BIO: Three-year starter at defensive end who posted 25/6.5/5 as a senior after 17/4/3 the prior season.
POSITIVES: Hard-working defender with good football intelligence. Immediately gets off the snap with a quick first step, displays explosion to his game and plays with leverage. Works his hands to get off blocks, wedges between lineman and quickly closes on the quarterback. Reads or anticipates the action and immediately locates the ball.
NEGATIVES: More quick than fast and does not display a sustained burst of speed. Marginal size and struggles in run defense.
ANALYSIS: A defender who leaves it on the field, Budinscak possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Has a chance as a reserve tackle but only if he adds bulk to his frame.
