Sounds like some NFL scouts dont think the same.
After speaking to NFL scouts and assistant coaches at the Combine, CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman suggests Arizona State ILB Vontaze Burfict is in for a draft-day plunge."I'm not sure any player here sparked a worse reaction than Vontaze Burfict," writes Feldman.
"I wouldn't touch him," one scout said. "... The guy is completely out of control. There's no way you could trust him. I can't believe they (ASU coaching staff) didn't cut him loose." Added one NFL coach
, "You just scratch your head at some of the knucklehead things he does on tape. It was the same thing over and over and over again with him."
