Carolina Panthers Select Florida State OLB Brian Burns #16 Overall 1

Carolina has selected OLB Brian Burns from Florida State at 16th overall. Burns has a blend of pass rushing ability, bend, and quickness (4.53 40-yard dash). He is able to get quickly into the backfield and causes serious problems for offensive tackles with quick-twitching, power, and speed.

With notable QBs such as Drew Brees and Matt Ryan in the NFC South, it’s always a great idea to put pressure on the opposing quarterback.

Burns’ explosiveness showed when he registered 10 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss this past season in Tallahassee.
