2014 NFL Draft Profile: Fresno State WR Isaiah Burse

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The former Bulldog isn't receiving quite as much attention as his teammate Davante Adams, but NFL teams might buy into Burse's potential as a weapon on special teams.

Isaiah Burse, Wide Receiver, Fresno State

Mocking the Draft positional ranking: N/A

Mocking the Draft overall ranking: N/A

Strengths: Elusiveness is complemented by an ability to suddenly change directions, particularly as a kick returner. Has a knack for identifying the soft spot in zone coverage.

Weaknesses: His quickness doesn't necessarily translate to an ability to separate from defenders. A signifcant amount of production could be considered scheme-dependent, as it was derived from a variety of screen plays which may not be as prominent in some pro offenses. Just passable strength to break tackles and run block.

The Bottom Line: In this deep wide receiver class, Burse's skill set should make him a good third day value. He can contribute on special teams, and deserves a chance at a slot receiver role. He's similar to another former Fresno State receiver, Devon Wylie, though perhaps a step slower with regards to straight-line speed, and he doesn't have Wylie's injury history. He may not be a star, but a number of teams could make room for him.

Projected round: 7

Projected likely destination: Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Detroit Lions
