Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Arizona was in bad need of safety help before this pick, particularly due to Tyrann Mathieu's season-ending knee injury. Bucannon is a big, fast safety with a fiery demeanor and an ability to make plays both as a hitter and as a ballhawk. His lateral movement isn't ideal for coverage, but Bucannon should fit into a strong safety role while Mathieu works more as a free safety. Bucannon is definitely a big-time IDP consideration heading into this year.
