04/30/2012 - For their first nine seasons, the Texans knew Kris Brown was their kicker. Then they signed Neil Rackers to beat out Brown, who was cut in 2009. Rackers kicked in 2010 and 2011, scoring 124 points and a team-record 135 points. Last season, though, Rackers missed six field goals, three more than the previous season. The coaches seemed to lose confidence in him. They offered him the minimum salary to return, but he signed with Washington. That left them without a kicker on the roster. General manager Rick Smith used a fifth-round pick on Randy Bullock, who grew up in Klein, a Houston suburb, and kicked at Texas A&M. Special teams coordinator Joe Marciano scouted Bullock thoroughly at the Combine and at his Pro Day. They thought enough of him to take him in the fifth round rather than wait until the sixth and hope he was still on the board. - The Sports Xchange

04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Texans' picks: Round 5/161 - Randy Bullock, K, 5-9, 205, Texas A&M...They offered Neil Rackers the minimum, and he accepted the minimum but with Washington. That left them with no kicker. Bullock won the Lou Groza Award as a senior at Texas A&M, and now he'll return to Houston to kick for his hometown team. - The Sports Xchange

04/19/2012 - It was a simple question. During interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine, Houston Texans special teams coach Joe Marciano asked Texas A&M kicker Randy Bullock how he would handle his first adverse situation in the NFL. "You've never had a slump," Marciano said. "What happens when you have your first one?" Bullock, without blinking an eye, said, "Coach, my dad died when I was 15. How much more adversity is there?" Bullock was a freshman at Klein High School in Houston in 2004 when he and his older brother, Rhett, went on a hunting trip to South Texas with their father, Rich. On the final day of the trip, two days before Christmas, Rich died of a heart attack. He was 53. "It was tough, but at the same time, my mom and brother were very supportive of me the whole way," Bullock said. "I can't thank them enough for all the support that they've given me. They are a big part of my success." In his locker, Bullock keeps a picture of his dad, to whom he dedicated his senior season. Bullock won the Lou Groza Award as the nation's best kicker after making 29 of 33 field goals. For his career, Bullock made 63 of 80 field-goal attempts. Still, he isn't likely to be drafted. "It's tough, but at the same time, I think I have what it takes," Bullock said. "Draft day, I might not get a phone call, but I think I'll get an opportunity to go to camp somewhere and compete for a job." - Charean Williams, The Sacramento Bee

02/24/2012 - Randy Bullock knows there is a chance -- a good chance -- he doesn't get drafted. But the Texas A&M kicker's NFL future could be helped by the success of Dan Bailey and several other rookie kickers in recent seasons. After beating out a slew of veteran kickers in the preseason, Bailey was 32 for 37 on field goals with four game-winners in his first season for the Cowboys. "I think that helps a lot," Bullock said. "I think the more that happens, the more teams are going to be willing to take a look at a rookie." Bullock, who measured 5-foot-10 and weighed 205 pounds, won the Lou Groza Award as college football's top kicker last season. He made 25 of 28 field goals, including a 52-yarder vs. Texas. Still, it might not be enough to get him drafted. One kicker was drafted last year. "It's different," Bullock said. "That's just one of the things with the kicking position: Nothing is guaranteed. Some of the guys you're competing against can be 15 years older than you. That's when the business side of everything takes place, whether they want a big-name guy for a lot of money or take a gamble on a younger guy for less." - Charean Williams, The Fort Worth Star Telegram

12/31/2011 - Scouting the Texas A&M special teams: PK Randy Bullock, a finalist for the Groza Award, was among the most accurate kickers in the country, connecting on 25 of 29 field goal attempts. His longest was from 52 yards. Injuries to Judie and Gray hurt the return game, though PR Dustin Harris emerged as a threat, leading the Big 12 with a 20.1-yard return average, with one touchdown. A&M was solid in kickoff coverage, but ranked ninth in the Big 12 covering punts with a 35.5-yard net average. - The Sports Xchange

"I'm humbled by this tremendous honor because I know how many great placekickers there are around the nation," Bullock said. "I dedicated my senior season to my father and being a finalist for the Groza Award was one of my biggest goals. I can't express how much it means to me to be able to win this award for my family, Coach (Mike) Sherman and all my Texas A&M teammates and coaches."

09/28/2011 - LOOKING GOOD: PK Randy Bullock connected for a pair of first-half field goals from 43 and 35 yards out, though those kicks were a result of some ineptitude as well, since A&M settled for field goals. Touchdowns on those drives could have possibly iced the outcome at halftime. A&M also downed two of three punts inside the 20 as P Ryan Epperson averaged 41 yards. Special teams did avert one huge play when a 95-yard kickoff return by the Cowboys was wiped out by a hold. - The Sports Xchange

09/28/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: PK Randy Bullock - Solid as a senior, Bullock connected on field goals of 43 and 35 yards against Oklahoma State and became the seventh kicker in A&M history with 40 or more field goals.
