Table inside Article
Bullock is in a class of his own when it comes to defending a large range of space in the defensive backfield and covering every nook and cranny of that responsibility in zone. His presence will allow him to be trusted as a single-high weapon at safety. Playing for an historically bad rush defense for USC, Bullock was a key part of why the Trojans failed to prevent any big plays that got through the second level on the ground. His poor pursuit angles and bad run lane discipline will need big improvement.

OVERVIEW: If going against a pass-heavy offense, Bullock can be a dangerous weapon to roll out on the field with his range and pass instincts. A three-year player for the Trojans, Bullock saw time at safety, nickelback and cornerback, which allows him to quarterback the secondary with an elite understanding of the defensive backfield at any given time. His nine career interceptions make him a takeaway weapon for any team that can pick him up. He can translate his zone abilities into turnovers for his defensive unit.
