  Draft Scout by Conference

  Asked to describe the football player Luther Burden III, Missouri receivers coach Jacob Peeler didn't describe Burden playing football. "We were doing a dodgeball tournament one day," Peeler said Sunday. "A team-development thing. Whether it's dodgeball or football, he just likes to compete...I think the one thing that I saw in the spring is just his competitive character." As for a scouting report on Burden's dodgeball acumen, Peeler described what stood out in a word: "Elusiveness."

Camp opens Monday and Burden, a freshman, will leap for passes both at practice and in the daydreams of alums in cubicles across the state. Mizzou has the No. 1 wide receiver in the class of 2022 - and he's from St. Louis, too - and there is this belief that the Tigers surely have college football's next D.K. Metcalf. Doesn't hurt that the Tigers already have Metcalf's collegiate receivers coach in, yep, Peeler (oh, and A.J. Brown's receivers coach, too). Burden was a consensus five-star recruit from East St. Louis High who was Rivals Illinois High School Player of the Yar. As a senior he caught 71 passes for 1,174 yards, 20 touchdowns and returned 21 punts for 852 yards with eight going for scores. - Post Dispatch
