2024 NFL Draft: Javon Bullard Draft Profile and Scouting Report

Javon Bullard first hit the field as a true freshman for the Bulldogs, but saw significant playing time, as well as starts, in 2022. He’s a versatile defensive back, appearing at cornerback, nickelback, and safety. With others leaving for the NFL Draft, Javon Bullard is a natural successor for the Bulldogs in the secondary.

Javon Bullard 40 Time

Projected 40 Time: 4.50 seconds

Javon Bullard is a two-year contributor at defensive back for the Georgia Bulldogs. He’s played safety, as well as plenty of nickelback, at the collegiate level. He possesses solid height and adequate weight for the defensive back position in the NFL. Our projected 40 time of 4.50 seconds is a solid time for Javon Bullard when compared to the league average.

Bullard displays a very good ability to patrol his zone and change direction quickly as he patrols the field. Shows a good ability to mirror receivers at the top of their route and through the break. Has a solid ability to leverage the ball and remain over the top on outside runs. He possesses a solid ability to shed blocks and attack the ball when out in space. He has excellent range to attack ball carriers out of the backfield from a deep zone. Displays a good quickness off the line of scrimmage to attack the pocket and pressure the quarterback. His body lean and bend is quite solid for the position, as well.

However, he struggles to mirror quickness off of the line of scrimmage. He possesses an adequate recovery ability to re-attack receivers when he’s lost ground upfield. I’d like to see him be more aggressive on the line of scrimmage with his hands to stun the receiver and disrupt timing of the route. When rushing from the second-level, Bullard struggles to get penetration consistently.
