Film Review

Shamburger stands at about 5 feet 11 inches and weighs in at around 190 pounds. As a cornerback, he is skilled at staying with his man as well as snagging interceptions. He does well in watching the ball and always being ready. His reported 40-yard dash time of 4.47 seconds proves his quickness, which he uses to stay with receivers.

On offense, Shamburger is light on his feet and able to move around quickly to get to the end zone. Once he is gone with the ball, it is very hard to catch him.

Shamburger possesses great talent, and will only get faster and stronger as long as he plays. He has many strong qualities that the coaching staff can take advantage of. If handled correctly, he could become a Vol favorite over the years. Shamburger has the potential to bring speed to the Tennessee defense and make some critical plays. He will be a good addition to the team and is definitely talented enough to make an impact.
