The SEC Blog will be counting down the top 150 players in the SEC every day, concluding on August 30 at the start of the college football regular season.

 

No. 119: Trey Burton, No. 8, Running Back/Wide Receiver

2011 Stats: 37 carries for 125 yards and three touchdowns, 19 catches for 149 yards and one touchdown, completed 4-of-6 passes for 16 yards.

 

Strengths

Burton has established himself as one of the SEC's premier do-everything players. He's played quarterback, wide receiver, running back and tight end during his first two seasons in Gainesville, and has succeeded at all spots. His athleticism has been the crutch that Florida's offense has relied on when things weren't clicking over the last two seasons.

Weaknesses

His versatility has been a benefit for the Gators, but he doesn't do one thing incredibly well. That has prevented him from being a true star in the SEC. Granted, the offensive ineptitude in Gainesville the last few years haven't afforded him the opportunity to shine. 

 

2012 Prediction

From all indications, Burton will be a big part of new offensive coordinator Brent Pease's offense in a variety of ways out of a fullback/H-back position. He caught three passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in Florida's Orange and Blue Debut in April, and can provide a big mismatch on linebackers when he comes out of the backfield.
