Senior Bowl Notes
- Bucannon accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
- He finally was heard from on Tuesday. And, by “heard from”, I mean literally. He popped Wisconsin RB James White in the open field that got a reaction from the NFL people on hand.
- The former Wazzu star finished with three tackles during the game on Saturday.
It's easy to pigeonhole Bucannon as nothing but the fiercest hitter in college football. After all, he is definitely one of the most intimidating secondary players in recent memory.
But, that's not telling the entire story. He also showed his ball skills and ability to play the middle of the field. Through his four years at Washington State, Bucannon finished with 15 interceptions, in addtion to the cadre of knockout hits for which he became a Youtube legend.
The 2014 safety class isn't loaded, to say the least, and with a solid showing in Mobile, Bucannon can more than raise his stock in the eyes of the NFL scouts.
