that University of Memphis wide receiver Duke Calhoun will be one of the 30 players the Seattle Seahawks will host prior to the 2010 NFL Draft.
Calhoun will visit the Seahawks on April 7-8, after he meets with the Minnesota Vikings.
A native of Memphis, Calhoun (6-2, 195) started 26 of his 49 career games for the Tigers, catching at least one pass in each game, and posting ten 100-yard receiving games.
Both feats are school records.
Calhoun’s 212 receptions and 2,981 receiving yards are school records, and his 19 career receiving touchdowns rank 3rd on the school’s all-time list. Last season, Calhoun led the Tigers with 68 receptions for 923 yards and 5 touchdowns, and was named the team’s Most Valuable Player after the season.
In addition to starting at wide receiver, Calhoun excelled on special teams, totaling 7 tackles on the season, and recovering a fumbled punt against the University of Tennessee.
Calhoun, who is projected to be a mid-to-late round draft pick, posted the following numbers during his pro day last week in Memphis:
40-yard dash: 4.49 seconds
20-yard dash: 2.62 seconds
10-yard dash: 1.53 seconds
