NFL | Bullocks' stock rising

Fri, 28 Apr 2006 14:34:42 -0700

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports Nebraska S Daniel Bullocks has an outside shot of getting into the first round of the NFL Draft. He's on the Cincinnati Bengals' radar screen and there are some in Pittsburgh that would like him to be the first-round choice of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He's popped up here and there in the net mocks. Book on him is that he will be gone by the time the Bengals pick in the 2nd, so if they do covet him, 24 it is.

I can see it, tho. Bullocks is generally well-thought-of (Rob Rang, of nfldraftscout.com, rates him the No. 4 safety overall). It appears he isn't ranked higher not because he can't play -- most profiles I've seen say he is a very good player -- but because he is suspected of having limited upside.

If that sounds familiar, it should. The same thing was said of Madieu Williams.

All that said, Bullocks would surprise me. There's simply too much tier 1.5 and tier 2 DB talent in this draft to reach at 24 for a guy like him, IMHO.

Dennis Grall, of the Daily Press, reports the Cincinnati Bengals have contacted the agent for Central Michigan OL Jeff Jenerou (knee). Jenerou's NFL Draft status is up in the air because of a surgically repaired knee that is still causing problems. It also affected his performance in the pro day at CMU last month, which impacts ratings by scouts as they assess draft prospects. Jenerou has seen various reports where he could be picked in the fourth to seventh round or get signed as a free agent.
