In addition to his 150 tackles, Buchanan also recorded 8.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and one pass defensed last season. He had nine games with at least 10 tackles and five games with at least 15 tackles.
Buchanan is largely viewed as a late-round or priority undrafted prospect, which undoubtedly piques the Giants’ interest given their three seventh-round picks.
Although a bit undersized at 6-foot and 230 pounds, Buchanan lives and breathes football.
“The team that signs me will be getting a player that lives football 24/7. They will be getting someone that prepares like a true professional and always works hard. I can make a big impact on defense and all special teams units. I can also be utilized on the offensive side of the ball if needed. I am someone that will always be a great locker room guy and always represent my team in a positive way. I also bring the ability to lead a group of men and help build/uphold the standard of an organization,” Buchanan told NFL Draft Diamonds.
