Kevin Burnett School: Tennessee
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 239 40: 4.61 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter and All-Conference
selection who posted 120/6/1 as a senior. Team
captain the past two years.
defender who forces the action. Fast moving
laterally, quick closing on the play and makes
his presence felt. Gets depth on pass drops
displaying outstanding range and collapses well
from the outside defending the run. Breaks down
well, plays with balance and rarely off his feet.
Disciplined, does not bite the play action and
takes good angles to ball carriers. Occasionally
placed over the slot receiver and does an admirable
job. Defeats blocks and gets through the
trash making the tackle.
Negatives: Previous injuries
include reconstructive surgery on his left knee
in October of 2002. Does not always remain
focused and mentally hesitant.
Analysis: A tenacious,
sideline-to-sideline defender, Burnett is a
naturally gifted athlete with improved instincts.
Lacks the great size, yet has shown consistent
improvement in all areas of his game and could
be the next productive NFL linebacker to come
from the Tennessee program.
