Pool is getting by on what his reputation carried with him -- the next 'Roy Williams' at Oklahoma. All the hype and everything that surrounded him, he simply hasn't lived up to at all.
But about Bullocks, I doubt you can call his junior season a bust. He was playing under his 3rd DC (defensive coordinator) in 3 years, all of whom implented completely different schemes from the other. The one scheme he excelled in was that of Bo Pelini who let him sit back in a cover 2 zone consistently and just read the QB, react and just play centerfield basically.
This past year Kevin Cosgrove implented a style more or less based off of man coverage and thus why Bullocks INT numbers are WAY down. However it wasn't a bad year, just nothing spectacular.
Cosgrove runs the 'bend but dont break' style of defense that Mike Zimmer seems to love. So that is alot of the reason I do not believe Bullocks would thrive in our type of defensive system. Although not inept at man coverage, Bullocks isn't an Ed Reed type of cover man, although who exactly is?
Bullocks could EASILY be one of the best FS' in all the NFL if he is in the right system. If it were a system of say Lovie Smith in Chicago, it would be right in Bullocks' alley. I sincerely believe that as well.
Bullocks would be a FANTASTIC pickup in round 2 if Zimmer allows him to roam and play centerfield like a FS should be doing to begin with, rather than sticking him on a slot receiver or TE.
