INDIANAPOLIS — The Pittsburgh Steelers are meeting formally with two safeties at the NFL Combine, Minnesota’s Tyler Nubin and USC’s Calen Bullock. Nubin is thought of as potentially the top safety in the entire 2024 NFL Draft, while Bullock is thought of as a potential third-round pick. Even in a weaker safety class, both stick out in their ways.

For Nubin, it is his versatility paired with elite ball skills. Nubin plays all over the formation, though Minnesota loved to use him back at post-safety, and has grabbed 13 interceptions over his career with the Golden Gophers. Mentored by Buccaneers star Antoine Winfield Jr., Nubin has become the guy Winfield was Minnesota and is now set up to be a highly picked player in the NFL Draft as a result.

On the other hand, Bullock is a true centerfielder on the back end with fantastic range. Just like Nubin, Bullock flashes his ball skills throughout his tape and game history. It’s not a surprise that, as a result, Bullock would be on their radar. They have shown a significant interest in trying to fill their secondary full of playmakers, and so this tracks.

However, they were the only two safeties known to have formal meetings with the Steelers. Plenty of others had informal meetings, but with only 45 formal meetings, those take precedence and say something significant when they do happen. Nubin and Bullock are guys that are rising on the radar with these visits in hand.
