Five games were watched to analyze Dupree’s pass rushing and run defense in this scouting report all from DraftBreakdown.com. These games were:
Dupree is an explosive player off of the snap with one of the fastest, first-steps of any outside linebacker or defensive lineman in this draft. Here Dupree shows an excellent burst off of the line while snap-reading, but gets stood up on the line of scrimmage with a good punch to his breastplate completely loosing momentum.
Another great burst off of the line of scrimmage to help break-up this checkdown pass to the running back. The right tackle’s job is to clear the passing lanes, but Dupree’ impressive first step completely burns him from the snap.
Dupree doesn’t have a developed repetoire of pass rush techniques yet and currently is winning his match-ups immediately off of the snap due to a lightning quick-step or by being physically more dominant than the opposing blocker. Here Dupree shows a very impressive bullrush to completely dominate the RT back into the RB. If no RB was there this is a sack immediately off of the play.
Duprees shows a good fake inside to set up outside pass rush, and hips to turn the corner, but needs to finish the the club-move with a swim and ice-pick to the back of the offensive tackle to save steps and go right through the offensive lineman.
Here’s another club-swim of his where he gets good penetration from a good initial move.
Dupree showed rare flashes of stringing multiple pass rush moves together. Here Dupree actually strung two pass rush moves together. Dupree attempts to club-swim but offensive tackle didn’t bite. However, the offfensive tackle was still off-balanced, so Dupree finished him off with a good club move to get him out of the way. If quarterback held onto the ball any bit longer this would have been at least a hit, if not a sack.
In this play, Dupree needs to get better at planning his next move. After the bull-rush doesn’t work here, the next logical move is a bull-jerk as the right tackle has already dropped his hips to fully take on the bull-rush. The bull-jerk takes advantage of this reaction to the bull-rush to use his weight against him.
