BIO: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his senior and junior campaigns.
POSITIVES: Outstanding position blocker best in a small area. Quick off the snap, blocks with forward lean and stays square. Works his hands throughout the action. Gets movement from run blocks turning opponents off the line and anchors in pass protection. Bends his knees working to play with leverage, helps out teammates and always looking to hit someone. An alert lineman who works hard.
NEGATIVES: Not light on his feet, marginal skills in motion and lacks adjustment. Lacks top blocking range and not effective sliding in space.
ANALYSIS: A tough competitor with good size and growth potential, Buenning is a solid technician with a nice game. Just a marginal athlete lacking the great upside for the next level, he is a typical hard-working, slug-it-out lineman from Wisconsin who projects well to the next level.
