Treylon Burks
Arkansas Razorbacks


Pros

Dietz: Burks aligns as the starting outside receiver for the Razorbacks. Possesses a very large frame, ideal for a X-receiver. Extremely fluid athlete, long strider who showcases his acceleration and burst in a flash. Release is smooth with very few hiccups. Impressive hands - high points the ball well and has the ability to contort his body to haul in wayward passes. Insane how well of a separator he is - not the most polished route runner but he can break from his pathway and make catches vertically and over the middle. Very astute blocker - size helps a lot in this department.

Cons

Dietz: Burks is, as previously mentioned, not the most nuanced when it comes to route runner - expected for a man his size, but his flexibility should allow him to get better in this department. While vertically his athleticism is apparent, disappointing agility and lateral quickness. Does not possess the shiftiness to evade defenders on screens. Despite his fantastic production in 2020, could be a little more consistent; gives up a play here and there when he knows he won’t be involved.

Summary

Dietz: Treylon Burks is not only the best prospect on the Arkansas Razorbacks, but he very may be the best wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft class. He has everything you look for in a dominant WR1 in the NFL - size, speed, catching ability, and work ethic. It will be interesting to see how he fares in the Razorbacks offense this year with Feleipe Franks in the NFL. Despite his (very minor) flaws, he’s one of those few skill position guys whose flashes show he can be a dominant player in the future.


One-Liners

Dietz: “Burks needs some polish with route running, but everything else displays his elite talent and top-10 pick potential.”

Latest News 

Speaking at SEC Media Day, Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman divulged on inner-conversations he had with wide out Treylon Burks during the offseason. “What he needed to do to become a standout, an unbelievable player, is get in better shape and we talked to him about that,” Pittman stated. “Just going out there and hunting them Hogs wasn't really getting him in the greatest shape in the world, so he had to do more than just that. He has done that. He's lost some weight. He looks good. He's more confident, things of that nature. He's got 5XL hands. He's just a tremendous person, a south Arkansas, Warren, Arkansas kid.” This will resonate well with scouts, as Burks was already considered to be a potential first round pick in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft. The long, athletic playmaker is one to watch as we approach the college football season, his stock is on the ascension. - (07/26/21)
