3. WR Treylon Burks

It feels like a matter of when -- not if -- Treylon Burks gets moved this summer.

The Titans have overhauled their WR corps over the last two years, beginning with winning the D'Andre Hopkins sweepstakes last summer. They have since signed Calvin Ridley to a monster contract and inked Tyler Boyd to presumably be their tertiary receiver.

That leaves Burks on the periphery of Tennessee's offense. A first-round pick just two years ago, Burks is a former Cowboys draft crush. They reportedly ranked him as the No. 23 prospect in the entire 2022 class. The Titans took Burks four picks before Dallas, which opted for Tulsa guard Tyler Smith.

The Smith pick was nothing short of genius, but the Cowboys have a rare full-circle opportunity to make Burks theirs after all. Like Marshall, Burks has disappointed early in his career, totaling 665 receiving yards and one touchdown. Injuries have limited him to 22 games and he clearly isn't a fit in new head coach Brian Callahan's offense.

Burks is best suited in the slot. Luckily for him, CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks are comfortable playing inside and out. Burks has underwhelmed, but it's not often a former first-round pick can be had for a day three pick.
