    2. Josh Bullocks, 6-0 190, JR, Nebraska
    Bullocks is probably the most under rated safety in the nation, heck he is probably the best coverage safety in the country, last year he tied Miami’s Safety Sean Taylor for the most interceptions in the entire nation with 10. He is finally getting some well-deserved recognition, he is one of only five juniors to be selected as a 2004 1st Team Street & Smith’s All-American. Nebraska head coach Frank Solich said Josh Bullocks has improved all phases of his game and has especially improved his tackling. Bullocks said he's also learned plenty from secondary coach Marvin Sanders about reading quarterbacks, guessing where they're going to throw by the position and tilt of their shoulders. "No one covers the field like he does when the ball is in the air," Solich said of Josh Bullocks. "He has great anticipation." Bullocks, the Cornhuskers’ free safety, intercepted 10 passes last year, a school and Big 12 single-season record, making him the nation’s top returning pass thief for 2004. He has 11 career picks, well within reach of Dana Stephenson’s (1967-69) school record of 14. He also made 97 tackles in ’03, was consensus first-team All-Big 12 and AP second-team All-America. Josh is an excellent talent and with his speed his talent projects very favorably in the pros because he is good enough to play corner also. Injured in 2004 but has recently declared for the 2005 NFL Draft. Safety Josh Bullocks, who quietly had one of the better overall combines, was times at a 4.46 and 4.52 in Lincoln, an improvement from Indianapolis. Bullocks was the most popular player amongst scouts. Afterwards several teams including the Chiefs and Texans had him do individual drills. For their part the Dallas Cowboys are thrilled with Bullocks and feel he could immediately produce for the squad.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we took him in the 2nd.

    Seems like a player who could help us immediately.
