WCB 8 Players who impressed at the 2016 NFL Combine: #5 IDL Deforest Buckner (ORE)(PAC12)...



IDL Deforest Buckner (ORE) 76 Tackles, 9.5 Sacks (2015-16) (Projected top 10 Pick)...


My Thoughts: I'm going to keep this one short and sweet, Buckner is a beast. He accounted for 9.5 sacks last season. I don't really expect him to duplicate those numbers on the pro level, at least not right away. He has a good head for the game but will take a couple of seasons to develop into the beast he truly can be….

BOTTOM LINE: Headed into this season, Buckner was a traits prospect who flashed with quickness, strength and overall athleticism, but he put those traits together in 2015. Buckner has the body type of a classic 3-­4 defensive end who can control the point of attack with length and power, but he has above average pass rush potential for that position which figures to push him into the early stages of round one. Buckner has similar power to former teammate Arik Armstead, but is a much better pass rusher and has a chance to become a dominant force in the NFL.
