Get To Know Your Orange Man - No. 73, OT Jon Burton

Syracuse has a lot of depth on the offensive line this year.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Jon Burton

Position: Offensive tackle

Year: (Redshirt) Junior

Height: 6'8"

Weight: 319

Hometown: Spotsylvania, Va.

High School: Courtland

2015 Stats: Burton saw the field in two different games, both on special teams.

2016 Projections: Burton's currently slated as the Syracuse Orange's third left tackle, so that doesn't project to be a ton of playing time on the line. But perhaps he's plugged in further at special teams.

How'd He Get Here: Former Orange offensive line coach Greg Adkins brought him into the fold, and Syracuse managed to hold onto him despite aggressive pursuit from other schools after Adkins's departure. Take that, other schools.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say: ESPN's the only one to give him three stars, so that's the only one that counts in our book.

Links of Wonder: Syracuse.com did a pretty detailed breakdown on Burton when he first arrived on campus.

Twitterfeed: Jon Burton has no use for Twitter.

Tweets of Wonder: People don't really tweet about Jon. That's fine.

What Does The Coaching Staff Think of Him: Since Jon's on the offensive line, that probably means Dino Babers wants him to lose some weight.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Burton's still the tallest player on the roster at 6-foot-8.
