Few players in college football have become more polarizing than Arizona State's Vontaze Burfict. Known for his brash style of play on the field and even harsher personality, Burfict, who was once a projected first-round pick, finds himself likely going as late as the fifth or sixth round.
Despite his bad combine performance and discipline issues, Burfict's talent and potential is through the roof. No matter what a player has done in the past, a team will always be willing to give a guy a chance if the talent is there.
If the Bears find themselves in a situation in which Burfict is still on that board when picking late, his upside may outweigh the negativity that seems to follow him.
Not the best in pass defense, Burfict thrives in stopping the run and can lay a punishing hit on the opposing ball carrier. Burfict would likely find himself as Brian Urlacher's backup and a contributor on special teams if the Bears were to take a chance on him.
He possesses all the necessary skills to be an above-average middle linebacker in the NFL if he can learn to control his bad behavior.
