SALT LAKE CITY – The 2024 NFL Draft is around the corner which means it is time to examine where your favorite former Utes could land.

Today we take a closer look at former Utah football safety Cole Bishop.

Perhaps Bishop’s most memorable game came in Utah’s first-ever Rose Bowl appearance against an Ohio State team that featured quarterback CJ Stroud. Bishop recorded eight total tackles and a fumble recovery in that game putting him on the map.

The Bills have the potential to reunite Bishop with former Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid while the Packers (fanwise) have been buzzing a lot over the former Utah safety.

A possible interesting aside: while not listed by PFF as needing safeties, the New Orleans Saints did interview both Cole Bishop and Sione Vaki after Pro Day wrapped up.
