PRO: The Titans selected Treylon Burks in the first round (18th overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he totaled 33 receptions for 444 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. The 6-foot-2-inch, 225-pounder brings a rare combination of size, speed and sure hands. The Arkansas product is a powerful runner with the ball in his hands, and he can be used all over the offensive formation as well as in the return game. In three college seasons (2019-21), he became the sixth all-time leading receiver in Razorbacks history (146 receptions for 2,399 yards) and tied for the fifth-most touchdown catches in school annals (18). He was drafted with the highest pick of any Arkansas player since Darren McFadden was taken fourth overall in 2008, and he was the first Arkansas wide receiver to be selected in the first round since Matt Jones was taken 21st overall by Jacksonville in 2006.
