TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- As we approach the end of the first week of fall camp for FSU football, a couple of things have stuck out.

Nyqwan Murray looks to be at or around 100 percent. Defensive tackle Marvin Wilson is back out there for the Noles.

But, perhaps the most impressive guy on the field so far has been Brian Burns.

The Sophomore defensive end is coming off an All-American freshman season where he led all freshman in the country with 9.5 sacks.

In camp, he's been flying all over the place, and is emerging as the defensive leader Florida State needs after the departures of Derwin James and Derrick Nnadi.

In fact, Burns has been so good, that his coaches are trying to hide it.

"He's good. He's okay, shhh," joked Harlon Barnett, FSU's defensive coordinator.

"His get-off and his behind remind me of Myles Garrett," said defensive ends coach Mark Snyder. "I mean, that's the only guy that I've been around that can do what Brian can do rushing the quarterback."

Snyder's comparison is a strong one, as Garret was selected with the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
