CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler has released his second mock draft of the offseason and after initially having the Pittsburgh Steelers select Washington defensive tackle Danny Shelton in his previous mock, this time around Brugler has Kentucky outside linebacker Alvin Dupree as the 22nd overall pick.
With Jason Worilds expected to sign elsewhere in free agency, the Steelers will be looking for a young pass rusher to groom in the draft. A former tight end, Dupree is still raw in certain areas, but the natural athleticism is outstanding.
At this point I think Brugler is a little bold in saying that Jason Worilds is expected to sign elsewhere as that has really yet to be determined. However, even if Worilds is re-signed this offseason it’s obvious that the team could use some depth at the outside position.
It just so happens that Alex Kozora recently profiled Dupree and if you’ve yet to read that breakdown I highly suggest you do.
