Malachi Dupre’s Advanced Stats & Metrics Profile

Dupre’s average 4.52 40-yard dash and subsequent 95.2 Height-adjusted Speed Score (HaSS) place him in the 57th and 51st-percentile respectively. However, a 134.7 (96th-percentile) Burst Score highlights his athleticism. Dupre’s burst, along with his 10.12 (71st-percentile) Catch Radius, can help alleviate some of the apprehension of his poor quantitative statistics.

Dupre has the requisite size and athletic ability to play the split end/X position at the next level. Dupre’s lack of college production, despite the dominator rating, leaves many wanting more. NFL teams, as well as dynasty owners, would do well to stay away from Dupre on draft night. Friends don’t let friends draft Dupre.
