The NFL Draft is now a week away which means Deone Bucannon could be a week away from being selected. With the first round next Thursday, Bucannon will likely have to wait a week and a day, but not necessarily.
Bucannon has been a popular prospect in the weeks leading up to draft, from onlookers gushing over his physique at the Senior Bowl to a great showing at the NFL Scouting Combine, to fans just ooohing and aaahing over his highlights. Throughout the time, he's been pegged as a likely second day prospect which means he'd go in the second or third round. That appears to still be the projected range, although he has been mentioned as a possible first-round pick. He's been projected from the first to third rounds in recent mock drafts, with Ourlands slotting him at No. 13 overall, NFL Rough Draft pegging him at No. 45 and NFL Draft Countdown projecting him at No. 72. He went in the middle of the second round in SB Nation's blogger mock draft, landing in Arizona with the No. 52 pick.
From searching through headlines, it appears half the NFL is interested in Bucannon as he's been linked to a number of teams. Here is a smattering of recent Bucannon related headlines:
His agents put together a video on his path to the NFL and of course, it's always a good time to watch Bucannon highlights.
Washington State Cougars add much-needed depth along defensive line - ESPN
Last season the Washington State defensive line scraped by in the Pac-12. The Cougars finished 10th in total defense and ninth in rush defense, but considering that four players accounted for more than 80 percent of their defensive line snaps in a 3-4 formation, that’s not too bad.

The Trojans saw their nine-game winning streak, the longest in program history since 2001 snapped on Tuesday in a 6-2 loss vs. UC Irvine, but the team is looking to regroup as the head out to Washington State for a big Pac-12 series starting on Friday, May 2.
For the past five games the Washington State baseball team has been without coach Donnie Marbut, who was suspended by the Pac-12 after the coach was ejected from WSU’s game at Oregon following a verbal argument with an umpire.
