2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Bryan Bulaga



Strengths:
  • Solid size and playing strength
  • Very physical demeanor; killer instinct
  • Outstanding technician
  • Natural knee bender; generates great leverage
  • Locks on - battle over
  • Quick, smooth feet
  • Great run blocker
  • Good hand use
  • Plays with terrific balance - never on ground
  • Shows ability to slide and mirror vs. speed
  • Very good work ethic
  • Good (not great) athleticism
  • Well coached
  • Smart
  • Adequate range to play left tackle
  • Very polished and Week 1 Starter



    Weaknesses:
  • Scouts question arm length
  • Lacks elite lateral movement
  • Struggles a bit in space
  • Not highly instinctive
  • Doesn't have much upside
  • Sometimes plays too top heavy
  • Durability concerns

    Summary: Bulaga has very good intangibles and I don't see much bust in him though the Robert Gallery comparisons are inevitable. There is a lot to like about Bulaga, but he doesn't have the amazing size of a Jake Long or elite athletic ability of a D'Brickashaw Ferugson to go in the top four picks. Bulaga will play very early on in his career and I expect him to come off the board between Picks 5 and 14. If Bulaga doesn't pan out at left tackle, he will be an All-Pro right tackle.

    Player Comparison: Jake Long. Bulaga doesn't have Long's arm length or height, but they are comparable athletically and play with great technique. I love the physicality they bring to the table.
