Name: Josh Buhl School
Kansas State Year
Three year starter who posted 184/12/1 as a senior, setting the KSU single season record for tackles. Junior totals included 135/10/1 after a sophomore campaign of 68/4/1.
Explosive yet undersized collegiate linebacker that projects to safety at the next level. Quick to diagnose the action, immediately picks up cover assignments and makes plays sideline-to-sideline. Wedges through blocks to get to the action and displays a burst of closing speed. Solid in pass coverage and gets depth on drops. Quickly changes direction in pursuit of the ball carrier. Solid tackling techniques.
Small and taken out by blocks. Lacks body control, over-pursues the action and not efficient.
One of KSU's most productive defenders the past three seasons, Buhl exploits his quickness and explosion to get the job done. Possesses both the cover skills and tenacity to make a move to strong safety in the NFL.
