5. Terrell Burgess, Utah

Size: 5-11, 202

The Good: All of a sudden, the light turned on and he became one of the best safeties in college football with 81 tackles with a pick, five broken up passes and 7.5 tackles for loss as a senior.

A fantastic athlete, he’s a rocked-up defender with mid-4.4 speed and explosiveness out of his cuts. He looks the part, played the part last year, and he still has a world of upside to his game. Just getting started, he’s a worker bee who’ll live in a film room and do everything possible to get on the field.

The Not-So-Good: It took a little while to get going. In a good way, he’s got a whole lot of tread on the tires, but it would be nice if he came into the league with a bit more experience after being just a guy in his first three seasons. with the Utes. While he’ll make tackles, he’s not the most brutally physical hitter – he’s not an intimidating force.

NFL Draft College Perspective Thought: There’s a boom-or-bust aspect to him. He’s got all the tools to go along with the character and effort coaches are going to love, but he’s a risk. It was a very good one year, but with just one career interception and 17 games of starting experience, he’s hardly a sure thing.
