Burfict had 69 total tackles, 40 solo tackles, five sacks and one interception for the Sun Devils in 2011 but it's his talent and physical ability that has NFL scouts drooling.
Burfict is a work in progress and needs more game experience and coaching, but he is a physical specimen who can play sideline-to-sideline and blow plays up like no other linebacker in the country.
Since then, Burfict hasn't dont much to dissuade that kind of expectation. The stud middle linebacker for the Sun Devils is slotted at no. 31 to the Baltimore Ravens in the current SBNation mock draft. In Baltimore, he might have the perfect mentor:
Ray Lewis has a few more years left to give. Still, Lewis' injury this year has to be of some concern to the Ravens; after all, he is 36. Lewis is the perfect mentor for a tough young player like Burfict that needs to iron out his mental game.
Burfict is currently the No. 20 prospect on Mocking The Draft's overall rankings.
