NFL teams meeting with Deone Bucannon
Thought Deone Bucannon displayed best press technique & jam in one on ones, which surprised considering he's a safety.— Alex Brown (@OS_AlexBrown) January 21, 2014
Deone Bucannon's career as a Washington State football player may be over, but his professional journey is just beginning. He's currently in Mobile, Ala., practicing for the Senior Bowl, an annual showcase of NFL draft hopefuls. The game takes secondary importance, however, to the week preceding it, in which NFL scouts can evaluate the players while they practice and meet with them afterwards.
More after the jump.
Reports have the Broncos, Chargers and Eagles meeting with the talented safety today, and CBS projects him as the No. 1 strong safety in the draft. While scouts have knocked Bucannon for appearing a bit stiff in college, his running has drawn praise so far and NFL Network analysts compared him to Kam Chancellor.
Deone Bucannon measured in at 6-1/216 with 78 wingspan. Very Seahawk-y measurements there.— Michael Sanders (@BigMikeSanders) January 20, 2014
Keep an eye on Washington State SS Deone Bucannon. Has size (6-1, 216), will close on the ball with some speed & he wants to compete.— Matt Bowen (@MattBowen41) January 21, 2014
