Josh Bullocks - FS - #40

Ok. WTF?

From NFL.com:

Positives: Has a physique with adequate muscle definition, tight waist and hips, good bubble and thick thighs … Solid student athlete who has no problems taking the plays from the board to the field … Spends extra time reviewing film and is well liked by the staff and teammates … Shows good quickness, agility and balance with above-average change-of-direction skills and flexibility … Quick to sniff out the pass play and has an adequate closing burst on the ball … Not a speed burner, but comes to the line of scrimmage quickly to support the run and has enough range to handle two-deep coverage … Can play centerfield, time his jumps and adjust to the ball in flight … Provides a decent thump upon contact in the open field … Shows fluid hips and balance through his backpedal, displaying the speed to stay with backs and tight ends and good plant agility to burst out of his breaks … Can flip his hips, change direction and turn immediately to get an early break on the ball … His field instincts are evident when playing in zone coverage, as he does a good job of keeping plays in front of him … Shows urgency to finish and has excellent timing ability going up for the ball … Has natural hands for the interception and is capable of catching the ball when working in a crowd … His body control and balance allow him to stay tight on the receiver's hips in short-area man coverage … Has adequate strength, but will collide and hit with explosion when he gets a good bead on the receiver … Takes good angles in pursuit and has the burst to cover ground with the ball in the air … Stays in control working in space and knows how to keep his pads low to wrap and secure when tackling.

Negatives: Not as effective defending vs. the run as he is in pass coverage … He is not around the line much, as size and strength issues see him get stymied when trying to face up to offensive linemen … Needs to use his hands with more force in attempts to press and jam before the receiver is able to get into the route … More of a chess master who will try to finesse on the play rather than step up and play with aggression (needs to develop a mean streak) … Gets bounced around a bit working near the pile, lacking the raw strength to stack and control in run force (only one stop behind the line of scrimmage in 36 games) … Best when making plays in front of him, as he has adequate speed, but not the sudden burst of acceleration to handle the speedier receivers in the deep zone.
Sounds like the Courtney Watson of FS's. We need a freakin' LB. I hope the FO knows something we don't. I was ok with an OT in the first, but we need a DT or a freakin' LB LOOMIS YOU AZZ.

from espn-
He was too inconsistent and isn\'t a complete enough player to gamble on in the first two rounds

forget burnett, thurman, justin miller or corey webster

all i want to hear is how billy spins this into greatness

That pick was very odd. We need a linebacker. Someone please make sense of this? It is nuts. You can\'t tell me that Burnett wasn\'t the pick we should have made here.

Maybe there is a deal in the works - Bullocks and Howard for something? I don\'t get it. I can\'t even come up with anything that makes this pick rational.

I love the 1st pick with Brown.

I don\'t understsand the 2nd pick at all.

I suppose they went with the best player avaliable approach.

Honestly, I never heard of Josh Bullocks.

Josh Bullocks was no where near BPA at that point.

As far as all of this goes, all you guys who wanted to keep Howard, you\'re getting exactly what you wanted. Even if we could trade him now, who would be worth getting?

Blah.

Damn. Some of you guys need to get off of your emotional trip

Obviously Bullocks was the BPA on the SAINTS\' board.

I don\'t agree with it.

I\'m just trying to make some damn sense of it.

Geez!!!!!!!

I don\'t think I\'m being emotional. I would like an explanation of this pick that makes it seem even remotely rational. Saying that he was BPA on our board is not an explanation that makes it rational - as I\'d like to know how he got there on our board before I decide that this makes some sense. That was quite simply a terrible pick, as terrible as Stinch or Henderson when we needed a LB.

You want an explaination, then you\'re not going to get one here. Unless Jim Haslett\'s son is posting here.

All I said was I thought they went with the BPA approach. That\'s the only thing that makes sense to me.

Now, whether Bullocks was the BPA is debatable. I know nothing about the dude. Which I CLEARLY stated.
