Alvin Dupree has become one of my favorite pass rushers in this draft class. There just is so much to like in his game. Dupree was the defensive equivalent to “Beast Mode” at Kentucky.
His success at getting to the QB started to take off in his sophomore season. In 2012, he had 6.5 sacks. In 2013, he had 7 sacks. His senior season was his finest, as he had 7.5 sacks and 12.5 tackles for a loss. Now the Kentucky Wildcat looks to carry this consistent success to the NFL.
Dupree has the physical tool-set to dominate in the NFL. He is 6′ 4″ and weighs 264 pounds. He is a combination of size and speed that is flat out scary for any left tackle in football.
