Positive: Explosive pursuit linebacker who makes plays sideline to sideline. Fast enough to cut corners off from running backs, displays the ability to stay with receivers in coverage, and shows a lot of quickness in his overall game. Possesses a great burst to the action, fluid turning his hips in transition, and quickly changes direction if necessary. Covers a lot of area on the field and fast enough to pursue the action from the back side.
Negative: Marginally instinctive. Easily taken from the action by tight ends or receivers.
Analysis: Bussey is an athletic college linebacker that lacks NFL size. He offers potential as a one-gap linebacker and may even get consideration as a conventional strong safety by a number of teams."
