So sitting here bored on a Thursday night, I was just browsing different mock drafts and general NFL news, for some reason Vontaze Burfict popped in my head and I asked myself, "whatever happened to that Vontaze Burfict kid?" Talk about strange. Just two months ago a lot of people compared him to Ray Lewis
and how he is a sure fire top 10 pick, even a lot of Panther fans on here wanted him to be our pick. So sitting here I thought I would type in Vntaze Burfict in Google just to see if this kid was even still alive.
Frankly I was shocked what I found. The most recent headline I saw was; "Vontaze Burfict bombs his pro day." I then saw more headlines; "Vontaze Burfict crashes and burns at combine." "Vontaze Burfict might fall out of draft completely and might be lucky to be signed as a undrafted free agent." My jaw dropped. The next Ray Lewis and undrafted free agent in the same sentence, I thought to myself.
I then started to grin from ear to ear. Asking the "What ifs". Let's get real, I dont think Vontaze will fall out of the draft completely. I do however think he will fall to the 6th round. With that being said, I ask my fellow Panther fans. If Vontaze Burfict fell to the 6th round, would you want Hurney to pull the trigger? Keep in mind, this guy was being compared to Ray Lewis just 2 months ago. Also keep in mind we now have two 6th round picks. My take? Hell to the yes take a chance on this kid in the 6th round! What is your take?
