PFT Mock: It's Burns aAt #9

Recommended Posts

PFT’s 2019 mock draft

Posted by Mike Florio on April 24, 2019, 1:17 PM EDT
 

9. Bills: Brian Burns, EDGE, FSU.

Here’s a move that could be followed by a trade of Jerry Hughes and his $6.35 million salary to a team that fails to get a pass rusher it covets in round one.

Why are these people trying to trade away Hughes?  

 

We need a pass rusher opposite him, not replacing him.  Smh....

I don't mind the pick, but the trade sounds awful to me. We need more pressure, and getting rid of Hughes won't accomplish this.

This is now my mock too. I honestly think if they pick at #9 it's Burns.

...agree ....cleaned up his dumb penalties....is a proven commodity and has upped his game.....FWIW, I'd say a nice two year extension is a win-win.....loathe this addition by subtraction crap and the "stat rats only" pundits..........

There's been some sort of weird obsession with trading Hughes since Beane arrived. It makes absolutely no sense.

The thought of trading Jerry is fail unless we’re tanking on purpose

Draft a 235lb edge rusher that you don't know will pan out and trade one of the better ones in the league? No

Hughes must be one of the most overrated Bills of all time. 

Also no to Burns, would rather have Sweat with medical issues.

I am VERY leery of Burns.  If Bills played a 3-4 then, maybe, OK, but he has not shown that he can play at anything close to the size of a 4-3 DE.  If they want to play him at OLB, that might be OK, too.

 

For sure, I am not a qualified NFL talent evaluator, but to me he is a high risk pick.  I know that he weighed in at the combine at almost 250, but that is small by any standard for a 4-3 end, especially on a team that already has trouble stopping the run.  I question whether he could even maintain 250 lbs during a season, even if he can is that enough and how will his speed only rush hold up against NFL OTs who will overpower him?

I'd be surprised because he isn't a prototype. Joe Marino from the locked on Bills podcast says he is the best pass rusher in the class. But his size doesn't seem to fit with what the Bills usually look for.

I agree.

 

And I’m good with it.

Burns at 9 would feel like us the years we took Maybin/Whitner.  If we traded down or traded back into the 1st to grab Burns in the late teens I'd think it was a good move though.  Just not at 9 please

I’m not a fan of Burns at 9... I think there is some risk of him not making the grade at NFL level..
