Bucannon is my draft crush .. He had a great season, senior bowl and killed it at the combine. If he played at Alabama instead of Washington State, people would all over his nut sack. He hits like Whitner, but can run better and is not a liability in coverage.
Have to disagree with you on this one. Bucannon is a thinker not a reacter IMO. I've seen him get burned way too easily, take bad angles, jog when could've possibly made a play, etc. And he's severely lacking agility. He's an athlete, but I don't think he's a very good safety.
That said I can't stand Whitner, so I wouldn't exactly cry about Bucannon replacing him.
