The Cleveland Browns own the 12th and 19th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. This is a player profile guide of potential player the Browns can draft. Day 9 will feature Kentucky defensive end/outside linebacker Alvin "Bud" Dupree.
Dupree has played in four seasons for the Wildcats, where he totaled 273 tackles in his career, 101 of those were in his senior season. Dupree has 23.5 career sacks. In 2014 Dupree had his one and only interception in game against South Carolina, where he would return it for the game wining touchdown.
Dupree brings incredible speed and athleticism on the defensive side of the ball, he can drop back and play zone if need be with the ability to quickly rush the quarterback in play-action. Dupree also has great ability to defend tight ends. The weaknesses of Dupree are his instincts are below average and can get caught taking bad angles to the ball. The 2014 First-team All-SEC defensive end needs work on hand fighting and lacks urgency in the game.
Dupree has the ability to replace Jabaal Sheard, who signed with the New England Patriots in the offseason. Expect the Browns to take a good look at Dupree with the No. 12 selection.
2015 Draft Combine results:

On Dupree's Pro Day, he completed the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.47 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.49 seconds.
