Vontaze Burfict-All American (via thereaper)Back on Topic, Vontaze is a BEAST !!! Entering his junior season, Burfict was consensually regarded as one of the best linebackers available in the 2012 NFL Draft, projected to go as high as the No. 5 pick. Problems on and off the field at Arizona State, however, caused his draft stock to plummet. In October 2011, Sports Illustrated′s Tony Pauline still ranked him as the No. 20 prospect on his midseason draft board, but noted that he has been "a loose cannon on and off the field, which has raised red flags."Burfict entered the NFL Combine rated as the No. 3 inside linebacker, behind Luke Kuechly and Dont'a Hightower, but his "disappointing" performance—he ran a 5.09 sec in the 40-yard dash, slowest among linebackers—caused some analysts to project him as a third day (Rd. 4-7) draft pick.NFL scouts also faulted him for his interview process, in which he blamed the ASU coaching staff for his mediocre junior season. At the ASU pro day on March 16, Burfict had an "average" performance by his own estimation. According to SI's Tony Pauline, Burfict "looked poorly conditioned and out-of-place in drills".
