From McGinn

12. OREN BURKS, Vanderbilt (6-3, 232, 4.62, 4): Started 19 games at free safety in 2014-’15 before shifting to ILB in a 3-4 defense the past two years. “Smart as a whip,” said one scout. “There’s no doubt this guy will play. What a great kid. This is the type of kid you search for.” Finished with 237 tackles (15 1/2 for loss), 4 ½ sacks, five interceptions and 26 passes defensed. Tied for the positional lead in the vertical jump (39 ½) and led the broad jump (10-10). “Good instincts against the run,” a second scout said. “Can roam, match up and blitz on third down. Tough.” Wonderlic of 24. From  Fairfax Station, Va.

This is the first one that kinda bummed me out this year.  Especially since I assume we gave up 101 to move up for him.

I'm gonna have to dig up something to watch on this guy. Never even heard his name before.

This is a head scratcher.  Not sure this improves our defense even slightly.  I guess pass rush isn't all that important anymore.
