In Week 4, there were many impressive performances from NFL draft prospects. Few games stood out, however, like Treylon Burks and Devin Lloyd’s dominant showings last Saturday.
Wide receiver Treylon Burks has been a known entity on the Arkansas offense since last year. This season, everyone was just waiting for him to have a big performance. Against Texas A&M, it finally happened.

Treylon Burks went for 160 yards and a touchdown in the first half against Texas A&M. His combination of size and speed was too much for the Aggies and he played a crucial part in upsetting them. Texas A&M was probably the best secondary that Arkansas has faced so far, so it’s no small thing for Burks to blow up against them.
Burks is 6’3”, 215 pounds with blazing speed and impressive ability at the catch point. If Saturday is any indicator of how the rest of his season will go, everyone should move him up draft boards now.
Later on Saturday, linebacker Devin Lloyd put on the defensive performance of the week. The Utah defender was a tackling machine against Washington state, notching 3 TFLs and a sack. He also showed out in coverage for four quarters, including an acrobatic interception.

Lloyd was stifling and playmaking against Washington State, but that’s just the player he’s been since he started getting on the field for the Utes. Lloyd is an athletic, versatile and physical player. While some East coast bias means a lot of media people aren’t staying up for Devon Lloyd’s incredible performances, they’re bound to wake up soon.
