I know that name well. This guy went off on SHSU in the FCS National Championship game a year ago with two picks on a big time stage. This is a solid pickup for us.

10. MAX BULLOUGH, Michigan State (6-3˝, 248, 4.75, 5-6) – Three-year starter at MLB with a Wonderlic of 31 and 30 reps on the bench press. "Kind of the team's leader," one scout said. "All intangibles, not as good of a football player. Taller and plays tall. Average speed. But he lines everybody up and gets everybody under control." His grandfather Hank was the Packers' defensive coordinator from 1988-'91 after playing 20 games at guard for them in the late 1950s. "His reputation and his name will help him a lot so he'll probably get drafted (late)," a second scout said. "I'd take him as a free agent because he's smart and plays hard." Added a third scout: "Try-hard overachiever. Tough kid. Typical Big Ten guy." From Traverse City, Mich.

This guy is a better athlete than he's given credit for. He has a real chance at making this team.

Williams is the UDFA I'm excited about. Not only did he dominate at his level (7 pick 6's & 2 KR TDs), but he stepped up against better competition. ND State upset FBS schools on the road to open the past 3 seasons. In each game, Williams came up with an INT. Like Bullough, Williams was coached by Crennel at the East West Shriner game.

Guess the GM's and Coaches are smarter than us.

Anyway, has anybody heard anything about where Isaiah Lewis went? He's a SS that played with Bullough at Michigan St. Was hoping the Texans would pick him in the later rounds but he's another one that dropped to UDFA status.
Don't forget about Antonio Richardson (OT). He was projected to go early 2nd to early 3rd & didn't get drafted at all. Anyone know why?

I've got really high hopes for Max Bullough. I enjoyed watching him play last season. I think he'd fit in next to Cush as our 2 down thumper. That is, if he can get back to where he was last season. He kinda disappointed me showing up overweight to the East-West Shrine Game.

Not surprised to see that Bullough is getting the big headlines, but don't sleep on Chris Young. He was a playmaker at ASU and I had him graded as my top sleeper at ILB in this draft.

This makes me happy.

That ILB spot had me worried. I'm glad we got Bullough and if Young is another guy who could come in and shore up that position, I would be happy.

I want to see Cushing outside in base. I think he's a great fit outside opposite Clowney. He can rush and he would be a plus from that position in coverage. I'd play him right over the TE and then move him inside in nickel and dime.

Move Reed inside and let those guys fight it out for the starters roles. Maybe find more help on the waiver wire.

Either that or leave Reed outside because I just don't believe we can start Clowney and Mercilus at OLB. I think both are weakside edge rushers you want getting up the field and I'd prefer Clowney to play that role. I don't think Mercilus can play over the TE. Would much rather leave Reed outside as he can at least be serviceable there. Maybe mercilus can go to ILB. Mercilus is one of only two guys currently on the roster to be listed as just a LB without the inside or outside distinction.

Bullough wasnt on my my radar but after hearing so many positive things about him I went and looked him up.

He's making the team.

He has a really good chance if starting or at the least getting playing time and being a special teams player.

Did you scout Brock Coyle from Montana? I think he's the protypical lb of the future, an over sized safety that never comes off the field. He went to seattle UDFA and if he doesn't make their squad I hope we scoop him up. Does everything well and is extremely quick. Bullough reminds me of the second coming of idiot cannonball, constantly shooting the wrong gap with his hair on fire.
