Tim Bulman

Senior Defensive Tackle

No. 96

6-4, 285 pounds

Boston College (MA) HS


2003 stats

- Bulman returns as a senior after compiling 89 tackles in the previous two seasons combined. He had 33 in 2003.

- Bulman was second to defensive line-mate Mathias Kiwanuka in tackles-for-losses with 11.

- He also recorded four sacks, good for third on the team, in a back-up role.

- Tim started one game in 2003- at Temple- for the injured Tom Martin.


- None.

High School Accolades

- Earned SuperPrep All-America honors as a senior.

- 2000 Boston Globe Division One Player of the Year.

- Recorded 17 sacks his senior year.

2004 Outlook

- Bulman has the potential to be the best BC interior lineman since Chris Hovan. His stats were down a season ago from his numbers in 2002, but don't let that fool you. His four sacks, 11 tackles-for-losses and numerous hurries in limited action sum up Bulman's game: he never quits trying to put pressure on the opponents' backfield. Whether it's chasing down a quarterback out of the pocket or forging through the o-line to tackle a running back for a loss, Bulman's motor never quits. He is also deceivingly fast for his size. 

Bulman is poised for a huge season in 2004 as his play at the DT position will go a long way in determining the Eagles' success. He is the clear-cut starter next to Al Washington at defensive tackle after being the team's third DT for the past two seasons. He has the potential to be an All-Conference selection, especially with DT-factory Miami now in the ACC.

Recognition potential

- Bulman has seen consistent playing time at DT since his freshman season, so most BC fans should know who he is heading into his fourth year of play. He's listed at 285 but looks much bigger than that; it will be interesting to see what weight he weighs in at this week. A likely candidate to be named co-defensive captain, Bulman will be heard from a great deal over the course of the season both on and off the field. A breakout year could mean a day one selection in April for the BC High product.
