Things are just getting worse and worse for the Sun Devils junior middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
A former top five projected pick, Burfict has perhaps fallen out of the first round at this point in time.
He posted a pretty iffy 40 time, 5.09 seconds, which was not as quick as many had thought for the freakishly athletic playmaker.
The thing that perhaps hurt him most at the combine was his mouth, as he was quoted talking trash about the ASU coaching staff.
According to Bruce Feldman of CBS:
“I played average,” Burfict explained to reporters in Indy. “I could've played better. That's what hurt me at times. The coaches kind of messed me up. I didn't know if I would start a game or be benched. It hurt me, but I tried to fight through it.”
Not exactly what coaches want to see, but considering the potential that Burfict has, some team may decide to roll the dice late in the first or early in the second.
