Michael Buchanan

School: Illinois
Position: OLB
Bio: Three-year starter twice awarded all-Conference honors. Finished his senior season with 57 tackles/7 tackles for loss/4.5 sacks after 64/13.5/7.5 as a junior.
Positive: Once highly rated pass rusher coming off a disappointing season. Solid, quick athlete who immediately changes direction and makes plays anywhere on the field. Occasionally stood up over tackle. Plays with good balance and works his hands throughout the action. Shows an array of moves getting off blocks.
Negative: Easily handled at the point of attack by a single blocker or washed away from the play. Shows average speed in backside pursuit.
Analysis: Expectations were high for Buchanan after a terrific junior campaign but he disappeared for stretches in 2012 and all too often was a nonfactor in games. He offers potential as a one-gap defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker as well as the underlying skills to play at the next level but he must prove his 2012 season
