Burton: "No, it's not that much of a difference. The learning curve is different, but when you attack like Wesley (Woodyard) and Andre Woodson or Steve Johnson or Jacob Tamme, guys that played at Kentucky with me, I think it is not as hard. You just have to learn the system, go out and compete and make plays and be consistent every day. If you do that, you are fine."

Question: What did you learn last year that will help you this year?

Burton: "I learned how to be patient and let the game come to me. I was so used to Andre giving me the ball off the bat, being able to catch the ball, make some moves and get myself into a rhythm. I might not see a pass now until the second quarter. That means I have to take advantage of every opportunity and be smarter as a receiver and make plays when you can. That is what I learned."

Question: What was life like out on your own in a different city?

Burton: "Honestly, it was just like college without the classes in a new state. Football is football for 12 hours a day. If you put in extra time, it is 13 or 14 hours a day and guys that want to be the best definitely put in the extra time. I am looking to be the best, so I am no different than those guys."
