Default The Best That Never Was

Before our Time, but 30-Year Anniversary of Marcus Dupree's Arrival

Here's a guy I think a lot of people haven't even heard of, because injuries derailed his path to Canton, like Bo Jackson and sadly now another Marcus, Lattimore. A really good guy too, like Lattimore.

God could not have created a better specimen for an NFL RB than Dupree or Bo Jackson. Bo still has the hype because he produced some NFL Greatness as his career-ending injury didn't happen before he hit the NFL like Dupree's did. But this guy was special. Very similar to Adrian Peterson.... a little faster, not quite as strong -maybe-, but built big and strong like AP.

Not sure if you all caught last year's ESPN 30 for 30 Episode on Dupree.

What about Herschel specimen wise. I'm clearly biased though.

Yeah, Herschel was right there..... to me, those 3 were in a league of their own. Peterson now rivals the 3.

Herschel could easily be above Dupree no argument. I just gave the edge to Dupree because of the goggles.

And these are parts of the reason I get so pizzed off when DBs dive into runner's legs. No matter how God-gifted they are, cheap hits into the knees like Delmas does, like the guy did to McGahee, like the guy did to Peterson, the guy into Lattimore; those bad cheap shots change destiny and I hate it. Tackle like men, waist level or chest....

Specimen wise nobody was in the same class as Walker and Bo Jackson but Dupree was a big guy for the time. Great football speed and just had an ability to glide by people. I thought he was kind of his own worst enemy as far as staying in shape and losing his desire for the game.
