The Panthers took the lanky, athletic freak of a pass rusher Brian Burns with the 16th pick in the NFL Draft, betting on his upside and potential after a stellar career at Florida State. Still just 21 years of age, Burns is a physical phenom with a variety of pass rushing moves, including a wicked inside spin that has left many an offensive tackle grabbing at air. But that was in college; in the pros, Burns faces questions over run defense, something he has vowed to work hard on. Burns' projection figures to be a situational rusher at first, steadily transitioning into a full-time role by the end of the season. (May 12)
