BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 27/4.5/1 in eleven games after
missing time with a leg injury. Junior numbers included 59/13/9.5 with two interceptions.
POSITIVES: Fluid, hard-working linebacker who flies around the football. Quick changing direction, plays faster than his 40 time, and
shows ability in space. Smooth moving in reverse. Covers a lot of area on the field and effectively uses his hands to protect
himself. Breaks down well and displays a burst of speed in every direction.
NEGATIVES: Slow shedding blocks or smothered at the point by opponents. Does not make enough plays on the field, and tends to do a lot
of running around. Shows hesitation to his game and is not decisive.
ANALYSIS: Burns has displayed flashes of ability, yet never really took his game to another level. He possesses the underlying athleticism
to compete for a job at the next level should he pull it together.
