Durant has good field vision and is capable of utilizing his vision to break off tackles. Durant has the ability to utilize his legs to keep the drive going and is solid running routes. Durant has solid hands and can catch well. Durant is a decent pass blocker and has the ability to block in space in the second level. He puts in a ton of effort when making blocks and is willing to give the quarterback extra time. Plays with a lot of toughness and is extremely competitive. Durant has a strong level of production. Durant has a good motor which is a strong attribute when he is on the field. Can be patient when running the football. Does have position versatility as either a pass catching back or just a third down running back.

Weaknessess

Mataeo Durant needs to be quicker with when he is bouncing in and out of holes in the offensive line. Can be inconsistent with his elusiveness, foot quickness, and route running. Can be sloppy at times with his cutting ability. He struggles to maintain balance when he lowers his pad level. Durant had poor ball security during the 2021 season. He is not the best when creating separation. He does need to improve on his technique as a pass blocker as sometimes he blocks way too high. He must strengthen his instincts when catching the football. Durant does have durability concerns as he suffered a shoulder injury in 2019 and had to get surgery on it.
