Treylon just wants to fish, it seems we have several players with this affliction.

I just hope we don't have any painters

I think that the kid and our receivers in general are going to be unstoppable.  If you want a quick fix in this kind of system, receiver is where you get it.  The offense could be night and day from last year.

Id keep him as the last man back on punts and kickoffs... and I would also let him return some kicks.  Just think the kid might be just as good defensively..

Receiving Kicks I disagree, punts maybe.  I think we have better kick off returners.  We have some real straight mind speed wheels on this team to place back there

speed isnt everything... patience.. find the hole.. and hit it hard.. I dont think we will see him return punts. Unless we just need a for sure catch.

Joe Foucha was asked which young offensive player has been standing out and he said hands down it's Burks. Said Knox is a beast but Burks is something else. Big guy and really fast, said Burks reminds him of Julio Jones.

I’m not sure it is appreciated how much difference that dominate receivers can make.

Picture Nick Starkel in the pocket and our offensive line shows the resiliency of a wet paper towel.  Starkel panics and his thought process is something like “Holy crap!  Aaaahhhhhhhhhh!” as he heaves the ball in the general direction of Burks.  Instead of an INT or incompletion, Burks adjusts, uses his size and strength, and muscles the ball in for a catch and first down. 

That guy at A&M and Johnny Manziel played that game over and over for two years.

Yep, and people are going to have to provide support for the primary defenders of those guys. TE and Slot guys should get some excellent opportunities as well, not to mention how it should open up the running game.

Like some others, I can see this offense coming together before long, even fairly early this season.

I'll tell you the guy nobody is talking about. John David White. He will be an X-factor at some point in the slot, mark it down. His high school highlight tape is one of the best I've ever seen and I've watched a bunch.

Not sure we see much of him this year... but I think a year or two he can definitely be a factor in the slot!!! Still honestly cant believe he didnt get more recruiting attention from some smaller D1 schools at least.

I fully expect Burks and Knox to be three year starters for Arkansas before leaving early for the NFL (barring injury).
Burks could be the best receiver the Hogs have had since Greg Childs, or maybe even going back twenty years, all the way to Anthony Lucas! Burks is as tall as both of those guys, but he's thicker, seems stronger, seems faster, and has similar talent (if not more talented) compared to either of those former Hogs!
Knox could end up being the new Marcus Monk!
Throw in Nash, TQ, and Hudson Henry, and these receivers/TE's are the best to hit the Fayetteville campus since the 2008 crew of Childs, Wright, Adams, and Gragg.

He's special. He's phenomenally talented and he seems to be just a great great kid who is wise beyond his age or any age. I can't wait to see him score TDs. Since I watched his HS games I have thought he was capable of being truly great. And I feel like he has a chance to be a monster!

In this senior your TE becomes a top draft pick ALONG with said receiver.  Guess what we have waiting at the TE with 5 years to play 4.... hmm

Burks would be the biggest KR I have ever seen. I wouldn't play him there but he could do it. I really think he could play a bunch of positions and excel.

I hope they don't do what Nutt did with DMac and wait 3-4 games play him right off. He's different. He won't be here for his senior year he's NFL talent and from what I have read and heard from people from that area he's just going to work and work not afraid to work. Turn him loose.

Mike Evans. One of the most frustrating things to watch. And he's still doing it - had 1500 yards last year. In his 5 years in the NFL he's never not had a 1000 yard season. Granted, the dude was the #7 overall pick in the draft but point still taken having someone go make plays is huge.

Any way you look at it,y’all—we are blessed to have a young man like Treylon. I think the combination of his personality (quiet, focused intensity, confident with no traces of arrogance) combined with Trey Knox’s personality (outgoing, happy, full go on snap)—I can see guys like that injecting confidence in the whole team.

Yes, we got several other weapons as well. But I gotta feeling we will be talking about these young receivers for a long time.

Anyone know if Burks is still battling pain in that knee?  Seemed like in a couple of the photos and vids he might have been struggling with it but was pushing through.

I really hope it is 100% and he has a great career without ever looking back. (unless it is to see the ball dropping over his shoulder as he enters the endzone)

They have very good trainers and doctors up there and if they see any swelling or Burks favoring that knee they I am sure Burks will be asked about it and necessary steps taken.

Knee surgery was 10 months ago and if he has not reinjured it since and he has followed his PT advisers and restrengthened that knee then it can be stronger than the other knee.

The combination of a porous offensive line and receivers who can't get open quickly (or at the top of the route, for that matter) is an absolute recipe for disaster.  You can get by with strong o-line play with receivers who require time to get open.  You can get by with an iffy o-line if you have receivers that can get either vertical or horizontal separation quickly.  You'll get killed if you have neither.

This year, having explosive receivers will transform this offense, especially if the o-line improves even incrementally.  I am cautiously optimistic.

Knee is 100%.  Freak injuries can happen walking across campus.  He’s more likely to get hurt getting rolled up blocking on the edge than ST’s.  If this was a chronic issue, like concussions, backs, or feet, I would agree.  Now days with knees, if you fix it right and take care of it in rehab, you can return quickly, and sometimes, better than ever.  There is a very long list is successful ACL repairs in the NFL over the last 5 years.  It’s not like it used to be.

No need to be scared. You know what you see. We're going to be lots better this year. Maybe ridiculous better. These kids, Burks being one, are bringing a new standard in mental toughness. They're bought in from the start and the team has a completely different mental makeup. That, more than anything was our main issue. They were beat before they got on the field, or knew they were going to lose in the 4th quarter. Say bye bye to that crap.

having 2 true receiver threats is going to make this offense dangerous.  even if the oline isn't great, if we can get the ball off quickly, it gives them a chance to make a play and get down field.

Talk about an impact in one class. Knox and Burks will likely end up starters and could break freshman records. Soli is poised to be a 3rd down specialist and get ample time in the rotation in year 1, which is big for a lineman. The last true freshman we had doing damage on the line was Sosa in 2016.

Catalon should figure into the safety rotation, and Brooks has locked down a starting spot at nickel already. He is also getting a shot at punt and kick returns from what I've read.
