11/21/13 - 2014 NFL Draft: Washington State's Bucannon passes test vs. Arizona...Boasting a much more imposing frame than in past years, Bucannon certainly looks the part of an NFL player. When attacking the line of scrimmage in run support or protecting the middle against unsuspecting receivers, his closing speed and willingness to drop his shoulder can result in the eye-popping collisions that helped him earn Second Team All-Pac-12 honors last season, despite playing for a 3-9 team.
Bucannon's ability to dictate the action from his traditional strong safety role aided the Cougars' in their road victory over the Wildcats. Don't be surprised if it also generates him a selection within the first 75 picks of the 2014 NFL draft -- a higher position than any Washington State prospect has been drafted in more than a decade. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
