Rank: 
78
Round Drafted:

College: 
Eastern Washington

Through his junior season, Kupp has established eight Big Sky Conference records, as well as 18 school marks and seven NCAA Football Championships records. His 122.4 average reception yards per game is currently a FCS career record, while his other six FCS records were set during his freshman season. His average of 10.4 catches per game in 2015 was also a league record (sixth all-time in FCS), to go along with six career marks he set in just three seasons – all ending with first team All-Big Sky accolades. Kupp even passed for a pair of touchdowns in the 2015 season and had another via punt return, giving him 58 total touchdowns scored and 60 accounted for in his 39-game career (all as a starter). In just three years, he already ranks second in FCS history in touchdown catches (56, two behind the record of 58 set by New Hampshire’s David Ball from 2003-06), second in reception yards (4,764, 486 behind the record of 5,250 set by Elon’s Terrell Hudgins from 2006-09) and fourth in receptions (311, 84 behind the record of 395 set by Elon’s Terrell Hudgins from 2006-09). His 311 career grabs helped him moved past the 301 the immortal Jerry Rice had for Mississippi Valley from 1981-84. Kupp has played just 39 games while all the others ahead of him on those career lists have played at least the 41 Rice played. During the 2015 season, he passed Rice on Oct. 24 for career touchdown receptions, passed him on Nov. 14 for career catches and passed him on Nov. 21 for yards. Kupp won the Jerry Rice Award in 2013 given to the top freshman in FCS. His career catches, yards and TDs are all Big Sky records, and he also established a new league record for average catches per game (7.97), which also ranks third in FCS history. Kupp has averaged a TD reception for every 5.6 catches so far in his career. He has scored at least once in 33 of 39 games he has played, with 22 performances of at least eight catches and 23 with at least 100 receiving yards. With a career average of 15.3 yards per catch (311-4,764), Kupp has had 24 receptions of 40 yards or more, including 11 for scores.
