USC S Calen Bullock shares photo of visit with Dolphins

USC Trojans safety Calen Bullock had a pre-draft visit with the Miami Dolphins, he shared on social media Thursday.

On his Instagram story, Bullock posted a photo from inside the Baptist Health Training Complex, the Dolphins’ practice facility located across the street from Hard Rock Stadium.

Bullock earned First Team All-Pac-12 honors in 2023 after recording two interceptions, seven pass breakups, and 63 tackles. The safety, who will turn 21 later this month, opted to forgo his senior season with the Trojans and enter the 2024 NFL draft.

At the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine, Bullock measured in at 6’2, 188 pounds and ran a 4.48 40-yard dash.

According to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, Bullock may better project as a cornerback in the professional ranks after showing a tendency to take poor angles and miss run fits at USC. “Bullock can be scary good in coverage and scary bad as a run defender,” Zierlein wrote.

The Dolphins have a rising star at free safety in Jevon Holland, but a stopgap solution at strong safety in 33-year-old free agent acquisition Jordan Poyer. Miami could use a developmental talent at safety, and could also use depth at cornerback.

In a recent seven-round mock draft posted by ESPN, Bullock was projected to land in the second round.
