Burton was named to Mel Kiper’s All Rookie Team and finishing with the 3rd highest grade among all fullbacks league-wide according to Pro Football Focus. After a strong four years at West Morris Central High School, Burton started as a walk on at Rutgers, but by his senior season the Long Valley, NJ native was named Team Captain. Burton was the winner of the 2014 Paul Robeson Award for performance, leadership and dedication on and off the field.
