Bud Dupree left Kentucky this year as the most exciting NFL prospect since Randall Cobb. Judging by the reports coming in from the Steeler’s training camp, he has a good chance to make a similar impact as a pro.
Here’s what a writer in Pittsburgh had to say about Bud’s performance thus far:
A note that didn’t make it in the Day 5 report but should have is the impact rookie Bud Dupree is making. His play on the field is one thing, but he’s adding well to the volume of practices each time he lowers his shoulder.
There’s a distinct sound when Dupree smashes into one of the tight ends he’s constantly covering so far. He’s not looking to take their heads off, but he is letting them know he’s there.
The Steelers drafted Dupree with the 22nd overall pick this summer. While he didn’t experience a lot of wins at UK, it’s great to see a guy who contributed so much to the program do well at the next level.
Go get em, Bud.
