The NFL Scouting Combine has concluded and the NFL Draft is not that far down the road.This is the 10th part of a series previewing whom the Arizona Cardinals may select with their first round pick (24th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago, IL. on Apr. 30. The draft concludes on May 2.
Let's take a close look at a college prospect that may be available to the Red Birds when they're on the clock late in the first round. This scenario could certainly change as well if the Cardinals either trade up or trade down accordingly:
Bud Dupree, OLB, Kentucky
The Macon, GA native is 6-foot-4 and weighs 269 pounds. If drafted, he'd provide the Cards with a talented pass rusher. As we all know, the Red Birds can certainly use some help getting to the quarterback.
According to scouts, Dupree's strengths are: Freakish athlete with chiseled frame. Outstanding power with ability to rag-doll tight ends at will. Should be an above average edge-setter. Good transition from playing run to rushing quarterback in play-action. Explosive closing burst. Willing thumper when he has a shot on running back. Can drop into space and play zone. Raw, but learning with huge growth potential as a player. Has strength at the point to be a physical edge-setter. Scouts give him plus grade for character.Read more... Join the Conversation...
