Bottom Line

More from With the First Pick

His height, weight and speed could make him special coming off the edge of a 4-3 defense. No reading keys and covering, just getting after the quarterback and playing the run on the way to him. To me, he should go anywhere in the first round to a 4-3 team that needs a pass-rusher, he can be that good.

Rang’s bottom line is, “Compares to Kamerion Wimbley, Tennessee Titans – Like Wimbley, Dupree has the blend of length and burst to enjoy a long, productive career as an NFL edge rusher. To achieve his full potential, however, he’ll need to get stronger in run support.”

Zlerlein’s bottom line is, “Dupree is an explosive, powerful athlete with a background in basketball. While he’s been productive at Kentucky, his tape doesn’t always do his potential justice. He must continue to improve as a pass rusher, but his traits are undeniable. Difference between being good and great might be his coordinator.”
