The biggest concern with Burns is his lack of size, as he was listed at just 235 pounds. He lacks a bit of play-recognition, almost always looking for the quarterback than the ball. He has a solid first-step and the ability to get to the edge, though he can get pushed too far up the field a bit too often. But the truth is that he's strictly a pass-rusher and offers nothing in coverage, which means he's an undersized situational pass-rusher. There are flashes of a good player at times and his angles to the quarterback are something that can be worked on, but the question is whether he can add weight to be more of an every-down player. Update: He added 14 pounds for the NFL Combine and he still tested very well, surely moving up his draft stock.

Brian Burns selected No. 16 by Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers have selected defensive end Brian Burns with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Carolina Panthers have addressed their need on the edge. Brian Burns is an explosive speed rusher who quieted size concerns by weighing in 20 lbs., heavier than expected at the NFL Combine. Burns has great closing speed as evidenced by his 67 pressures in 2018, a mark that placed him third among defensive ends.
