Treylon Burks describes SEC battle in practice against Auburn's Roger McCreary
For Treylon Burks and Roger McCreary, the battle continues.
Burks, a former Arkansas wide receiver, and McCreary, a former Auburn defensive back, have taken their talents to the NFL and were the top 2 draft picks for the Tennessee Titans.
So it was no surprise that the 2 have faced off throughout the first days training camp.
Burks appreciates the work.
“You know we’re from the SEC,” Burks said. “Grew up being competitive, physical and, you know, he’s a really really good player and brings that competition every day.”
