Stephen Burton

School: West Texas A&M
Position: WR
Bio: Junior college transfer who started the past two seasons. Senior receiving totals included 70/1021/11, when he also averaged 23.1 yards on 10 kick returns. Junior numbers were 62/888/2 receiving.
Positive: Nice-sized underneath receiver with reliable hands. Has good quickness, sells routes, and is sharp into breaks, getting separation from defenders. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw and displays strong hands as well as eye/hand coordination. Looks the pass in, easily makes the reception in stride,and quickly transitions from making the catch to running after the reception. Shows toughness and a willingness to go over the middle and make the difficult reception in a crowd. Finds the open seam in the defense and shows some elusiveness running after the catch.
Negative: Does an adequate job blocking but really does not show a killer mentality for a big receiver. Unnecessarily lets the ball get inside him at times. Leaves his feet for no reason to make the reception. Lacks a burst and deep speed. Benefited from a four-receiver passing offense at West Texas A&M.
Analysis: Burton is a solid prospect with enough skill to make it as a fourth receiver in either a West Coast offense or a system that asks him to run underneath routes.
