Strong Points

Very competitive. Chases the ball all over the field. Very consistent tackler. Quick with his pass drops and is very aware in coverage. Has the speed and athleticism to play man on a running back. Good to real good athlete with speed and a burst. Instinctive, consistently finds and gets to the ball. Team captain.

Weak Points

Size, does not have the frame to get much bigger. Not really a take-on type, is better at slipping blocks. Can get overpowered at the point by big offensive linemen.

The Way We See It

Another in a long line of Bulloughs who played at Michigan State, starting with their grandfather Hank Bullough. Riley is an active, instinctive playmaker who lacks size. He is an athlete with speed and is best at slipping blocks or making pursuit plays. Also does a good job in coverage. Lacks the size to be an NFL starter but can be a nickel linebacker and a core special teams player. Late pick with a chance.
