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.
Two things to consider about Bullock. One he was kicking in open air stadiums in college, whereas Reliant should be much easier indoors.
Two the NCAA knockoffs are 5 yards longer than the NFL, so he should have more success on touchbacks than in college.
