Calen Bullock addresses a huge need for the Buffalo Bills. With the likely retirement of Micah Hyde and the unknown of Jordan Poyer, Buffalo will need to find some answers at the safety position, maybe even two. Bullock offers excellent size at 6'3" and weighs 190 pounds. NFLDraftbuzz.com has him projected to go in the second round and will be a great addition to the Bills' defense. Pro Football Focus gave Bullock a 71.5 grade, ranked him the fourth-best safety in the class, and 60th overall prospect.

He has a reported 40-time of 4.55 and is one of the better man/press coverage safeties in the draft. He's a two-year starter with USC and played a total of 2,102 snaps. Last season, he recorded 54 tackles, ten assists, and two interceptions. In 2022, his first year as a full-time starter, he had 41 tackles, 12 assists and five interceptions. For the record, Kamren Kinchens is a popular name among Bills fans but Bullock is rated ahead of Kinchens on most draft boards.
