Stoops would be “very shocked” if Bud Dupree isn’t a first round draft pick


While a lot of attention has been given to the young talent on UK’s roster so far this preseason, Mark Stoops didn’t miss an opportunity to lavish praise on 2nd team All-SEC defensive end Bud Dupree. Stoops raved about Dupree during his press conference today, and said he probably doesn’t compliment Bud and Za’Darius Smith enough. “They’re going to make good pros,” Stoops said of the two, adding that he would be “very shocked” if Bud isn’t drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft. “I’d be very shocked if Bud was not a first-round draft pick. You know I’ve been around a lot of great ones.”
