Bunting, a fourth-year junior, played in 35 games over the last three seasons for the Chippewas. He made 104 total tackles in that span, 3.5 of which went for a loss, and he also intercepted nine passes. He broke up 15 passes over the course of his career, making five deflections in each of his three seasons. He forced four fumbles in his career.
Bunting had a strong showing at the Scouting Combine, running his 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds, good for ninth among all defensive backs. His 41.5” vertical jump was the third-best total in his position group. At 6’0” and 195 pounds, Bunting has very good size for the NFL. Lance Zierlein compared the MAC-school corner to Levi Wallace, whom the Bills signed as an undrafted free agent last spring. Zierlein projects Bunting as a second- or third-round pick this year.
If Bunting really is similar to Wallace, then we know he would certainly fit the defensive scheme Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier employ. Adding another talented corner to a group that already consists of Wallace, Taron Johnson, Kevin Johnson, E.J. Gaines, and Tre’Davious White would give Buffalo some serious depth at an important position.
