- Defensive backs Logan Ryan and Duron Harmon are used to playing together. Ryan and Harmon began their college football careers together as members of the same recruiting class at Rutgers University and developed a close friendship during their four years in Piscataway, N.J. As fate would have it, Ryan and Harmon would begin their NFL journeys together as well, when the Patriots selected the two defensive backs just eight picks apart in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Reunited once again, the former Scarlet Knights are excited and eager to make their mark, just as they did four years ago at Rutgers.
- "We talked before the draft and said how good it would be to play on the same team again, and for it to happen again, it's exciting and it's a blessing," Harmon told The Boston Globe. "It’s great [we're contributing], because at the end of the day you want to play, and to contribute to a team like this, it's fun."
- Born Jan. 24, 1991.
- 2008 Gatorade State Player of the Year in Delaware.
- Duron and wife, Christing, have two sons, Chris and Dallas.
- Majored in labor studies at Rutgers.
