NFL Network Pro Comparison: DeAndre Hopkins
Laquon Treadwell has no fear.
While some wide receivers dread receiving vicious hits, the Ole Miss product instead turns the table on the opposition.
Treadwell uses his physical 6-2, 221-pound frame to outmuscle his opponent whenever possible. One of the most competitive and passionate players in the draft, he relishes going over the middle and tries to make the defense pay whenever they attempt to tackle him. He also excels doing the dirty work as he takes pride in his blocking. A natural receiver with soft hands, Treadwell catches nearly every pass thrown his way and thrives on 50/50 jump balls.
The wide receiver is no stranger to adversity. Treadwell exploded onto the scene with 72 catches for 608 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman before breaking his fibula as a sophomore. He bounced back for a dynamic 2015 season in which he caught 82 passes for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns. Treadwell's signature performance came in his final game when he caught six passes for 71 yards and three touchdowns in the Rebels' 48-20 Sugar Bowl victory over Oklahoma State.
While not a burner, pundits say he has more speed and athleticism than he is given credit for. With natural hands and an unrivaled passion for the game, Treadwell is a safe bet to hear his name called early on day one.
