Rex Burkhead: Video Highlights for Former Nebraska RB

Rex Burkhead (No. 22) is projected, at best, as a serviceable NFL running back.

The reviews of Rex Burkhead aren't sensational. 

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller ranks him as the 18th-best at his position (200th overall) and CBS Sports ranks him as the 22nd-best running back (284th overall). CBS projects him as either a seventh-round pick or undrafted altogether.

Burkhead has good size (5'11" and 210 pounds), but isn't a blazer (4.65 40-yard dash). He averaged 6.9 yards per carry last season and 84.4 yards per game. He also benched 225 pounds 21 times and posted a 39" vertical leap as well as a 10'05" broad jump.

While he doesn't project as a stud, he could be a serviceable NFL back. Many believe his on-field performance over four years at Nebraska demonstrates that more than his 40-yard time suggests.

Here's a look at some highlights of his abilities.
