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.
