Alfie's Player Ranking 62 out of 100
Projected Round: 2-3

Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 62nd ranked player, Utah cornerback Brandon Burton.

Height: 6-1

Weight: 185lbs

PROS: Good height for an NFL corner. Good speed with long arms and a frame to add some mass. Good backpedal with quick feet. Wraps up well when tackling. Turns well when playing bump and run, but better in a zone scheme. Will contribute right away on special teams.

CONS: Think for his height and will get out muscled. Gets blocked out of plays by receivers. Will miss tackles in the open field and runs him self out of running plays often. Production rather average as a two year starter.
