In my last article surrounding Burks, I talked about how important the Arkansas vs Alabama game would be for his draft stock. And he did not disappoint in the slightest.
The Miami Dolphins wideout room could be facing a complete shakeup this offseason which could lead the team to target Arkansas' Treylon Burks.
Against one of the top defenses in the country, one that features multiple future NFL players, Burks went for 8 receptions for 179 yards and 2 touchdowns including a 66-yard touchdown reception that came mostly after the catch.
Burks is the perfect alternative if the Dolphins choose to move on from Parker. At 6-foot-3, Burks is a big-bodied wideout that has proven he can get it done after the catch or over the top of a defense.
Moving on from Parker would also save the Phins cap space that would allow them to prioritize players like Mike Gesicki, who remain locked up for the future.
Burks is on the edge of a 1,000-yard season for the Razorbacks, he currently has 975, and has 10 touchdowns on the season. His 59 receptions and 16.5 yards-per-catch average proves he does not need many opportunities to explode.
If Miami does choose to go wideout, Burks could offer more upside than the Ohio State duo or USC’s Drake London, who is recovering from an ACL injury.
