Eldra Buckley
SI Grade
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-9.5, 202
40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer awarded All-Conference honors the past two years. Senior rushing totals included 215/1,204/7 when he also added 18 receptions. Junior numbers included 217/1,233/11 on the ground.

POSITIVES: Undersized ball carrier who breaks games open. Runs with excellent balance, body control and has a burst of speed. Easily runs to daylight if given a small amount of open space.

NEGATIVES: Does not have the body to take a consistent pounding at the next level. Marginal pass catcher out of the backfield. Times were poor at the combine.

ANALYSIS: A game-breaking running back who consistently picks up huge chunks of yardage every time he touches the ball, Buckley reminds us of former first-round pick Trung Canidate with his ability to hit the hole then run to daylight.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round
