Overview:

Kupp had an amazing career at Eastern Washington, where he brought in 426 passes, for 6464 receiving yards, and a massive 73 receiving touchdowns. He was their clear go-to receiver. He has good size, he is a solid pass catcher, he is sure handed, and he is just a dynamic playmaker. He is very hard to take down, he has a great stiff arm to get defenders off of him, along with making defenders miss with ease. He is also a good route runner, he is also a solid deep threat, and he breaks tackles with ease. Kupp does not have elite receiver speed, but that does not hurt his game at all. He does tend to drop some easy catches at times. With that said, Kupp is a late day 2 pick, to an early day 3 pick, especially after an impressive Senior Bowl week, and I can see him sneaking into the 1st round when it is all said and done.
