Former Wildcat Bud Dupree skyrocketing up NFL Draft boards

The 2015 NFL season opens 20 weeks from today, but for former Kentucky Wildcat star Alvin “Bud” Dupree, his professional football career kicks off in just four days in Chicago.

Fans and prospects will take over the Windy City when the NFL Draft rolls into town this Thursday, and recent projections peg Dupree as a first-round pick.

The defensive specialist tore up the NFL Combine in February and has been skyrocketing up draft boards ever since, garnering interest from teams with as high as the sixth overall pick.

How high can Bud climb before Thursday, and how will he perform in his rookie season?
