Small school LB to watch

Post  Big_Pete on Mon Apr 23, 2012 5:41 pm

Here is an interesting small school LB to watch out for.

LB Miles Burris, San Diego State
6-1⅝
246
4.67 40 time
31 x 225 reps
10'0" broad jump
37.5" vertical jump
4.20 short shuttle
6.81 3 cone

He has very good physical tools, plus has been productive at college.
50 games, 235 tackles, 47.0 TFL, 19.0 sacks

Burris is physical, instinctive, tackles well and exceptional in shedding blocks. He was used as an attacking OLB, but I think he could move to MLB in a 4-3. He will need development, but he has excellent tools.

This is exactly the kind of range that Reese prefers to draft LBs. I wouldn't be surprsed if Miles Burris isn't on Reese's radar for day 3.
He seems to be the kind of player

In his highlights I don't see anything that jumps out and says future ILB. He's fast but doesn't appear to have much size to take on bigger nfl type lineman.

I could see him playing a big part on special teams in the later rounds or if he goes undrafted. He has that type of speed to get down the field quick, and has great hustle chasing down plays.

^^ My thoughts exactly. He didn't seem to have those LB instincts.
