BIO: Three-year starter who posted 184/12/1 as a senior, setting the KSU single-season record for tackles. Junior totals included 135/10/1 after a sophomore campaign of 68/4/1.
POSITIVES: Explosive yet undersized collegiate linebacker that projects to safety at the next level. Quick to diagnose the action, immediately picks up cover assignments and makes plays sideline-to-sideline. Wedges through blocks to get to the action and displays a burst of closing speed. Solid in pass coverage and gets depth on drops. Quickly changes direction in pursuit of the ball carrier. Solid tackling techniques.
NEGATIVES: Small and taken out by blocks. Lacks body control, over-pursues the action and not efficient.
ANALYSIS: One of KSU's most productive defenders the past three seasons, Buhl exploits his quickness and explosion to get the job done. Possesses both the cover skills and tenacity to make a move to strong safety in the NFL.
