  Draft Scout by Conference

  Who will Arkansas and quarterback KJ Jefferson turn to at receiver following the departure of Treylon Burks? The Razorbacks, ahead of the 2022 season, have a large void to fill. Selected by the Tennessee Titans with the No. 18 overall pick in the NFL Draft in April, Burks is far from an ordinary talent. The Warren native may very well be the greatest pass catcher the program has ever seen. But Arkansas lost more than just its go-to weapon. The Razorbacks entered spring drills this year minus three of their top four receivers in terms of yardage from a 9-4 season in 2021. Tyson Morris and DeVion Warren were Nos. 2 and 4 in that regard with 337 and 243 yards, respectively. Warren Thompson, a second-year player from Florida State who began his time at Arkansas as a walk-on then earned a scholarship, is the team's top returning receiver. After him, there are question marks.

There is great optimism, however, in Jadon Haselwood, a prize receiver transfer from Oklahoma. And there are great expectations for the 6-3, 211-pound receiver, who has the gifts to lead the Razorbacks on the perimeter. In his last year as a Sooner, he finished third on the team in receiving yards (399) and had team highs in receptions (39) and touchdown catches (6). "He creates mismatches," Jefferson said. "I just make sure I get him the ball a little and put it in the air and just let him make a play. I know he'll come down with it. Just having somebody like that on my team with Burks leaving, he's picking up the slack he left. The only thing we've just got to work on now is timing, and making sure we're both on the same page and thinking alike. "He has a mindset that if he don't catch it then nobody will. Overall, though, I feel like he's the guy that you can just put the ball in his area and he'll go make a play." - Northwest Arkansas Times
