NFL Draft Rumors: Trey Burton 'creating buzz'

Former Florida Gators Trey Burton has trouble finding a position.

He started as a quarterback at Florida, but soon became a wildcat specialist. He’s lined up at running, h-back, tight end and wide receiver and ran with the tight ends during the NFL scouting combine (where he ran a 4.62 40-yard dash).

According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and The National Football Post, Burton is “creating buzz due to his versatility and has had several private workouts.”

At the combine, Burton measured in at 6’2 and 224 pounds.

Scouts described him as “a savvy, athletic, undersized H-back who was utilized in a flexed receiving role in the Gators’ offense,” that he “has the athletic traits to earn a living working detached out of the slot as an “F” tight end” and “can offer a creative offensive coordinator a versatile jack-of-all-trades gimmick weapon.”

In four seasons with the Gators, Burton had 153 carries for 720 career yards and 16 touchdowns, made 107 receptions for 976 yards and four touchdowns and completed 11 of 17 passes for 103 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
