Dupree Looks OK, Woooot

Recommended Posts

Hopefully he can still compete for the 6th/7th spot again,  Has the most upside of any WR we've had wince Walker.

 

I think Clark and Yancey are much safer on the PS than he would be.

I want

Jordy/Cobb/Adams/Janis/Davis/Dupree/McCaffrey

I'm glad he's ok, but..."Has the most upside of any WR we've had wince Walker."...whaat? :lol:

There are at least 3 WRs on this team now that had/have higher upside!

Well 3 years ago he was the #1 ranked WR prospect his age in the world, hence upside, if he came out last year he probably would have been a 1st rounder, when was the last time we drafted a 1st round WR?  If he played at NC with Mitch he would have been in the lottery this year.

2014 Dupre ranks as the nation's No. 1 wide receiver according to the ESPN 300.

Course Speedy Noil was ranked that high as well. #1 in a fe rankings... oh well, 

Dupree reminds me of AJ Green... Watched 10-15 LSU games and hated that he didn't get used....I was elated when he came here.

I feel like you do, I really like the kid.  Not sure of the AJ Green comp, just from a speed standpoint, but I get that Dupree has some impressive skills.

But...he's be a safe stash on the practice squad.  If this injury keeps him out a while, he will have little tape on him out there.  And every other team passed on him in the draft, so it isn't like anyone is really watching for him right now.

I think Dupre is A.J. Green in the same way that Janis is Julio Jones, which is to say - not.

Though Dupre has a skillset that is useful as a WR in the NFL, which Janis apparently does not.

Who? Nelson, Cobb, Adams are who they are. Maybe Adams has some room to grow.

Allison is capped by being an average athelte.

Davis is capped by a frail frame, he's soft. I see a deep threat only there.

Janis has world's of potential but I'm off that train. His head just isn't there.

That leaves Yancey and Dupre. I would say Dupre has far more upside than Yancey.

Jordy had far more upside (and has realized it). Adams has/had more upside and is currently realizing it. And Janis had more upside but is not realizing it.

Not so sure Incog..... Jordy/Adams/Janis were never though of as the best player in the country at any point in their class/age.  All Dupree did to hurt his value is never get an opportunity because of horrendous QB play and LF carrying the rock.

His speed is only 0.03 or so less than Green at the combine and has similar body control / hands.   I can picture him having at least a Javon Walker type career given the opportunity. 

 

AJ green - combine  4.49     pro day : skipped

Malachi Dupree -  combine  4.52    pro day 4.46

 

I do have to admit getting burned by this logic when we brought in Kregg Lumpkin.

Didn't reports say he built his frame up this year? Don't think he's capped from that standpoint. Think he has potential to grow still.

If a receiver doesn't have 50 catches as a rookie there's no hope for them according to Packer fans.  That's the only reason people are high on Dupre/Yancey.  This time next year Dupre and Yancey will be afterthoughts.  People who actually know what they're talking about have said that Davis was going to need a year to get up to NFL levels, but since he didn't do anything last year except catch a TD in the NFL, he's not doing anything ever.

I figured Dupre would be okay. Looked more scary than serious when it happened. The injuries that concerned me more were Randall and Barclay.

Malachi Dupre was released from the hospital this morning, according to one of his agents who said "he went through normal medical protocol to ensure he did not have any extensive injuries to his head and neck. He had a few scans and test and everything came back negative and he was released this morning."
