Analysis

Pass blocking: Takes a strong angle on kick slide, keeps knees bent, head up, and arm extended to keep defenders at bay. Very difficult to get off his blocks if he's mirroring. Has a strong punch. Tends to lunge against inside moves, lacks great recovery speed and can be beaten by secondary rush. Slow to recoil once extended. Hesitates when defenders let up. Gets bull rushed into the pocket by strong ends because he allows their hands into his chest, but typically anchors before reaching the quarterback. Must improve his arm-bar to keep rusher out of the pocket. Inconsistent quickness after the first step in his kick slide makes him susceptible to giving up the edge to quicker pass rushers.

Run blocking: Good positional blocker, well-coached on how to get correct angles. Capable in zone scheme, has a strong combination of agility and strength. Turns his man out of the hole and seals the edge. Attacks defenders in short yardage situations, strong enough to lock on and sustain, even against large ends. Gets low to drive near the goal line.

Pulling/trapping: Isn't asked to pull or trap a lot in Iowa's zone system, but has the quick feet needed to work behind the line and burst through the hole. Usually hits a target on the move and sustains.

Initial Quickness: Brings a very strong punch and pop to his opponent when run blocking, especially for a left tackle. Adequate quickness to pass set from two-point stance.

Downfield: Excellent mobility to get to the second level and beyond. Keeps feet moving and hands strong after initial contact, sustains well against linebackers and safeties. Mirrors quicker players in space. Adjusts to players coming from any angle. Gives effort downfield to block on runs and pass plays.

Intangibles: Considered a very competitive, smart and hard-working leader up front. Fought to return from thyroid condition during 2009. Cleans up piles and defends teammates on the field.

Strengths: Bulaga has great size and speed for the tackle position. Displays initial quickness getting back into his pass protection set and off the ball in the running game. Plays with sound technique. Is a cerebral player. Bulaga’s really competitive, plays until the whistle and will really finish his blocks. Productive in college.

Weakness: There are questions about his lower body strength to hold up at the point of attack and drive defenders backwards. Bulaga can be inconsistent with his footwork when asked to deal with speed rushers or move laterally. Is not a great knee bender.


My Grade: A. Back to back years Thompson goes with the player highest on my board and seemingly the rest of the forum as well. I'll take a Kirk Ferentz-coached players any day of the week, especially one that fits a tremendous long-term need. Bulaga looks and sounds like he was meant to play OL in Green Bay. Oh and he loves the cold.

General Consensus on the forum: It can be best summed up by a rival poster:

Couldn't be happier,
Not a flashy pick but a great one! Top 10 prospect in my book and was my favorite for a LONG time, but then he became a higher ranked prospect!

Easy pick for Teddy, but I bet TT was tempted with Dez! Smile

I love this pick Bryan Bulaga gets a year behind Clifton and provides us with our future.

Good pick, but I don't feel he will get much better. He will be a good starter for many years mind you.

Wonder if those 'reports' about Bulaga being a 3rd round prospect were purposefully leaked to the GB press?
