Alex Bullard Sees Time With Lions First Team Offense

There’s a very good chance that Tennessee’s entire starting offensive line from the 2013 season will collectively be on NFL roster this season.

Alex Bullard, Tennessee’s starting left guard in 2013, is one of those players hoping to make an NFL roster.

The former Vol is apparently making a good impression, as he received some first team reps on Tuesday.

Bullard isn’t a threat to win the Lions’ starting left guard job by any means. He was simply filling in for Rob Sims, the expected starter.

But it is obviously a great sign for Bullard’s chances of making the roster that he’s getting some first team reps.

Bullard is an extremely versatile offensive lineman. He’s capable of playing all of the positions on the line. During his time at Tennessee he started games at center, left guard and right guard. He also competed for playing time as a tackle.

Michael Rothstein, of ESPN.com, says Bullard is a “longshot” to make the roster.

That’s not something I necessarily agree with.

It might be an uphill battle for Bullard, but the signs are positive and I think he’ll make the Lions’ 53-man roster.
