Al Dupuy's Bio


NFL Draft Expert -
Al was born in Plaquemine, La., and moved to New Orleans when he was 6 years old. He grew up on Tulane Ave. two blocks from Pelican Stadium and became interested in sports at an early age. He went to Sacred Heart School on Canal St. and attended both East Jefferson and Jesuit High Schools.

After graduation, Al received a certificate for completing the Dale Carnegie Sales Course before becoming a Permanent Group Leader for DCSC. Al then became a Retail Sales Manager for a food broker.

Dupuy grew up attending Tulane games as a kid, getting into Tulane Stadium with the Boy Scouts, He also got into Tiger Stadium by selling drinks during the games. This experience really enhanced his interest in football.

Al's Draft Day Report is going into its 30th year; due to his long-running success, Al has bought out two other draft publications - the locally-based Draft
Scrapbook and nationally-known Pro Prospects. Draft Day Report rates college players going into the professional ranks.
Dupuy appears on WHNO-TV's sportsNOLAtv program on Mondays to provide insights into the NFL Draft process.

Al gathers information on players from all the major colleges and spends countless hours studying film on football prospects. Every year, Dupuy is on the field for the practices at the Senior Bowl, getting a close look at the top senior talent. And Al views all the work-outs at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis each spring.

Dupuy previously worked as the Draft Analyst for 10 years on WWL Radio with Jim Henderson and Archie Manning. The Saints changed its flagship station to WQUE for 3 years, and Al worked as the Draft Analyst for that affiliate with Kaare Johnson. Dupuy is on T.V. and radio both locally and around the country talking football when draft time rolls around each year.

Al lives in Metairie with his wife Pat and has three kids, Bonnie, Terry, and Brad, along with his two grandsons, Eric and Thomas.
