In a quick break from basketball talk, let’s take a look at Big Blue Nation’s favorite football player. SB Nation’s site Canal Street Chronicles discuss Bud Dupree going to the Saints with the No. 13 overall pick. The writer talks about Dupree’s hardworking nature as one of the main reasons he wants to see New Orleans take Bud. He uses this quote as a prime example:

“I wear uniform number 2 because I’m trying to be number 1 but I am working like I am number 2”. — Bud Dupree, via the UK Athletics website.

This is high praise for Dupree, who has been on a tear since the season ended. At the NFL Combine, Dupree measured in at 6’4″, 269 pounds before running a 4.56 40-yard dash and dominating the vertical and broad jumps at 42 and 138 inches respectively.

Take a quick break from all the basketball stuff and read the article, pretty impressive to hear someone beg for their team to draft a Kentucky player. Best of luck to Bud Dupree as the draft process continues.
