2011 Denver Broncos Draft Cameos: Kendric Burney

Cornerback - Kendric Burney, North Carolina

Height:  5'9"
Weight:  186
40yd:  4.75

Interest Level:

Private Workout:  No
Private Visit to Team Facility:  No
Attended Proday:  Yes
Other: -

Quick Take:

good blue collar corner with quick burst and good reaction time.  Player who loves the game and dedicates himself to improving, he has nickle type turn and run flexibility, able to open his hips  to either side fluidly.  Plays well up in press coverage, and would transition best if used sparingly and aggressively.  Played well at the senior bowl and was noted for his competitiveness.  Timed slower than he plays.

Where He Goes in the Draft:

Bottom of 4th round

What is Denver's Interest In Him?


He will require a trade up to get into the 4th or top of the fifth at the latest, but he would fit well into the current defensive backfield, as a competitor willing to work and earn a spot at best as the #2 nickle.

[Note:  All players in the table are ranked by overall grade within their round grouping, however, the round groupings are based on where this player will likely be drafted based on where teams are currently selecting in the draft.  Therefore a player is ranked within a group by his level of ability, but players in nearby groupings may have higher or lower actual grades, despite being in a different group.  Confusing enough for you? --Styg]
