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 is very good with his hands. Explosive at the point of attack, controls opponents and turns them from the line as a run blocker. 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 is 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.
