Who has the better chance: Dural with the Saints or Dupre with the Packers
Dupre has amazing physical talent but just can't seem to put it together. The Saints love their UDFAs and Dural is a gamer who can make the big catches.

Who do you think has the best chance to make a roster?

To me it has to be Dural. I'm not bashing Dupree but after 3 years, smaller less athletic corners can still jam him up and disrupt his route.

Dural never really was the same after his injury.

But I think both have a good shot. Both teams have weak WR groups.

It's a tough call.

I think Dural has generally better hands although not great.

Dupre. Let's be honest here. His hands are VERY mediocre AND That is the softest playing big receiver I've seen in a looooooong time. Dude is a threat to lose jump balls to a 5'9" cornerback.

But, at the same time, Dupre at least appears to be much more physically talented. Maybe he'll find football Jesus and take advantage of it. He's not super fast, but, he's decent fast and a guy his size SHOULD be a pretty friggin solid possession receiver.

Dupre, Packers had had some bad rookie WR's and seem to go 4 wide consistently

I think Dupre has never particularly cared enough. Getting drafted so late could change that and push him to actually try and become a great receiver. He's got all the talent, just has never seemed to have the work ethic

If the prospect of getting a multi-million dollar contract if only he showed SOMETHING at his size didn't motivate him, you're not likely to see motivation once he gets his first few NFL checks........even at the minimum.

Dural. Does the smaller things better.

Both QBs deliver quickly to any receiver, wide or not, that flashes open. The small things help create that window.

I guess. We heard this continuously during his tenure at LSU, but never really saw it.

Durans. I think Duran is a better football player than Chi. Chi might be a better athlete but he just doesn't seem like he has good football instincts. Durable was a pretty damn good before his injury. Hope with a good QB and play caller, he will shine

Dupre in GB has better shot. Saints have a lot of WR talent ahead of him and the organization is in flux. Drew might be gone after next year and there's no telling what Payton doesn. GB has an org structure that's not going anywhere and they are not as deep at WR. But it will be up to Dupre to "mature" quickly.

If dural can get back to his pre injury form, which I believe he will, he will be leaps and bounds better that dupre

Wish all the success for both but I believe Dupre will do great things for the Packers. Possibly a star for the team.

Dupre, Rodgers and McCarthy will make a good receiver out of this kid. I lik Dural but I see him as a Devery Henderson 2.0 with the Saints.

Dupree. More potential and slightly less drops.

I don't really disagree here...I'm saying if Drew is gone after this year, what do you think happens to his chance at production? All depends on what we have at QB.
