Dupree Named to NFL.com’s 2015 All-Rookie Team


Pittsburgh Steelers linebsack, Alvin “BUD” Dupree has been named to the NFL All-Rookie team by NFL.com’s senior analyst, Gil Brandt.

Dupree finished his first season with the Steelers with 26 tackles, 6 in the postseason, 4 sacks and a field goal block.  


All four of Dupree’s sacks came in the first half of the season, with his first two coming in Weeks 1 and 2. While the sack production leveled off, Dupree showed he’s a big, athletic guy whose speed and quickness make him hard to block.

He started the season strong, the first person to sack New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady to start off the 2015-16 NFL season.

So, congratulations Bud Dupree! We look forward to much more exciting improvement from you over the next several years to come. #HereWeGo
