2018 Vanderbilt Pro Day


“At Pro Day, Burks only did positional drills and the 60-yard shuttle, which he did not do at the combine. His 11.12-second time in the shuttle would have led all linebackers at the combine.

Vanderbilt Football Career

"A 247Sports Composite three-star recruit out of Lorton, Virginia, Burks started his career as a safety, making seven starts as a redshirt freshman and totaling 37 tackles and seven passes defensed while returning a fumble for a touchdown. He started every game as a sophomore, recording 52 total tackles (two for loss) with five passes defensed and three interceptions, returning one of his two picks against Kentucky for a TD. Burks moved to a linebacker/safety hybrid position as a junior and also made a start at inside linebacker, and he tallied 59 total tackles (6.5 for loss) with 3.5 sacks and an interception he returned for 59 yards.

Burks was shifted to purely an inside linebacker as a senior, where he totaled a career-high 80 tackles (seven for loss) with one sack and one interception. His totals included a 15-tackle explosion against Florida and a 12-tackle performance against Kentucky in which he had a sack and a fumble recovery." - R.J. White, CBS Sports
