RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A 2014 first-round pick, Bucannon turned in a promising IDP rookie campaign last year. He split time at strong safety with Tony Jefferson but often played a linebacker-type role because of injuries to the Cardinals' defense. That allowed him to pile up 83 tackles on just 692 snaps. Bucannon's ability to pass for a linebacker bodes well for his tackle production, especially since he's likely to play significantly more snaps this season. At 6-1, 208, with sub-4.5 speed and 15 interceptions as a collegian at Washington State, Bucannon could be a standout source of interceptions, too.

2014

At the midpoint of the preseason, Bucannon has yet to surpass second-year pro Tony Jefferson for the strong safety gig, but Tyrann Mathieu will be eased into action due to last December's knee ligament tears, ensuring a decent snap count as his rookie campaign commences. Bucannon, who is well-built at 6-1, 211 with 4.49 wheels and excellent jumping ability, couldn't have been much more productive than he was as a four-year starter at Washington State. He finished his career with 383 tackles in 49 games, good for an average of 7.8 tackles per contest. He also intercepted 15 passes in that span. As a fierce run defender with the ball skills to make plays in coverage, Bucannon has star potential as an IDP.
