Buckner will take fewer snaps this season under new defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports. "When you look at a guy like Buckner last year having played almost 1,000 snaps -- in my mind, that's criminal," Saleh said. "Ideally, all of them are working about 500, 600 snaps and trying to utilize everything they've got every snap that they're on the football field."

2016

Rookie 3-4 ends normally don't make IDP noise, but Buckner might be a different breed. A rare athlete at 6-foot-7, 291 pounds with incredible conditioning, Buckner is already a polished product and shouldn't need the acclimation time most DEs would require. He was exceptionally productive at Oregon the last two years, exceeding 80 tackles in both seasons while totaling 30 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks in just 28 games. He's a boom-or-bust IDP consideration with a low floor, but Buckner might do a good Calais Campbell impression surprisingly early in his career.
