The 2018 NFL Draft was a whirlwind of excitement as the Titans drafted Treylon Burks and other players with some bright futures ahead. To get an idea at what to expect from each player, we looked into their past performance in high school. Here’s how they stacked up!
The top-seeded Tennessee Titans’ 2021 season came to a dismal conclusion as they were eliminated from the playoffs in the Divisional Round at home against the Cincinnati Bengals, after a 12-5 season and a second consecutive AFC South championship. Despite this, Mike Vrabel was elected Coach of the Year, which he earned.
The Titans didn’t make a big impact during free agency and trade season, but they did address some pass-catching issues by signing tight end Austin Hooper and dealing for wide receiver Robert Woods. After sending A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles in a blockbuster deal, Tennessee had another receiving need to fill in the 2022 NFL Draft.
They quickly replaced him with Arkansas wideout Treylon Burks, who was taken in the second round.

So, if you’re going to trade away a big, powerful wideout to avoid having to give him a huge deal, you may as well pick his successor. And that’s precisely what the Titans accomplished when they selected Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks in the first round.
Burks, on the other hand, is a couple of inches taller. His stature and speed combination of 6’3′′ and 225 pounds may be the finest in this unique class of receivers.
