Reminds Us Of
We see some of Bud Dupree in Jihaad Campbell due to the similarities in frame, athleticism and projected positional progression. Dupree began his career as a 220-pound off-ball linebacker before ultimately growing into a 265-pound, athletic edge rusher. We would not be surprised to see Campbell take a similar path.
