Javon Bullard - Georgia

Javon Bullard is a 5'11", 195-pound safety out of Georgia. He's being projected as a late second-rounder. The fact there seems to be a significant drop from Nubin to the consensus number two safety, is a reason I could see the Bills going safety in the first round with Nubin. The class of wide receivers this year is very deep, and Buffalo could land a solid potential number two wide receiver with their second pick. Regardless, Bullard is still a solid option. He's not your ball-hawking type safety, having only two interceptions in three seasons at Georgia but his cover skills are there with the best of them, allowing a QB rating of only 36.6 when targeted in the passing game.

NFLDraftbuzz.com rated him an 85.4, ranked him as the 13th best defensive back (fourth best safety), and 63rd overall prospect in the draft. Pro Football Focus gave him a grade of 82.8, is their second-best safety and number 55 overall prospect. Over the last two seasons, he played nearly 1,100 snaps, recoding 80 total tackles.
