Default Far From Burfict

Mike Mayock now rates LB Vontaze Burfict as undraftable. Says the tapes don't lie, he can't play.

Wow, was rated early on as a 1st round pick.

Has there ever been a player that busted before he was even drafted?

“I put his tape on with absolutely zero preconceived notions,” Mayock explained in a Thursday conference call with media. “I watched three tapes and really didn’t like him as a football player.

“I think he’s a non-draftable kid. For me, he’s a free agent.”
He's got Oakland Raiders written all over him.

Burfict literally gives up in pass coverage, and is WAY to much of a liability in today's heavy disciplined NFL.

Toss in the concussion lawsuit, severe coachability issues, and a forty barely registering in the 4.8's...

...and you got yourself just another unemployed ex-football player.

I don't think Burfict is smart enough to get away with it.

Well, at least he has his college education to fall back on.

There were reports of this potentially being the case. Didn't stop someone from drafting him in the fourth round in the OM mock draft several days ago.

McDaniels would trade a future 1st to grab him in the 4th.

Okay, I'm as against Burfict as the next guy, but...really? I mean really? Mayock, a guy who gets paid to evaluate talent and give his opinion on it, had "absolutely zero" preconceived notions about a guy who was rated as a first or second rounder as recently as this fall?

I think he should change his name to "Boz" and give it another shot.

Just by him saying that, means he had a preconceived notion.
