NFL comparison - Andre Johnson

Yes, please.
I wouldn’t say more pro-ready than Olave. Burks is essentially a taller AJ Brown… a slot receiver motioned around a lot. He doesn’t have a real diverse route tree lined up out wide.

But Burks is like Brown and DK Metcalf coming from Ole Miss in 2019, they actually have higher ceilings because their programs weren't as complex, deep...

And yet they still competed against the best of the best in the SEC, so they've faced high, future NFL competition that you can get a better gauge...

Yeah that’s a pretty good point. Burks has been tasked with doing everything, even used in a H-Back role, at the highest level and he’s still been incredibly productive. I wasn’t knocking Burks; just think he’ll take a little more development at the pro level.

Fun fact: Treylon Burks is a bonafide good ol’ boy who actually hunts wild hogs with just a knife.

Re: 2022 NFL Draft: Draft Prospects, Scouting

In a draft with no QB’s or LT’s worthy of being the #1 pick, Hutchinson and Kayvon Thibodeaux are neck and neck for the top pick.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, if the Lions stay the course and land the #1 pick, Ann Arbor is only 45 minutes away from Detroit so taking Hutchinson would be awesome for the fans.

Gotta' go O-line, WR, and DT desperately. That's the order I would pick them in as well.

The Saints have no shot at drafting Hutchinson ...

Besides, they'll select a kid no one is even talking about or a program we've never heard of with a medical history.
