LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre could be on his way to the NFL Draft.
On Thursday, Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com reported that “several people” have told him that Dupre is set to begin his professional career next year.
Dupre, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound junior, is thought to be a second to third-round draft pick. He has 91 catches for 1,470 yards and 14 touchdowns for his career. He had 34 catches for 454 yards with 3 touchdowns this year.
Pauline adds this interesting nugget in his report: “Entering the season I stamped Dupre as a first round prospect, but his play was slightly disappointing this year.”
It should be interesting to see what comes of Dupre in the future.
