Malachi Dupre hopes to parlay great physical ability and a big bowl game effort this year into a high NFL draft pick.

Dupre, the junior wide receiver out of John Curtis, announced his departure to the NFL on Friday:

“It is time to part way with the great place I have called home for the past three years, but every ending has a new beginning and that new beginning for me is pursuing another dream of mine and that is to play in the National Football League,” he posted in a message on Twitter Friday.

Dupre is the fourth LSU player to declare of the draft, joining Leonard Fournette, Davon Godchaux and Jamal Adams.

In LSU’s Citrus Bowl win over Louisville in Orlando on Dec. 31, Dupre had seven catches for a career high 139 yards including several impress grabs. The 6-4, 195-pounder is currently projected as a second or third-round draft pick.
