Draft Scout Deone Bucannon News
04/21/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Defensive Backs: Deone Bucannon, Washington State, 6-1, 211, 4.49...Bucannon may have set an unofficial record for noisy collisions during a truly impactful four years in which he played in every game. Last year was named first-team All-American after 78 solo tackles, three forced fumbles and six interceptions. Frankly: Nevermind his lack of agility, so-so reaction time in coverage and occasional missed tackle. Put him on the field and listen for the wind being knocked out of runners and receivers as if hit by a Mike Tyson body punch. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
04/21/14 - Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: SS Deone Bucannon, Washington State: While Reggie Nelson has free safety locked down, strong safety has been a trouble area. Incumbent starter Taylor Mays is the type that you will always look to replace and if a prospect like Bucannon is still on the board in the second or third round, that time might be now. The Washington State product is a tough, physical player who emphatically throws his body around and will pile up the tackles, but needs to stay under control to make consistent stops. Bucannon has stiff hips and joints, but he plays fast with very good play speed, especially downhill, attacking the line of scrimmage. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/20/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT: SENIOR BOWL WEIGH-IN WINNERS: Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State: At a shade under 6-feet-1 and 216 pounds, Bucannon certainly passed the eyeball test, sporting a muscled-up frame that stood out in comparison to the other safeties in this game. With a 78-inch wingspan, Bucannon also had the widest of any of the safeties measured. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/21/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Safety Deone Bucannon became the first Washington State player since wide receiver Brandon Gibson in 2007 to earn first team all-Pac-12 honors. Bucannon led the Pac-12 in tackles (109) and also had five interceptions and three forced fumbles. - The Sports Xchange
