Prior to the start of the season, many publications called Arkansas WR Treylon Burks the best returning wide receiver in the SEC. Furthermore, Pro Football Focus had Burks listed as their highest-graded returning WR in the conference. However, I’m going to go a step further. I think that Treylon Burks is one of the best receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft class. While it’s still early in the draft evaluation process, if Burks were to declare, he would likely be a first or second round selection.

Below, I’ve embedded a tweet from the PFF College Twitter account, which breaks down the stats surrounding Burks.

Additionally, Daniel Jeremiah, an analyst for the NFL Network, recently had a player comparison for Burks. Given A.J. Brown’s success in the NFL, it’s quite the praise for the Razorbacks wide receiver.

Potential Fits For Treylon Burks In The NFL Draft

Last month, we debuted our 2022 NFL Draft Top 100 Big Board Rankings. Burks was listed as the 60th best prospect, as well as the 7th wide receiver overall. Assuming that his play improves this season, which elevates his draft stock, let’s look at a potential fit in the early second round range.

The Atlanta Falcons could, once again, be looking at an early pick in each round of the Draft. With Julio Jones off to a new home in Tennessee, the Falcons could lineup Burks opposite of Calvin Ridley. By doing so, that would also open up the passing game for tight end Kyle Pitts.

Further, the Chicago Bears have plenty of speed at the wide receiver position, but lack a homerun hitter. Treylon Burks is a dynamic receiver that can stretch the field and help slow the game down for QB Justin Fields.
