Duvernay was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the third round with the 92nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.[13] He made his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns and recorded a 12-yard reception in the 38–6 victory.[14] In Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, he recorded a 93-yard kickoff return for his first career touchdown in the 20–34 loss.[15] In Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, he had a 42-yard rush on a jet sweep to go along with two catches for 17 yards as the Ravens won 27–3.[16] He had three catches for a season-high 45 yards in a 17–23 Week 10 loss to the New England Patriots.[17]

Duvernay had a slightly more active role at the beginning of the 2021 season due to injuries to Miles Boykin and Rashod Bateman. In Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Duvernay recovered a fumble by teammate Ty'Son Williams at the Kansas City two yard line and scored a touchdown. The Ravens would win 36–35.[18] The next week against the Detroit Lions, he had first career receiving touchdown on a 19-yard reception in a 19–17 win.[19] In Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings, Duvernay recorded his second receiving touchdown on a five-yard reception that he caught one-handed. The Ravens would win 34–31 in overtime.[20] Duvernay was selected to his first pro bowl as a return specialist at the end of the season.
