Believe it or not, the NFL Draft is one week away, and Bud Dupree’s stock continues to soar. Two of the latest mock drafts on NFL.com have Dupree going SIXTH to the New York Jets, with another projecting him 13th to New Orleans. SI’s latest mock has Dupree going 14th to the Miami Dolphins.
On a conference call on Tuesday, ESPN’s Mel Kiper said Bud Dupree’s got all the buzz right now, predicting he’ll go in the top 16. “He’s a hot guy right now,” Kiper said.
NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks discussed the buzz around Bud in a video that we unfortunately can’t embed for you, but you can watch it by clicking the pic below or this link.
Dupree had an excellent performance in the NFL Combine, and as Freddie Maggard pointed out on Twitter last night, kudos to Erik Korem and the UK High Performance staff for doing their best to get him and the other draft prospects ready the past few months. Most kids have to pay for that kind of training.
