Pick #247 - Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU
« on: March 20, 2017, 02:53:27 PM »






HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-2.5 / 196 | 40: 4.52

Bio:
Two-year starter who led LSU with 41 receptions and 593 receiving yards and tied for the team lead with three touchdowns as a junior in 2016. Led the Tigers in all three stats in 2015, making 43 catches for 698 yards and six scores. Ranked second on the team with 318 receiving yards and five touchdowns as a true freshman in 2014 with a team-leading 22.7 yards per reception on 14 catches.


Positives:
Explosive, game-changing receiver coming off a disappointing campaign. Smooth, easily adjusts to the errant throw and makes a lot of acrobatic receptions. Displays a sense of timing and anticipation, gets vertical in a crowd and exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the pass. Plays with a degree of quickness, shows himself as a true deep threat and makes the difficult over-the-shoulder reception in stride. Flashes strong hands and the ability to pluck the ball from the air. Works to separate from opponents, comes back to the ball and displays solid hand-eye coordination.

Negatives:
Must improve his overall route-running, as he lacks quickness into breaks and tends to round off routes. Very inconsistent last season and dropped too many catchable throws. Has a thin build and may struggle in battles.


Analysis:
After his sophomore season of 2015, I graded Dupre as a potential first-round choice, but for a variety of reasons his play took a step back last year. He possesses the underlying size, skill and upside potential to be a dominant pass catcher at the next level but must get his game back on track.

If you are not the lead dog the view never changes.

Check out who was no.10 on Todd McShay's way too early mock draft from last year.

We can only hope, right?  cheese)

Good catch TF.  Guess McShay was a little off on that one hey?  It is somewhat encouraging.  As my least favorite pick Dupre should end up a super star.  Never know at least TT took a guy who has potential.  With the WR having something upstairs helps.  Hopefully this kid can be a good student of the game.  Work on his route running and learn the playbook.  If he really dedicates himself could find a home here.  He'll have to gain AR's trust which is not an easy thing to do.
