2012 NFL Combine: Vontaze Burfict Needs To Impress

Vontaze Burfict of the Arizona St. Sun Devils is one of those guys that you have no idea about where he'll end up in the 2012 NFL Draft. Burfict is the linebacker who could be an all-world leader in the NFL, or could end up busting out if you draft him high, or he might just make it and have a solid if unremarkable career. He could be picked the first day. He could end up in the third or fourth round. He might even not get drafted at all if he puts up an unimpressive performance at the Combine.

No one really knows how he'll end up performing at the 2012 Scouting Combine. Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated reports that a lot is on the line for Burfict at this draft.

There's not much that can be written about Burfict that hasn't been already said. He needs to show he's the complete package both on the field during workouts as well as in the interview room for any chance of restoring his draft stock.
