EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota got some help for Teddy Bridgewater when they selected Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell with the No. 23 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Treadwell has natural ball skills and showed the ability to go up and get those 50-50 balls in his time at Ole Miss. He should fit in nicely as the possession receiver the Vikings need.
Here’s a quick by-the-number look at Treadwell:
23 … After a few hours of waiting the Vikings used the No. 23 pick to select Treadwell.
6-2 … Treadwell stands 6-foot-2. He should slide in and give Teddy Bridgewater a big possession wide receiver to go along with speedster Stefon Diggs.
221 … Weighing in at 221 pounds, Treadwell brings a bulkiness that should make him a legitimate red-zone target for Bridgewater.
4.63 … In seconds, Treadwell’s 40-yard dash time at the Ole Miss pro day back in March.
33.5 … In inches, Treadwell’s verticlal jump at the Ole Miss pro day back in March.
202 … Number of receptions Treadwell recorded in his career at Ole Miss. He caught 21 touchdowns in his 35 games at Ole Miss.
20 … Treadwell is still just 20 years old. He turns 21 in June.
