2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Selects Vontaze Burfict (Arizona State) at No. 6
As Arizona State football continues to gain hype, we are all hearing more and more about a linebacker named Vontaze Burfict. Let me assure you, this guy is the real deal.
His head coach, Dennis Erickson, has compared him to Ray Lewis, and it might be accurate.
Burfict has the speed of a running back, the power of an offensive lineman and is one of the most feared hitters in the nation. He makes an impact as soon as he steps on the field.
The Browns have been searching for a linebacker that can lead their defense, and they may have their man in Burfict.
Last season he recorded 89 tackles and forced two fumbles while leading the best run defensive in the Pac 10.
I feel Vontaze is one of the more talented players in the draft. The only knock on him has been his discipline and work ethic. However, he has changed that negative image this offseason and become a leader and is now one of the hardest working guys on the team.
