Associated Press College Football Writer Ralph D. Russo picked out six players from bad teams to expect big seasons from this year. One was Kentucky junior defensive end Bud Dupree.
“The Wildcats didn’t win an SEC game last season and will have a hard time winning one this season. Dupree, though, will be handful for opposing offenses. As a sophomore last season he had 91 tackles and 6.5 sacks. The 254-pound junior should thrive playing for new coach Mark Stoops and defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot,” Russo said.
I couldn’t agree more, especially with Za’Darius Smith at the other end to keep teams from avoiding Dupree.
Others cited by Russo were as follows: Jonathan Brown, LB, Illinois; Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland; Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo; Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado; and James Sims, RB, Kansas.
