Dupree gets some more love here in the four mock drafts provided by the CBS Sports experts. Dupree features twice, while we also see Shane Ray again along with Randy Gregory.

Rob Rang — DE Alvin Dupree, Kentucky

Dane Brugler — DE Shane Ray, Missouri

Pete Prisco — DE Alvin Dupree, Kentucky

Will Brinson — DE Randy Gregory, Nebraska

We’ve taken a look at Dupree and Ray already, but the interesting one here is Randy Gregory.

The Nebraska star was predicted by many to be taken in top ten, but has seen his stock fall dramatically after admitting to testing positive for marijuana at the combine.

On the field, Gregory has the potential to become a fantastic player in Dan Quinn’s system.

The 6’5″, 235-pounder is a tough player who would be able to help out both in stopping the run as well as enhancing the pass rush. He could be a major piece to the rebuild on defense under Quinn, assuming he doesn’t run into any issues off the football field.
