The junior out of Warren, Ark., listed at 6’3” and 225 lbs., is on the 2021 Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the best FBS receiver regardless of position and 2021 Maxwell Award Watch List for the best overall college football player.

Through the first five games of the 2021 college football season, Burks has caught 22 passes for 383 yards and 2 touchdowns.  He’s accumulated the fourth-most receiving yards in the SEC so far this season, trailing the leader by just 84 yards.

His play has been a big reason why the Arkansas football team has been so successful this season. NFL scouts and draft analysts have taken notice have Burks’ stellar play.

This 2022 NFL Mock Draft has Arkansas Football player Trey Burks going in the first round

According to a recent 2022 NFL Mock Draft from CBS Sports, Treylon Burks is projected to be drafted 17th overall to the New Orleans Saints.

In this NFL Mock Draft, analyst Chris Trapasso says this about the Arkansas Razorbacks offensive weapon:

"“Love this pairing. Burks is the big-body type who can thrive in Sean Payton’s offense. He’d flourish as a big slot in the NFL.”"

If drafted to New Orleans, Treylon Burks would give QB Jameis Winston another weapon to utilize in Head Coach Sean Payton’s up-tempo offense.

If selected in the first round, Burks would be just the fourth Razorbacks football player selected in the first round of the NFL Draft since 2008, putting him in some elite company.

The other Hogs drafted in the first round since 2008– center Frank Ragnow (drafted No. 20 overall in 2018), running back Darren McFadden (drafted No. 4 overall in 2008) and running back Felix Jones (drafted No. 22 overall in 2008).
