Stephen Burton Scouting Report
Stephen Burton
Stephen Burton - West Texas A&M; (HT: 6-1⅜ - WT: 221)
Combine 40: 4.53 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 32 of 60

Positives: Great size and speed combination... Good leaper with great body control, adjusts well to the ball... Good potential as a possession receiver... Throws his body around, makes plays in the middle of the field... Size and frame make him a more than capable run blocker... Runs well after the catch, runs through tacklers... Has experience returning kicks... Has a high ceiling, a good developmental prospect... Has positive momentum heading into the draft after a good showing at the combine.

Negatives: Measured in at the combine over two inches smaller than his listed height of 6-4... Had to spend two years playing at the junior college level before transferring... Not a great student, struggled with grades in college... Below-average route runner... Bit of a slow-twitch athlete, has good long speed but isn't great off the snap and has just average lateral quickness... Inconsistent hands, drops some catchable balls but will make the acrobatic plays... Struggles to get separation in man coverage.
