1. Laquon Treadwell- Wide Receiver Ole Miss (Jr.)
Size: 6’2 210lbs
- Great size
- Superior catch radius
- Strong hands
- Great YAC (yards after contact)
Analysis: Treadwell, a Biletnikoff Award finalist, has had a record-breaking 2015 season. The former prized recruit has bounced back after his 2014 campaign was cut four games short due to a gruesome leg injury in which he broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle. Treadwell poses challenges to all defensive backs due to his size, physicality and catch radius. He can make all the catches, even when covered. Not many WR’s are considered ‘sure-things’ in the draft, but Treadwell is as close as you will get in 2016.
- Lacks separation from defenders
- Not a dedicated blocker in the run game
- Route running
- Lacks ‘breakaway’ speed
Analysis: After coming back strong from his 2014 injury, NFL teams will be very thorough in their medical examinations of Treadwell leading up to the draft. While he does not seem to have any side effects, it will remain to be seen whether he passes those medical exams or gets ‘red-flagged’ by NFL teams. Treadwell did not give his all in the running game, failing to block defensive backs, or making half-hearted attempts at blocking smaller defenders. He is not the fastest receiver and will not break away from many DB’s but his size and physicality has been enough at the college level to succeed. His routes were not always crisp, causing defensive backs to stay with him in coverage.
