Featured Prospects

Selected by: Minnesota Vikings
Round: 5
Pick (Overall): 8 (139)

Pick Analysis: Burton is a long, rangy corner with the potential to be an effective Cover-2 corner as a pro. He has good ball skills and awareness, and should be an effective sub-defender for the Vikings.

Burton could become a great starting corner for a team with a press-heavy scheme. Very adept at disrupting receivers releasing off the line and can flip his hips but may struggle to recover when beaten by top NFL deep threats. Does a good job reading the passer in off-man coverage and closes quickly after the catch but could do a better job of recognizing run. Has the mentality and physical tools to eventually improve in run support but takes too long to shed and is only adequate at breaking down in space.


Burton has a nice combination of height and speed. Uses his length to jam and re-route receivers at the line and shows the ability to recover. Does a nice job in off-man reacting to the football in front of him. Can rack up the PBUs and break up the jump ball.


High-cut player who isn't overly smooth and idles down in-and-out of breaks. Only shows average awareness in zone coverage. Does not possess the hands to routinely come down with interceptions. Struggles to disengage from blocks in run support. A tick slow diagnosing run. Still developing as a tackler.
