2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAMES BURGESS: Louisville, 6002 236 4.61. Three-year starter from Homestead, FL. Third team All-ACC. An undersized athletic linebacker who makes a lot of big plays. Outstanding in coverage and an effective blitzer. He can help a team as a pass situation linebacker and special teams’ player. Takes a good angle to the ball and has tackling skills. Has good zone awareness. Sudden in his reaction to the throw. He is solid in man coverage using good technique and the ability to mirror the receivers’ cuts. A little hesitant with initial read and can get caught in the wash. Late in his reactions against the run at times. His tendency to go back door on blocks gets him out of position. East-West Shrine notes: A quick reacting inside linebacker who is very good in space and is an explosive tackler. Big strong hands to control and ward off blockers. An effective blitzer with a sudden burst to the quarterback. A three down player who is good in coverage. Takes good zone drops and can play the deep seams. Pro day numbers: 32.5/VJ, 10-1/BJ, 7.06/3 cone. 2015 stats: 92 T, 9 TFL, 4 PBU, 1 QBH, 1 INT. Not invited to Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A-30 3/4, H-10 1/8, BP-21, SS-4.47).
