Grading System
ROD GULLEY
Position: S
Class: Sr
School: McNeese St.
Conference: Southland
Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 190
40 Time: 4.65
Grade: 3

BIO: First-team all-conference selection as a senior after posting 61/2/9. Totaled 98 tackles and intercepted nine passes as a junior, returning two for touchdowns.

POSITIVES: Hard-hitting safety who displays solid cover skills in zone. Quick reading the action, explosive up the field and tees off on opposing ball carriers. Reads the quarterback, covers well between the hashes and good hands for the pick.

NEGATIVES: Not smooth transitioning off the line if placed over the slot receiver, lacks man-to-man cover skills and doesn't show sideline-to-sideline range.

ANALYSIS: Somewhat overlooked in scouting circles, Gulley stepped up his game as a junior then seemed to level off last season. Offers the skills and tenacity to play the strong safety position, but can only be effective in a limited number of systems.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
