Strong Points

Dominated FCS level of competition the past three years. Has very good size and strength. Good athlete who is more quick than fast. Has very good hands, a large receiving radius and can make the difficult catch. Very good competing for the ball in traffic. Good runner after the catch. Willing blocker. Can return kicks.

Weak Points

Ran much slower than expected at the Combine (4.62). Played against a low level of competition. Played mostly inside and had a limited route tree at Eastern Washington.

The Way We See It

Kupp was the talk of the Senior Bowl and people were saying he could go as high as the second round. That talk ended at the Combine when he ran poorly. As good and productive as Kupp is, wide receiver is a stop watch driven position when it comes to the draft. The way he played at Eastern Washington and the Senior Bowl shows that Kupp has an NFL future, he just won't get drafted as high as some anticipated. While I still see Kupp as a starting NFL slot receiver, I now doubt he gets drafted before the fourth round. Had to really redeem himself at the Eastern Washington Pro Day.
