The Tennessee Titans traded A.J. Brown away to the Philadelphia Eagles to nab this pick, and they immediately replace him with a player built just like Brown in Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks. He will fill the same role as Brown, and Tennessee won’t have to pay him the big money to do it.

Burks is a big-time playmaker, with a unique ability to make a big play and score from anywhere on the field. He is a physical runner who can make plays after the catch, often moving like a running back with the ball in his hands. He can quickly burst into the secondary and blow past defenses, making them pay for manning up on him.

Burks will start right away, and give the Titans another weapon for Ryan Tannehill when not handing the ball off to Derick Henry. He will play opposite of Pro Bowler Robert Woods, and maintain that dynamic duo they had with their previous receiver gone.
