From: St Paul's/Sandringham Dragons, Selection 53, 2005 National Draft

Number: 1 2007-2009

Debuted in the second half of 2007 and became a permanent fixture in the side during 2008. Achieved a career high of 32 disposals in Round 21 of that year and averaged 21 disposals and 8 marks for the year.

Buckley played in Round 1, 2009 but was then sidelined with an injury that stopped him from playing any more senior games that year. He made a comeback later in the year with the Casey Scorpions VFL side but was delisted at the end of the year.

Collingwood picked him up in the National Draft but despite a string of impressive performances for their VFL side Buckley was unable to break into the Magpies senior team during 2010. He played in the Magpies winning NAB Cup team in 2011 and made his debut for them in the first round of that season. He played 13 games for the season but was dropped before their finals campaign and failed to recapture his spot, suffering exactly the same fate the next year - playing 13 games but missing the finals.
