Brian Burns 2019 NFL Draft Profile

College: Florida State

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 249

CPGM Headley’s Prospect Notes

Strengths

  • Can beat you in a multitude of ways, whether it’s in a 2 point or 3 point stance
  • Can drop back into coverage showing natural awareness
  • Best pass rush move is his swim move
  • Long arms/Length are helpful in getting to the quarterback
  • Has an array of pass rushing techniques and moves
  • Has no problem winning with bend around the edge
  • High potential player that wins with his length (second and third step), a good understanding of containment and being in the right spot
  • Best college tape is when he’s wider than the tackles with his hand in the ground but a move to OLB in a 3-4 shouldn’t be a problem.

Weaknesses

  • Want to see more dog out of him
  • Lacking in functional strength which allows him to get washed out of plays at times
  • At times rushes up the field with no secondary move so quarterbacks can easily step up (want to see him add a bull rush).
CPGM Drew’s Prospect Notes

Strengths

  • Extremely explosive/fast off the snap specifically in a 3 or 4 point stance
  • High Motor
  • Willing to run down field to chase a play; always has his eyes on the ball on his way to the backfield
  • Effective in stunts and blitzes
  • Has great lateral movement, appears to have long arms and uses them well
  • I’m not sure he always had a plan on each play in ’17 makes me wonder how many tools are in his tool box; fast forward to ’18 he cleaned it up, grew in terms of technique
  • Can close in a hurry when he has his targets in his sites
  • Smart player who understands his role and what he is responsible for within the scheme
  • Doesn’t ad-lib
  • He has an extra gear (third step) when tackle attempts to recover in pass pro set
  • Plenty of bend and flexibility
  • Coffees for closer, get that man his coffee! He knows how to finish.

Weaknesses

  • A definite issue is Burn’s size and it shows when he makes a move to go inside and there is no real push but he isn’t getting mauled either so I imagine adding size would alleviate that
  • Double teams and chips did slow him down.
