2013 BYU Football Newcomers: Tim Duran

Here at Lawless Republic we will be profiling all the 2013 signees & return missionaries who will be joining the BYU Football team this season.  This will be a daily feature on the site as we count down to Fall Camp.

Tim Duran, OL

Puyallup, WA Cabrillo College

6-4, 290

Before BYU:  At Cabrillo College Duran was voted a unanimous 1st Team All-Conference and 1st Team All-State. He was also the winner of the Larry Siemering Award (2012 Offensive Lineman of the Year) along with team captain.

Expectations in 2013: Project.

I list him as a 1 year project, just to get up to speed on a D1 level. He had a great season at Cabrillo last year and could translate well in year 2 after spending time with the Cougar strength and conditioning team and learning the offense. Shaving off his manly goatee might hurt him at first but I believe he will fully recover.

The potential in BYU career: Moderate.

Duran is a big body with good mobility but he will have to battle with 8 other new comers in fall camp to earn a spot on the field. I see him obtaining back up time and possibly cracking the starting line-up in 2014.

Rivals.com has him listed as a two-star recruit, and in my opinion underrated for the accolades and awards he received coming out of junior college.
