3. Treylon Burks, Tennessee Titans

In a move they likely still regret, the Tennessee Titans traded A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for the 18th and 101st pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. With the first of those selections, they brought in Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks in hopes of developing him into their next WR1.

Burks was fresh off a strong junior campaign with 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns on 66 receptions. Like Brown, he was also a big-bodied target at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds. He was even compared to Brown by NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, who said he was like the outgoing Tennessee wideout but "with more wiggle."

Not known as a burner, Burks ran a 4.55 in the 40-yard dash which is more than enough speed for him to continue to produce in the NFL. Unfortunately, he has yet to put it all together for the Titans.

Burks had a decent rookie campaign with 444 yards and a touchdown on 33 receptions. Then when DeAndre Hopkins was signed in the offseason, he became an afterthought. Burks finished year two with just 16 catches for 221 yards and no touchdowns.

Entering his third season, Burks is now sitting on the chopping block. Tennessee added Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd in free agency and Hopkins returns for his second season in Music City. That pushes Burks to fourth at best, meaning he could be available if Dallas believes they can help him reach his potential.
