DJ Burns Jr. (C from NC State) garnering attention from NFL execs

Interesting to say the least. 6’9 275 with ballerina feet.

He has a better chance of making it in the NFL than he does in the NBA.

He can probably make around $1m per year playing in Europe. The kid will have some good options.

Stephen Neal had a 10 year career without playing football in college.

This dude has been so fun to watch in the tourney. Some of the quickest feet I’ve ever seen on a man that size. Reminds me of Zach Randolph. Will be interesting to see him matchup against a 7’4 guy.

Supposedly he is 6’7 and would go to the NFL as an UDFA, does he make more there than in an European Pro bball league? I just don’t see him making it.

It depends on his appetite for risk. He can make $10m in Europe over the next 10-15 years. And typically there are a lot of perks as far as housing, car allotments, per diem, etc.

If he goes the football route he’ll probably make at least a few hundred thousand if he flames out. But if he can hack it he could have a 9 figure career.
