INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Former Utah Utes safety Terrell Burgess impressed scouts the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine.

The results that Burgess had during the Combine will likely improve his draft stock.

He competed in most of the drills but did not do the three-cone drill or the 20-yard shuttle.

The NFL hands out prospect grades to each participant in the Combine that is based off of everything they do. The grading scale is from 5.0 to 8.0. An 8.0 grade is considered a perfect prospect. Burgess received a 6.20 grade which is considered “good backup who could become starter.”

NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein compared Burgess to Damarious Randall.

Here are the measurements for Burgess at the Combine.

  • Height: 5-11
  • Weight: 202 lbs.
  • Arms: 29 1/2″
  • Hands: 9 1/4″

40-Yard Dash

As a safety, Burgess ran a 4.46 40-yard dash. Among the safeties, that is the fifth fastest time only behind L’Jarius Sneed from Louisiana Tech (4.37), Tanner Muse from Clemson (4.41), Jeremy Chinn from Southern Illinois (4.45) and Minnesota’s Antoine Winfield Jr. (4.45).

The slowest time from the safeties was Jalen Elliott from Notre Dame with 4.80.

Bench Press

Burgess put up an impressive 20 reps of 225 lbs. in the bench press which was the fourth most reps among all defensive backs and the third most for safeties. His secondary teammate Javelin Guidry had 21 reps on the bench press.

Arkansas’ Kamren Curl and Auburn’s Daniel Thomas had the most reps as safeties with 24.

Vertical Jump

Burgess leaped 33.5 inches in the vertical jump which was tied with Rodney Clemons from SMU and Iowa’s Geno Stone.

The highest vertical jump among the safeties came from Kyle Dugger from Lenoir-Rhyne (Division II) with 42 inches.

Broad Jump

On the broad jump, Burgess recorded 122 inches which was tied with Ohio State’s Jordan Fuller and Xavier McKinney from Alabama.

The longest jump in the group was Jeremy Chinn from Southern Illinois with 138 inches.
