Strengths
Tall physical corner who shows a good burst and is capable of staying with receivers out of their breaks; Willing to make big hits and plays a physical brand of cornerback.
Weaknesses
Plays high and isn't consistently fluid in his hips allowing himself to get turned, or beaten outright; Might have issues in man coverage on deep routes or double moves.
Overall Analysis
Burns is good at press coverage if he has help over the top. His physical mentality suggests that he also fits into a zone scheme that will allow him to track receivers early and defend against the running game. He's not ready to start day 1, except in a few very specific systems, but he has the skills to develop into a full time starter down the road.
