Ourlads' Analysis:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ARTIE BURNS: Miami, 5117 193 4.45. Junior entry from Miami, FL. Two-year starter. Second-team All- ACC. Physical corner with good change of direction and a closing burst. At his best in press coverage. Does a good job being patient with a receiver’s moves and not biting on movement away from his leverage. Maintains position on receiver with good focus. Mirrors cuts well and uses his hands to jam and ride receiver out. Can be physical in press. Not as good in off-man and zone as he will lose leverage on a receiver occasionally. Smooth and fluid in his pedal, with very good turn and run transition. Changes speeds in pedal well and does a good job maintaining cushion and staying on top of a receiver. Rare speed and ability to close in coverage. Sudden plant and drive. Reacts well on the throw with good ball skills. Played inside over a tight end at times. Tends to run around a block and lunge at tackles. Struggles with a wide receiver stalk block, and while he gets separation he struggles to shed and can get ridden out too easily. Has the speed, size, and athletic ability you look for to play at the next level. His cover skills make him a quality prospect. 2015 stats: 36 T, 6 INT, 5 PBU. BTR:left 4.68, right 5.00. OSR:22/ 34. First/second round. (A-33 1/4, H-9 1/2, VJ-31.5, SS-DNP).
