We traded a 4th and 5th Rounder to move up to #88. That tells me we likely had him as an earlier 3rd rounder. I still think we tried too hard to mold him into a LB. He was really a Big Safety there at Vanderbilt, where he could use his speed and athleticism keeping things in front of him Vs relying on slower instincts.The REAL problem with Burks is we should've drafted Cunningham
I always saw him as a Safety anyway and it showed up on ST coverage units, where he was pretty good coming downhill from afar. Burks still outdid Amari Rodgers (#85 overall) who was drafted similar area, whereas Amari was a detriment on ST. When you’re top 100 and you can’t even excel at ST that’s not good.
Are you talking about Zach
Cunningham from Vanderbilt? If so. Good LB, although He was a year earlier and Round sooner. He’s expected to be a good iLB at #57 overall
