I watched some Buchner tape and I think he has a really high ceiling. His running ability is something we haven’t had since Wimbush. 
 

However, for as much flack as Book and Coan got, they were great at taking care of the ball. This is where Buchner scares me… he had some bad turnovers in limited action. Hoping this was due to his inexperience.
