First round NFL draft pick out of Arkansas is getting “acclimated” to his new professional role with the Tennessee Titans, according to a recent report by ESPN.
With the 18th overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans selected Arkansas WR Treylon Burks – an acquisition made possible by a previous trade that sent A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles which allowed the Titans to move up in the draft.
Roughly one month after the pick, the Titans and their star rookie have begun workouts, but reports have also surfaced that Burks is striving to become “acclimated” to his new role with the professional football team, according to ESPN.
More outlets have covered questions surrounding the rookie’s conditioning in the past few days, but Tennessee head coach Mike Vrabel remains “excited” about Burks potential for a strong first season as a professional.
The heavily favored Titans were upset by the eventual AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals in late January, and the team is in dire need of a solid all-around effort during the 2022 NFL regular season to ensure another shot at the Lombardi Trophy come this winter.
Conditioning has become even more important due to the extended 17-game NFL regular season that only grants the top-seeded team out of each conference a week off heading into the playoffs. The Titans had that advantage in early 2022, but lost by a score of 19-16 to the Bengals on a last-second field goal in the AFC Divisional round.
Tennessee Volunteers Seek Super Regional Postseason Baseball Appearance
The number one ranked Division I NCAA college baseball team in the country – the Tennessee Volunteers – opened their postseason at Lindsey Nelson stadium in Knoxville with a 10-0 shutout win over the Alabama State Hornets.
A Saturday night showdown against the Campbell Fighting Camels out of North Carolina resulted in the Vols advancing to the championship round of their own regional tournament, which is a double elimination event. Following an early scare in which the Fighting Camels went up 4-0 in the bottom of the 3rd Inning, the Vols came up with seven runs in the middle stanzas and ultimately won the contest 12-7 thanks in part to a 4-run ninth inning..
One more victory will ensure Tennessee advances to the Super Regional, which will be a best-of-three series against the Statesboro regional winner – most likely the Georgia Southern Eagles at this point.
The Campbell Fighting Camels will play the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Sunday to determine who will play against the Volunteers in the Knoxville regional championship.

However, in order to make it past the regionals this year, the ‘Dores will be required to win two games in a row against the #3 ranked team in the country – the Oregon State Beavers – in Corvallis.
