Malachi Dupre NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’2 196lbs
- Ball skills
Analysis: Despite leading the Tigers is receptions and receiving yards, Malachi Dupre was never voted first or second team All-SEC. That had to do with his inconsistent quarterback play while in college. He has the desired size and athletic ability for the position. He is experienced at multiple receiver spots. More talented than production would dictate. Tracks the deep throws like an outfielder and can adjust catch positioning without taking his eye off the ball. Consistently solid catch rate throughout his career. Adjusts to low throws and balls behind him to make the catch.
- More explosion off the snap
- More crisp routes
- Separation issues
- Lack of on-field production (due to QB’s)
Analysis: Malachi Dupre lacks upfield juice into his routes. Vertical push doesn’t appear to threaten cornerbacks. Needs to play faster off the snap. Slow to sink and open on curls. His biggest weakness at this point in his career is his route running. He does not have the sharp, crisp routes you want at the next level. His route tree is a little bare. Tends to tip his hand early allowing cornerbacks to match his patterns. Stalk-blocker with marginal aggression and sustain after initial contact.
