If you draft a defensive player with the 16th overall pick in the NFL draft, you better hope he is a good one. The Carolina Panthers took a gamble on Brian Burns, and so far it has paid off.
The defensive and has been a monster for this team. Take Sunday for instance. He recorded one sack against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he also returned a fumble for a touchdown. It was a huge day for a player who is beginning to find his stride. It is encouraging that the rookie is finding ways to make an impact.
