2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Miles Burris, OLB, San Diego State

San Diego State linebacker Miles Burris is a versatile prospect who could potentially play inside or outside. He's more comfortable outside but with experience, has the right frame to patrol the middle.

Burris has a powerful upper body and is at his best when playing downhill at the snap. He wraps and breaks down well as a tackler. He bends well on the edge to get his pads down and will be a real asset to the Oakland Raiders who selected him in the fourth round. The Raiders were lacking in linebacker depth and while Burris won't immediately take over for Aaron Curry, Burris could see the field in pass rushing situations.

Burris doesn't display great coverage skills and is the type of player to most comfortable with his assignment in front of him. He read and reacts very well with a great violent explosion towards the ball-carrier. Displays good closing speed and takes angles well. When mixing it up in the trenches, he lacks consistent technique. Burris plays with a great tenacity that should carry him safely into a roster spot and playing rotation early in his career.
