Burfict's media session at the Scouting Combine was less-than-impressive, and his team interviews in Indy were regarded as disastrous. Add to that a pair of so-so Pro Days, and Burfict could slide all the way out of the draft.
Teams inclined to take a late-round flier on Burfict have plenty of reasons to look elsewhere. His high-school coach, Matt Logan, said of Burfict, "I am a little bit worried. I just don't know if he's listening to anybody right now." Arizona State defensive coordinator Craig Bray has said any praise for Burfict's skills is "all hype."
