BIO: Three-year starter awarded both All-America and All-Conference honors last year.
POSITIVES: Hard-working yet limited lineman best in confined quarters. Sets quickly in pass protection, displays adequate adjustment and keeps his feet moving throughout the play. Sets with a wide base, strong at the point and a solid position blocker who turns opponents off the line. Quick into blocks or out on the second level.
NEGATIVES: Marginal athlete exploited by quick, nimble opponents. Does not play with great body control or balance. Lacks blocking range.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working overachiever, Buckley has been a durable lineman at several different positions. Understands the game and could be an inexpensive backup in the NFL.
