Miles Burris - LB
College: San Diego State
Mel Kiper's Scouting Report
This past season, Burris repeated as a first team all-conference honoree after leading the team in tackles (72), tackles for loss (19), sacks (8), and fumble recoveries (3).
His best games as a senior came at Michigan (10 tackles, 2 TFLs), at Air Force (8 tackles, 2.5 TFLs), vs. New Mexico (9 tackles, 2.5 TFLs, sack), at Colorado State (6 tackles, 3 TFLs, sack, fumble recovery), and against Fresno State (6 tackles, 2 sacks).
Analysis: Burris was a team captain and he led by example with off-the-charts production and tackle totals. He can come off the edge as a blitzer and attack the quarterback or he can drop into coverage and show good awareness and anticipation. He was solid, reliable, productive, and durable for San Diego State, playing a lot of football during his career. Burris was easily the team’s best defensive football player the past few years and I think this kid can fight his way into a starting environment at the pro level. *Combine Note: Didn't workout.
