The Washington State great has started three of the Cardinals’ four games this season and is averaging five tackles per game. His 20 total tackles — 19 of them solo — are fourth-best on the squad.
Bucannon was the Cardinals' first-round selection (27th overall) in the 2014 draft, and just the second safety ever selected by the team in the first round -- and the first since fellow Cougar standout Ken Greene in 1978.
Here’s how all the NFL Cougs performed in Week 5:
Husain Abdullah, S, Kansas City, 6th season: Posted eight tackles (5 solo) in the Chiefs’ 22-17 loss to San Francisco.
Deone Bucannon, S, Arizona, Rookie: Recorded six solo tackles in the Cardinals’ 41-20 loss to Denver.
