Burden, who is walking after suffering a broken ankle in the third quarter of the Yellow Jackets’ bowl game win over Kentucky on New Year’s Eve, will be weighed and measured by scouts and will also take part in the bench-press portion of the evaluation.
With his rehabilitation schedule, he doesn’t expect to be able to work out for scouts prior to the NFL draft. He takes encouragement from two former teammates who were in similar predicaments but managed to make it to the NFL – former Tech wide receiver DeAndre Smelter and defensive tackle Adam Gotsis. Both tore their ACL’s late in their senior seasons, which rendered them unable to test for scouts before the draft. Both, though, were drafted.
