    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.

    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!

    The difference is that Brandon Spikes lacked athleticism this kid doesn't he could well have ran a 4.5 40 I'd say if he put in the work some of the other guys put in.

    I think this guy showed up at the combine without doing any work what so ever since the season ended.

    To me that is a much bigger red flag than spikes' lack of speed.

    After saying all that you never know the guy could turn out to be a very good player if he gets to work.

    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.
