PLAYERS
Randall Burden
Position: CB
Class:  Sr
School: Kentucky
HT: 6'0"
WT: 170 lbs.
40 Time: 4.62
Conference: SEC
Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 41 tackles/3 interceptions/2 pass breakups as a senior after posting junior totals of 36/1/6.

Positives: Zone cornerback who is best facing the action. Effectively diagnoses plays, stays with receivers from their breaks and shows a nice move to the ball.

Negatives: Does a lot of face guarding in man-to-man coverage. Slow to react. Average burst to the ball.

Analysis: Burden was a consistent cornerback for Kentucky, but he has poor speed and athleticism for a defensive back. He offers adequate size and could be effective in a zone system if he stands out on special teams this summer.

Projection: FA
