Former LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre would have benefited from an extra year in Baton Rogue, according to one NFL scout.
“I was asked by someone at the school about where he would be drafted if he came out and I told them on the third day,” the scout said. “I recommended he go back to school. His size is interesting but I don’t see a fast player.”
Dupre led LSU in receptions and receiving yards the past two seasons, although he was held under 700 yards both years.
In fairness, LSU struggled to find consistency at quarterback throughout Dupre’s career. He played with three different starting quarterbacks during three seasons.
Teammate Travin Dural was also limited by the team’s quarterback woes. According to one AFC scout, his modest stats shouldn’t scare teams.
“Remember that this is the same program that was able to hold Beckham (Odell Beckham Jr.) and Jarvis Landry at bay in college,” the scout told NFL.com. “LSU’s quarterbacks stink. Dural gets a projection grade because he just didn’t do enough on tape.”
