Breaking: Another Cornhusker makes the leap

After losing cornerback Fabian Washington to the NFL Draft just a week ago another Nebraska Cornhusker will forego his final season of college eligibility in favor of a professional career.

As originally reported last week, we have learned that Nebraska safety Josh Bullocks will announce at a press conference later today he will enter this April's NFL Draft.  Bullocks shattered school and Big 12 Conference records with 10 interceptions last season, and in the process earned first-team All-America honors.  He also posted 49 tackles and broke up five more passes.

An athletic defensive back effective against both the run or pass, Bullocks nicely fits into the draft's first day and could slide into the initial 60-picks with good workouts at the combine.  With Donte' Nicholson of Oklahoma coming off an uninspiring senior campaign and struggling in the Shrine Game, it is not out of the realm of possibility that Bullocks ends up as the second safety drafted in April.
