HT: 6'4"
WT: 300 lbs.
40 Time: 5.26
Conference: SEC
Biography: Former defensive end who moved to the offensive line as a junior and started the next two seasons.

Positives: Adequately sized college tackle who projects to guard in the NFL. Quickly sets up off the snap, keeps his feet moving and immediately gets his hands into opponents. Makes good use of angles, stays square and seals defenders from the action. Fluid moving on his feet and works blocks until the whistle blows. Easily controls defenders once engaged at the point of attack.

Negatives: Not a natural knee-bender and gets tall in his blocking. Lacks balance and struggles covering a large area.

Analysis: Since moving to the offensive line as a junior, Burden has shown continual improvement and flashed next-level ability. He offers good size and growth potential and is a developmental prospect who should be stashed on a practice squad.

Projection: FA
