Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell is the best underclassmen wide receiver prospect in the country, believes ESPN's Mel Kiper.
"The physical gifts are obvious: Treadwell is 6-2, 229 pounds with strong hands, good strength and the quickness of a much smaller player," Kiper wrote. "Now it's about recovering from the gruesome leg/ankle injury he suffered midway through last season. Based on the reports I have, there's no reason to bet against a big junior season." The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell hauled in 48 receptions for 632 yards and five touchdowns for the Rebels last season prior to his gruesome November leg injury. Jul 9 - 7:06 PM

"Doesn't matter if he's smothered, just throw it to him," Jeremiah tagged to a play showing Treadwell elevating along the sideline in one on one coverage against Alabama. Jeremiah added the receiver has a "natural feel" for back shoulder throws and is competitive after the catch. We are excited to see Treadwell return from his serious leg injury and work with a different quarterback. He should remain the focus of Ole Miss' offense, along with Evan Engram.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell "has some of the smoothest footwork off the snap that you will find for any wideout in college football," believes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The scribe ranks Treadwell as the No. 8 receiver in the country, a surprisingly low grade. "His stutter-steps into his routes and into his breaks create confusion and separation, and he runs like a running back after the catch with a combination of elusiveness and necessary toughness to rip through arm tackles," Zierlein wrote. "The negatives? Treadwell runs basic routes at Ole Miss and he must prove he can return at full-speed after suffering a broken fibula and dislocated ankle last season." The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell hauled in 48 receptions for 632 yards and five touchdowns for the Rebels last season prior to that November injury.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay believes Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell exhibits skills beyond his years.

"Treadwell is already a crafty vet," McShay tweeted. He "excels (at) creating late separation (and) has body control to adjust last second. Underrated (run after catch) weapon too." Treadwell is reportedly progressing well form the horrific leg injury he suffered last year, including a broken fibula and dislocated ankle. His combination of size, strength and fluidity is obvious.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown believes Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell is the best receiver in the country.

"A freakish athlete, the 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell will be a highly coveted NFL prospect, especially if he continues to make a speedy recovery from the leg injury," Brown wrote. Before that injury, the 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell hauled in 48 receptions for 632 yards and five touchdowns. Treadwell's value wasn't lost on Ole Miss fans, who suffered through a shut out by Arkansas and a dreadful three point performance against TCU after Treadwell went down. "On the field, no receiver can match his combination of size, speed and physicality," Brown wrote.

ESPN's Alex Scarborough believes Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell is the best receiver in the SEC.

"When Treadwell is healthy, he's a game-changer -- a receiver with above-average size, speed and strength. More importantly, he has that rare trait of elusiveness. He makes it look so effortless when he creates space," Scarborough wrote. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell hauled in 48 receptions for 632 yards and five touchdowns for Rebels last season, prior to breaking his fibula and dislocating his ankle in November. If Treadwell can stay healthy, he should have a monster season in 2015.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell is a near lock for SEC Comeback Player of the Year and SEC Offensive Player of the Year if he remains healthy, writes ESPN's Alex Scarborough.

"There might not be a cornerback in the SEC capable of covering him," Scarborough wrote. "He's too big. He's too fast. He's got too good a set of hands. The one fair matchup might be Vernon Hargreaves III, and we'll be lucky enough to see how that plays out when Ole Miss goes to Florida on Oct. 3." The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder had 48 receptions for 632 yards and five scores last season before he broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle in November.

He's strong and runs good routes, creating separation out of his breaks." The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Treadwell has collected 120 catches for over 1,240 yards and 10 touchdowns across 22 career games.
