FSU EDGE Brian Burns Contextualization: College Career Key Defensive Plays

Florida State underclassman edge-rusher Brian Burns is a player quite a few people have be discussing this offseason as he’s expected to be a first-round selection this year. Burns has even been speculated by more than just a few people to be a possible first-round target of the Pittsburgh Steelers should he still be on the board at No. 20 overall. With our draft profile of Burns already on the site, a few readers are wanting to see more about the plays he made during his college career at Florida State

In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize the defensive plays made by Burns during his college career and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, a hurry, a forced fumble, or a fumble recovery.

Burns registered 24 total sacks in the 38 games that he played in at FSU dating back to 2016 and 39.5 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage. He also registered 7 total pass breakups to go along with 7 total forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, 14 hurries and 3 blocked punts in those three seasons. I was able to track down all but one of those 72 plays that Burns made and they are contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.
