Pos: 
Three-year starter who made a solid recovery last season after an injury that kept him on the sidelines for most of 2017. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action and displays a sense of timing and solid ball skills. Quickly locates the pass in the air and has a burst to the ball out of his plant along with next-level closing speed. Displays a sense of timing, competes to defend the throw and forcefully makes his way up the field to defend screen passes and make plays against the run. Works with safeties to bracket receivers over the middle of the field. Has nice length.
Neg: 
Prefers to side shuffle down the field and must work on his backpedal. Lacks great deep speed.
Analysis: 
Pulley was graded as draftable prior to the 2017 season but spent most of the year on the bench with the pectoral injury. He rebounded well last season and possesses the size and ball skills to be used as a dime back in either man or zone coverage.
