Doug Buckles School: Mississippi
Ht: 6-5.5 Wt: 311 40: 5.53 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter at left guard who played
46 games with the first team in college. Awarded
second team All-SEC honors as a senior.
Tough, consistent blocker best in a small area.
Quick off the snap, plays with a nasty disposition
and a solid position blocker who seals defenders
from the action. Very quick with his hands,
anchors in pass protection and gets movement
from run blocks. Intelligent, understands
the position and works well with teammates.
Immediately picks up stunts or twists thrown
by opponents and plays hard until the whistle
Negatives: Lacks adjustment, not a natural
knee bender and loses out to agile defenders.
Struggles in motion and lumbers around the
Analysis: A scrappy blocker who's been
very reliable on the college level, Buckles offers
outstanding football intellect as well as growth
potential. More of a backup at the next level, he
is the type of prospect who can also see spot
duty as a starter and has the potential to hang
around the NFL for years to come.
