Overview:

Burns has great speed, he is a dynamic return man, he is a solid tackler, has a non stop motor, is good in coverage, and is a hard hitter. However he is undersized, he tends to get manhandled at times by receivers, does not always wrap up on tackle attempts, and he did not put at the kind of numbers at Kansas State that other cornerbacks did elsewhere. With that said, I expect Burns to be a early day 3 pick.
