Draft Rewind 2013 – Michael Buchanan – New England Patriots

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MICHAEL BUCHANAN: Illinois, 6051 252 4.73. Three-year starter. Projects to an outside 3-4 linebacker who can drop into coverage. A high cut and long limbed slender athlete. Experience with his hand in the dirt or standing up as an outside linebacker. Good lateral quickness. An active player who can slip a block, burst to the quarterback, and get his hands up in the throwing lane. Moved around the defense to take advantage of match-ups. Has definite pass rush skills worth developing. Needs more core strength to anchor and stack the run right at him. May be hard to gain weight like Dion Jordan. 2012 stats: 57 T, 7 TFL, 4.5 sacks, 5 PBU, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 1.87, right 2.03. OSR:11/ 23. Fifth/sixth round. (A-34, H-9 7/8, BP-22, 10-1.65).
