Josh Bush
Round 6, Pick 187
Position: S
Class:  Sr
School: Wake Forest
HT: 5'11"
WT: 200 lbs.
40 Time: 4.55
Conference: ACC
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior after totals of 59 tackles/6 interceptions/5 pass breakups. Junior numbers included 33 tackles and four passes defended.

Positives: Opportunistic defensive back with a nice feel for coverage. Picks up assignments, displays the ability to get outside the numbers and effectively tracks the ball in the air. Displays good speed in every direction, shows a nice move to the ball and keeps the action in front of him. Effectively reads the quarterback?s eyes, displays solid instincts and shows skill when placed over the slot receiver. Possesses good hands, chases the action hard and works to defend the run.

Negatives: Needs to improve his backpedal. Overpursues the action on occasion. Possesses average size/speed numbers.

Analysis: Bush is an underrated safety who consistently comes up with a big play during a game?s important moments. He's a tough defender with the ability to be used in several defensive systems at the next level and could be an asset as a dime back/special teams player.

Projection: 6th
