BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior-year numbers included 97 tackles after 60 tackles and four interceptions as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, straight-line defender who's at his best facing the action. Plays with a good degree of quickness, quickly closes on the ball, and likes to mix it up. Redirects to the ball-carrier, plays heads-up football, and constantly around the action.
NEGATIVES: Not fluid pedaling in reverse. Lacks top lateral range. Gathers into tackles.
ANALYSIS: Burns has been a productive college defensive back, yet he offers limited size/speed numbers for the next level. He could find a place as a dime back in a zone system, yet he must produce on special teams.
