Conference: Atlantic Coast
40 Time: 5.13
Biography: Junior college transfer who totaled 26/2/2 as a senior, when he also intercepted a pass.
Positives: Undersized interior lineman who plays with great quickness. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents, and fires off the snap with a nice first step. Uses his hands well, relatively nimble and fluid moving in all directions of the field. Fights hard to get off blocks and keeps his feet moving up the field. Solid strength for his size.
Negatives: Small and handled at the point by a single blocker. Marginally productive.
Analysis: Burgess is a hard-working lineman who did well his only season starting on the IA level. The ability to play with leverage and move in every direction of the field gives him a chance as a three-technique lineman.
