Ourlads' Analysis:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BUD DUPREE: Kentucky, 6040 269 4.56. Three-year productive starter as both a defensive end and outside linebacker. From Irwinton, GA. Has an athletic skill set that combined his size, strength, and football intelligence to create big plays for the Wildcats. Moves easily for a big man. A fast twitch athlete who plays well on his feet or with his hand in the dirt. Explosive first step quickness to get off on the snap and lateral quickness to contain the outside run. Can bend the edge of a defense and come flat down the line. Has good hand quickness and a closing burst to the quarterback. Good pass rush effort. An edge pass rusher who looks the part. Led the Wildcats in tackles for loss and sacks each of the past three years. Added 15 pounds to his frame prior to the 2014 season. Dupree showed flashes of being a top tier edge rusher. His first step is as explosive as you will find and there is plenty of functional power and strength to his game. Has a knack for making the big play, but also does the little things every down to make his presence felt. The athletic pass rusher showed his versatility by playing in three different defense packages at Kentucky; 4-3/over, 4-2-5, and a 3-4. His assignments were as varied as his coaches. Struggles to get off blocks once they get their hands inside. Needs to widen his array of pass rush moves. 2014 stats: 74 T, 12.5 TFL, 7.5 sacks, 5 QBH, 2 FF. OSR:1/14 for OB. First round. (A-32 5/8, H-9 3/4, 10-1.63, 10-1.63).
