Kentucky's Jaleel Hytchye Implies Wildcats' Defensive End Alvin Dupree Will Be Better Than Jadeveon Clowney

In some people's minds, Jadeveon Clowney is the most talented defensive end to ever play college football. The 2014 NFL Draft's No. 1 pick spent three seasons at South Carolina, totaling 24 sacks, 130 tackles, and one helmet-smashing hit during the 2013 Outback Bowl. 

It would be hard for any college defensive end to come close to matching Clowney's ability during the 2014 season. Kentucky cornerback Jaleel Hytchye thinks his teammate, senior defensive end Alvin Dupree, known as "Bud," could be better than Clowney was. 

Last season, Dupree was an All-SEC second-team performer, racking up seven sacks and 61 tackles. Statistically, he could be more impressive in 2014 than Clowney was in 2013. The former South Carolina defensive end had only 40 tackles and three sacks during his final collegiate season. 

Nearly every NFL scout will say, though, that Clowney's on another level--talent wise--than any current collegiate defensive lineman.
