04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 6/187-Josh Bush, S, 5-11, 208, Wake Forest...Converted to safety from cornerback as a senior, when he had six interceptions, and will contribute right away in the secondary and on special teams. COULD SURPRISE: Safety Josh Bush: He won't be a superstar, but his ability to do a little bit of everything-including play special teams-should make him a valuable contributor right away. Bush ran a sub-4.5 40 at the combine, played cornerback at Wake Forest and will provide much-needed depth behind the questionable starting duo of LaRon Landry and Eric Smith. - The Sports Xchange

04/12/2012 - Wake Forest defensive back Josh Bush wasn't invited to any of the postseason all-star games or the combine workouts, but the league-wide trend toward finding guys who can play safety, but possess some cornerback-level cover skills, has helped him a lot in evaluations. Bush likely will be drafted in the middle to late rounds as a free safety, but his sub-4.5 speed, some history at corner in college, and potential for being able to play in the slot and on special teams probably will earn him a paycheck somewhere in the league. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

12/30/2011 - Scouting the Wake Forest pass defense: This is an area of great improvement for the Demon Deacons this year after this unit was continually torched a year ago. There are several factors that have accounted for the turnaround, perhaps starting with redshirt freshman CB Merrill Noel, who set a school record with 19 pass breakups and was named the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year. He has help in the secondary from All-ACC first team selection S Josh Bush along with S Cyhl Quarles, who has been the team's leading tackler at times. - The Sports Xchange

08/09/2011 - Safety Josh Bush moved to the safety position after playing as a cornerback last season. Now a fifth-year senior, he goes to a role that's probably a more natural position for him, coach Jim Grobe said. He has started in 16 games in his career, including eight games at cornerback in 2010. - The Sports Xchange
