Dupree, 22, finished with 247 tackles and 23.5 sacks in his four year career at Kentucky. He also had 37 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles.
Dupree had a fantastic combine, impressing scouts with his 4.56 second 40-yard dash and 42-inch vertical. That performance helped raise his stock enough to become a first-rounder.
