The NFL Draft is coming up on Thursday evening. We take a look at the former Georgia defensive back Javon Bullard and what he will bring to the NFL.

It's draft week here in late April. On Thursday evening, college football players across the country will be hearing their names to kickstart their NFL careers. The University of Georgia has placed 27 players in the NFL Draft in just the last two seasons, far more than any other college program. So, as the draft approaches, there are plenty of former Dawgs to watch, like safety, Javon Bullard.

Bullard played just three seasons at Georgia. He entered the program as just a three-star recruit from Baldwin High School in Milledgeville, GA. A cornerback in high school, Bullard quickly made the switch to STAR (nickel corner) the moment he arrived at Georgia. By the time he was a sophomore, Bullard was starting for the 2022 Georgia defense and playing a pivotal role at the STAR. He was multiple times over the defensive player of the game in critical playoff games down the stretch for Georgia's national title run in 2022.

A two year starter and three year contributor, Bullard played all over the field for the Bulldogs. He started out on special teams, as most do for Smart, and eventually became the STAR, then his third and final season in Athens, he bumped back to Safety. Bullard has positional versatitlity, something that has made him advantegeous in the draft process. Additionally, Bullards' 4.47 forty at the NFL Combine put to rest all the questions about his top-end speed and athleticism.
