BIO: Second team all-conference choice the past two years after 126/2/7 as a senior and 131/2/4 as a junior. Used at outside linebacker and safety in college.
POSITIVES: Tenacious defender that throws his body around the field looking for physical contact. Relentless in pursuit of the action, flies up the field and hard-hitting. Displays a burst of speed in a straight line and wrap-up tackling. Reads opposing receivers eyes and alert when the pass is in the air.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the footwork in pass defense and overall cover skills to play in deep center field. Overanxious coming up the field and gets caught out of position. Has tackles broken.
ANALYSIS: Bringing a lot of heart and tenacity to the game, Bua is a type of prospect that should flourish in a zone or two-deep type system and also excel on special teams. In a nutshell, a poor manís Adam Archuleta.
