2013 Mountain West player rankings, No. 40: Wyoming CB Blair Burns

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE

The 50 player countdown to the start of the 2013 college football season continues with No. 40.

The countdown of the 50 best Mountain West players continues with the No. 40 selection being another defender in Wyoming Cowboys cornerback Blair Burns. The Wyoming defense was not good in 2012 yet Burns was able to shine in the secondary.

In 2012 he knocked down 10 passes that came his way and he also got a hand on another for an amazing 99-yard interception return for a touchdown. Plus, Wyoming's rushing game was not good so he had to get involved in that aspect of the defense, and he racked up 60 tackles. Burns also was on special teams where he returned punts for the first half of the season, and on 12 returns he averaged just over 10 yards a return.
