Scouting Report
One of the top linebackers in college football last season, Bullough was a key player on a Michigan State defense that was among the best units in the country. A two-time All-Big 10 player, he will bring physicality and toughness to any team he joins. His size is terrific for the position, and Bullough has great strength to fight through blocks and bring down ball carriers. That strength was showcased at the NFL combine, where his 30 bench-press reps tied for the most among linebackers. Bullough was also named the Spartans' captain two years in a row, earning the respect of his teammates. Some of that, at least from a national perspective, came into question when Bullough was suspended from Michigan State's Rose Bowl victory for unspecified disciplinary reasons. The poor judgment is not the only thing holding him back in the eyes of NFL scouts. He's not the most athletic player and struggles in space, making him a liability in man coverage. He also lacks game-changing speed, limiting his ability to rush the passer, make plays on the edge or even be a major factor on kickoff and punt coverage units. However, given the toughness and skills he does have and his all-around approach to the game, Bullough figures to go off the board in the middle of the draft.
