According to Titans Wire, Burks is the 5th draft pick by the Titans to sign a rookie deal joining Hassan Haskins, Kyle Phillips, Theo Jackson, and Chance Campbell, who were all third day selections.
Picks who have yet to come to an agreement include Auburn’s Roger McCreary and Liberty’s Malik Willis.
Burks had a rocky start to his Titans career, as he reportedly left the first day of rookie mini camp early due to being winded.
“I know that they’re working and they think that they are trying to get in shape, but that’s just not the case,” said Titans head coach Mike Vrabel of Burks’ early exit. “That’s something that we have to focus on and try to make sure that we’re getting some work in with all of them. We’re trying to be as smart as we possibly can.”
However, his performance on day two was better as he practiced the entire time without issues.
Burks was the first Razorback taken in the first round since Frank Ragnow was selected by the Detroit Lions with the 20th overall pick in 2018. Burks is also the highest Razorback taken in the NFL Draft sice Darren McFadden was taken 4th overall by the Oakland Raiders in 2008.
