why I want to get burnett
 
Quote:

After being elected team captain for a second consecutive season, Kevin Burnett has proven to be a true leader both on and off the field. Burnett would have been in the NFL this year, but he took a medical redshirt after tearing his ACL in the first game of the 2002 season. He turned in a solid effort in 2003, finishing with 90 total tackles on the season. He is a converted safety who has one of the best combinations of size, speed and instincts in the draft. His speed gives him the ability to make tackles sideline to sideline or cover a running back coming out of the backfield. He does a good job of taking on and shedding blocks of opposing offensive linemen and is an explosive tackler. Burnett is an excellent athlete who still hasn't realized his full potential. If he puts it all together, he should be a very special player at the next level.

Sounds good to me.

I agree on Burnett. IMO, he will be just as good a pro as DJ. And the thing I like most about him is that he excels at coverage so he wouldnt be just a fast OLB like Hodge who cant turn his hips for anything.

Some will argue he isn\'t worth the 16th pick, but I wouldn\'t be disappointed if we picked him.
Some say we should trade down and still get him. The problem with that is everyone wants to trade down. I doubt the 16th pick will warrant much in a trade down, if you can find any takers.

I\'ve read some teams (like Miami) will simply pass a few picks if they can\'t get any good offers. They\'ll still get the guy they want but will end up paying #7 money to the same player instead of #2 money.
Thats kinda crazy but it is an interesting paradygm shift.

I\'ve been reading that stuff, too. Makes me wonder if the agents are gonna revolt...

Bet we\'ll see our share of difficult signings over the summer anyway.

I think Burnett could be had later in the first but I agree that we arent in a position to trade down to get him. I just worry that he wont fall to us in the second. If we could get Burnett or Crowder with the second, then I would be very very happy.
