Burnett Runs Hard at NFL Combine
Burnett's former college teammate, Denver Broncos Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall spoke highly of Joe when he was discussed at the Pro Bowl.
"Joe Burnett is a great player," Marshall said. "He will surprise some people on the next level."
Marshall also told NFL Network Draft Analyst Mike Mayock that Burnett was a "sleeper," and he should watch his film. After watching the film, Mayock had this to say—
"Joe Burnett is a very good player."
Those who watched Burnett play know that he's much better than the workout numbers will show, as he has a tendency to make big plays when his team needs them. Burnett is said to be a solid fit for a cover two system, as he has great ball skills and is compared to former UCF, current Pro Bowler Asante Samuel.
With teams such as the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns showing special interest in Burnett, his wait on draft weekend may be shorter than many believe.
