Burns has been a true standout for the Panthers this year, racking up a total of 9 sacks already this year.
According to a press released from the Panthers, “Burns has 25.5 career sacks and six strip-sacks, which are the highest totals of anyone in the 2019 NFL Draft class. He also has 54 quarterback hits, the second-highest total among his draft class”.
