  • Burfict Busting Out of the Draft Entirely

    At Arizona State, the downward spiral continues for linebacker Vontaze Burfict. The one-time highly rated linebacker, who struggled through a disappointing 2011 campaign then ran poorly at the combine, looked no better today. Scouts thought Burfict looked poorly conditioned and out-of-place in drills. He was not smooth changing direction, dropped passes in drills and generally looked like a free agent compared to the first-round pick most predicted just six months ago. Several scouts said they felt bad for Burfict, who'll have another chance to redeem himself on March 30.

    Wow. This guy will draw a lot of interest in FA then.

      If hes there in the 5th round.... you grab him.

      Brandon Spikes ran a really poor 40, and he is turning out to be a decent NFL Linebacker.
      "Hey, let me buy you a pack of gum. I'll show you how to chew it."

      2014 Draft:
      Round 1 - Eric Ebron, TE - North Carolina
      Round 2 - David Yankey, OG - Stanford
      Round 3 - Allen Robinson, WR - Penn State
      Round 4 - Anthony Johnson, DT - LSU
      Round 5 - Rashaad Reynolds, CB - Oregon State
      Round 6 - Andrew Jackson, ILB - W. Kentucky
      Round 7 - ** Traded for Jon Beason **

        Brandon Spikes was known to be a heady linebacker tough, Burict the complete opposite

          Spikes also produced big vs big time competition. You could doubt his athleticism based on the combine but you could never doubt his production, or his leadership.

          Burfict hasnt produced, has proven less the athlete, and by all teammates and coaches account was a detriment to his team.

          Many of the regulars on the draft forums(Slip, NYC, Redye, a few others and I) all said long before the combine that this kid has huge red flags. But, too many people think the cooler the youtube video the better the player.

            Its too bad pointing at the QB isn't a drill at the combine. Then Burfict wouldn't be disrespected like this!

                I would not speculate too much. This kid is a gamer. He may be bombing all off this work out stuff to be drafted by a better team!!! He will not get past the first round.

                    Was he bombing his play on the field all year for the same reason?

                    Completely take out all the interviews and workouts, just going purely off how he played in college, hes probably somewhere around a 3rd-5th round prospect.

                        [/quote]He'll get drafted, but his story is a damn shame. I'll take a stab and say he goes in the 3-5 range. Maybe 4-6 range.

                          I actually agree with jaxnygmen. Burfict has power, speed, and instincts good enough for the next level.

                          Burfict will be a top 10 selection...

At one point in time, he was a 1st round lock but damn things have spiraled out of control for this guy. I remember him and the hype of being the best LB in the nation as a HS recruit and he deserved the credit at the time. Wanted to go to USC, but academics held him back & he chose Arizona St. He may be the most physically gifted LB in this years class but there's too many red flags w/ this guy.
