BIO: Posted 34/8/2 as a senior after 35/5/1 the previous season. Used in a three-man rotation up front. Bench presses more than 400 pounds and squats in excess of 600 pounds.
POSITIVES: Big, strong defender who must take his game to the next level. Explodes off the snap with a quick first step. Possesses a good arm-over move and plays with leverage, keeping his pads low to the ground. Closes on the play with a burst of speed. Adequate skills moving laterally. Chases hard to get involved in the action.
NEGATIVES: Lacks balance and easily knocked to the ground by opponents. Slow locating the ball. Does not play to his weight room numbers and easily controlled at the point by ordinary opponents.
ANALYSIS: A defender who occasionally stands out on film, Burt possesses the size, strength and athletic ability to play at the next level. Even with that he has been marginally productive and never seemingly took his game to the next level. A project in the works and must improve all facets of his game, yet worth consideration in the late rounds.
