NC State‘s star athlete DJ Burns has caught the attention of NFL scouts following his remarkable performance in the NCAA Tournaments. The 6-9, 275-pound forward has been a standout player for NC State, leading them through a surprising series of victories.

Burns’ stellar averages of 18.3 points, 5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game during the NCAA Tournament have turned heads, showcasing his versatile skill set on the court. His finesse around the basket, strong passing abilities, and potential NBA prospects have established him as a rising talent.

Recently, reports surfaced that Burns could be a prospect in the NFL as well. Peter Schrager, an analyst from Good Morning Football, brought up the possibility of Burns attracting NFL teams with his physical attributes and skill set post-NCAA Tournament.

While some initially questioned the validity of the claims, Jim Nagy, the director of the Senior Bowl, confirmed that NFL talent evaluators have expressed genuine interest in DJ Burns. The idea of Burns transitioning to an offensive tackle in the NFL has sparked intrigue among pro football scouts.

Notable NBA-to-NFL transitions in the past, including players like Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham, and Julius Thomas, have paved the way for athletes from different sports backgrounds to find success in football. With his size, footwork, and potential, Burns could be another intriguing prospect for NFL teams to consider.

Burns, who showcased his football skills playing tight end and defensive end during his youth, has expressed his primary focus on pursuing a career in the NBA. However, he remains open to exploring opportunities in the NFL should his basketball aspirations not materialize.
