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 scores on fumble recovery

Brian Burns finished Sunday’s 34-27 win over Jacksonville with three total tackles (14), a sack (3.5), a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Burns is heating up in Carolina and owners in dynasty leagues should take notice. He is currently second on the team in sacks with 3.5 through Week 5. He isn’t worth starting on a regular basis, but if a bench spot is open Burns is worth adding.
