|INTERACTION||Visited Allen Park on April 4|
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 212 40: 4.41 Year: 5Sr
Bio: All-Conference selection the past three years. Senior totals included 83/1/10 after 58/5/9 as a junior.
Pos: Hard-working, take-charge leader flying up draft boards. Effectively quarterbacks the secondary, sees the action and has a burst of closing speed to the play. Explodes up the field in run defense and sacrifices his body to make the tackle. Active in zone coverage and displays a good sense of timing.
Neg: Struggles in man-to-man situations and does not display a decisive move to the ball. Not a technique tackler. Takes a lot of missteps and over-pursues the action.
Analysis: A consistent player at Nebraska, Bullocks turned in an outstanding performances at the Senior Bowl and the combine. Offers a good degree of upside and could be a first-team player in the NFL.
Lions Interest: The team's interest in Bullocks revolves around what they do with the ninth overall selection. If Michael Huff (as expected) joins the team in the first round, Bullocks drops from the team's war room board. However, if either a linebacker, quarterback or offensive lineman are taken with the No. 9 overall pick (assuming Huff is gone), the Nebraska standout becomes a legitimate consideration with the 40th overall pick -- where he is slated to be drafted. It is clear the Lions will address the secondary early in the draft, and while the team could lean towards a cornerback, a playmaking safety in defensive coordinator Donne Henderson's Cover Two scheme is enticing.
