Last name is pronounced “BURN-steen.” The Iowa prep was a Parade All-American who was also used as a running back and punter. Saw action in all 12 games as a true freshman in 2007, recording nine tackles, zero pass breakups and zero interceptions while returning two kickoffs for 27 yards (13.5-yard average). Had a shoulder surgery and missed spring practice. Played in 12 games in ’08, missing only the season-opener with an undisclosed injury, and registered 12-1-1. Fractured his ankle during ’09 preseason camp and sat out the season with a medical redshirt. Was arrested in June ’10 for public intoxication but returned in the fall to see action in eight contests and manage 4-0-0. Missed five games due to leg and hamstring injuries. Played in 12 games in ’11, making the final 11 starts at strong safety, and recorded 89-2-0 with three tackles for loss, one sack and one forced fumble. Led the team in kickoff returns with 30-713-0 (23.8) and did not play against Iowa State (strep throat).Summary:
Has the size and mentality of a safety combined with the speed and explosion of a cornerback, as evidenced by his 41-inch vertical leap and broad jump of 10 feet 7 inches. Played both positions at Iowa, starting at strong safety as a senior, while averaging 24.4 yards on 30 kickoffs. Seeks the big hit, but tackles inconsistently and is not as instinctive as he is athletic. Durability has been an issue, though he could be attractive as a reserve DB/special-teamer.
