1. Burnham is an outstanding athlete and football player. He doesn’t play against the strongest competition in northern Michigan, but Burnham is clearly a bona fide stud and is very well conditioned as he plays a lot on both sides of the ball. Burnham has All-America potential at the next level with his instincts and natural ability as an inside linebacker, but he also can pin his ears back and get after the quarterback as a defensive end. If neither of those positions work out, then Burnham could be a solid H-back with his athleticism.
