EDGY's take on Bryan Bulaga? Bryan Bulaga is a definite D-1 caliber prospect that I have a feeling will draw several close looks this spring and beyond. Bulaga simply put is a big and athletic kid who can move. Bulaga plays tight end and defensive end for the Hurricanes, and he remains a prospect who has the attributes to either remain at those positions at the next level, or Bulaga could definitely draw looks as a prospect who could add size and find a home say on the offensive line? Bulaga no question has a nose for the ball on the defensive side of the ball. Bulaga has very good mobility and his junior tape shows a player with exceptional upside and promise.
