I'll have to see more of Bullock before I'm convinced he is significantly better than his predecessor. In college, he had a ~33% touchback rate on kickoffs in 2011 (~11 to 16% in previous years).

Kickoff Split Stats
He seems to be a dead accurate FG kicker inside the 50. But did not have a FG longer than 52 yds in college (1 yd better than Graham's best last year and 1 yd less than Graham's longest field goals in past years), a mark he matched in a Texans preseason game prior to his injury. Of course, then there is always the question how he will kick under NFL pressure situations. We will soon find out.
