Eval: Burcham is the type of quarterback you would envision running a Mike Leach style Texas Tech offense. He can pick defenses apart and when he is hot he is almost unstoppable. He shows good poise in the pocket and seems to feel the pressure closing around on him, but will step up in the face of it to deliver a tough ball. He can also buy time with his feet and get outside of the pocket to make things happen. At times he does get cold as well and because he does not have the huge rocket arm he seems to struggle when trying to force things in the middle of the field.
