Burns was a player I "pounded the table" for leading up to the start of the 2020 season. He produced 7.5 sacks in his rookie season on limited snaps so there was definitely room for optimism heading into 2020; it was just a matter if the team would give him the snap volume needed to be a DL2 and beyond producer. Well, they did as he logged over 750 snaps which translated to a 34/28/8 line . He still hasn't hit his ceiling yet heading into his third season and can easily reach double digit sacks, especially if the team doesn't rely on him in pass coverage as much as they did a year ago.
