Three-year starter named Second Team All-MAC in 2016. Played right tackle in all 32 of his starts.
College tackle who projects to guard. Blocks with good lean, gets leverage on opponents and anchors in pass protection. Fundamentally sound, works blocks and very good with his hands. Explosive at the point of attack, controls opponents and turns them from the line run blocking. Displays a good degree of quickness in his game, stays square and keeps his feet and hands active.
Heavy footed. Struggles readjusting or redirecting to linebackers and ineffective blocking in motion. Could stand to shed some weight.
Buchanan is slightly underrated offering the size for guard in a conventional blocking scheme which does not require him to cover much area.
