Utah cornerback Brandon Burton said Monday he will enter the 2011 NFL draft.

"It's a family decision," Burton said. "I've gotten good feedback. I can cover in the NFL because that's what I do. I will bring physicality. And good character."

Burton said he was told by the NFL advisory committee he can expect to be drafted in the top three rounds.

Burton, 6-feet-1, 185 pounds, had 51 tackles and two interceptions this season.
