Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Natural footwork and looks fluid in space with smooth hip action to quickly redirect his momentum. Good speed to stick with receivers up and down the field, staying in their hip pocket. Heady player and good feel in coverage. Good route anticipation and recognition, displaying good eye use to bait-and-drive on throws. Nice job avoiding blocks and throwing his body around in run support. Fast, aggressive blitzer and physical striker. Good vertical ability and gets his hands up to knock down passes. Good experience on special teams coverage and as a return man, averaging 23.4 yards on kickoffs with one returned for a score.

WEAKNESSES: Average size with a narrow frame and limited bulk. Needs to stay disciplined in his backpedal and doesn't always play with proper technique, tending to freelance a lot. Bites hard on fakes and doesn't always play assignment sound as his aggressiveness will get him in trouble at times. Physical, but inconsistent tackler and doesn't always finish in the open field. Limited strength and late shedding blocks. Smallish frame and has some durability concerns as a return man. Some character concerns as he was forced out of Florida's program after missing meetings and arguing with the coaching staff.

Player Overview

A Miami-native, Bushell moved to Texas for his senior season in high school, but returned to his home state and enrolled at Florida to play his college football. But after two seasons in Gainesville, Bushell found himself in the coaches' doghouse and looked to transfer, ending up at Cedar Valley (Texas) Community College in 2010. He transferred to Louisville for the 2011 season, joining his former Gator defensive coordinator Charlie Strong who just finished his first year at the helm of the Cardinals.

Bushell was worked into starting line up at Louisville as a junior (7 starts), recording 50 tackles and an interception. He became the full-time starter in 2012 as a senior and finished second in the Big East with 14 passes defended, adding 1 interception and 62 tackles. Bushell earned First Team All-Conference honors for his senior season and appeared to finally get his head on straight after a rough start to his collegiate career. Although different situations and prospects, Bushell will look to follow in the footsteps of Janoris Jenkins as an ex-Gator cornerback to transfer due to off-field issues and emerge as starter in the NFL.
