NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah says ascertaining the speed of Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell is one of the combine's most fascinating questions.
"Treadwell is an outstanding player," Jeremiah wrote. "He has excellent size, ball skills and toughness. However, the major question about him is the lack of top-end speed. He excels at winning 50/50 balls (contested catches), but he doesn't create much separation from defenders. Scouts that have gone through Ole Miss during the fall were told Treadwell was likely to run the 40-yard dash in the mid 4.6s. If he could lower that time into the mid to low 4.5s, it would be a huge boost to his draft stock." Interestingly, NFL Media colleague Mike Mayock recently compared Treadwell to a combination of Jordy Nelson and Keenan Allen. Allen, you may recall, tumbled into Round 2 after posting a 4.71 forty time at his pro day. Feb 12 - 7:50 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell to a combination of Jordy Nelson and Keenan Allen.

Nelson, a 2014 Pro Bowler who missed last season with a knee injury, is a handful at all levels of the field, a skill Treadwell certainly shares. Treadwell and Allen have just about identical 6-foot-2, 210-pound frames. Allen is a leaper who never fared the best in the 40-yard dash. If Treadwell doesn't run in the 4.4s, remember that Allen perhaps never has and actually posted a 4.71 time at his pro day, partly because a knee injury hampered his preparation.

NFL Media analysts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks say the San Diego Chargers and Los Angeles Rams provide ideal situations for Mississippi WR Laquon Treadwell to fill into.

"Give Philip Rivers a true No. 1," Jeremiah said. "He hasn't had that there in quite some time. They need some more weapons for him there to get that offense rolling again." Brooks, on the other hands, sees a potential splash pick for the Rams in their first year in Los Angeles. "I believe the L.A. Rams would be a nice fit for him. ... Tavon Austin can do some things in the slot," he said. "You have other playmakers like Kenny Britt who can stretch the field. Laquon Treadwell can be the anchor of that passing game. He can play the 'X' (receiver), you can build it around him and allow him to be the focal point of that passing game."

The comparison to Alshon Jeffery "doesn't do" Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell "justice," according to Matt Harmon of NFL.com.

Harmon produces some of the best work on receivers via his #ReceptionPerception brand, and he believes Treadwell is clearly the top receiver in the class. The reason Harmon believes Treadwell transcends the Jeffery comparison is the Rebel's ability to create separation and not just rely on contested catches. "Treadwell has no major holes in his game," Harmon concludes.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks wrote that he sees Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell as "a classic WR1 with the size and ball skills to do the dirty work between the hashes."

This is a down receiving class on the whole, but Treadwell's a legitimate stud in the making. Not only does he have the requisite frame at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, he's also proven himself to have a tremendous work ethic, as he returned from a terrifying broken leg suffered in 2014 to catch 82 passes for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns this past season. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris has written that Treadwell "can win at every level of the field."

Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell as the No. 4 overall draft prospect.

"Treadwell displayed his physical dominance in college both before and after the catch. Treadwell fits the No. 1 receiver template at 6’2/210 lbs," Norris wrote. "His game did not slow down in 2015 after returning from a horrific leg injury. Treadwell can win at every level of the field with position and agility for someone of his size. He is used to catching erratic targets away from his body." The 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell (82 receptions for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns this past year) is Norris' No. 2 WR, ranked slightly behind Corey Coleman.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell "plays like a grown man with his muscular upper body and sleek definition," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.

"He uses his long arms and large hands to create a very large catching radius and is a natural plucker, showing vacuum hands to snatch anything in his general direction. Treadwell does his best work on 50-50 balls, showing above average body control, hand-eye coordination and physicality," Brugler writes. Teams looking for a big bodied playmaker in the first round, should easily have Treadwell high on their list. The Ole Miss prospect returned to form after injury in 2014, hauling in 82 receptions for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns this year.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler mocks Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell to the Dallas Cowboys at No. 4, noting that he "would be an ideal fit opposite" Dez Bryant.

"The Cowboys will consider a quarterback here and need help on defense, but the window is closing with Tony Romo at quarterback and Dallas needs to surround him with more talent. Treadwell, who is similar to Dez Bryant with the way he attacks the football, would be an ideal fit opposite Dez," Brugler wrote. The Ole Miss prospect had solid season coming off a nasty leg injury in 2014, posting 82 receptions for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns this year. Treadwell could be the first receiver off the board in the top half of the first round.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell officially declared for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Treadwell will be widely viewed as the No. 1 receiver in the class, and for good reason. Expect to see Treadwell compared to Dez Bryant and Alshon Jeffery, among others. Treadwell rebounded from a serious knee injury in 2014 and dominated his competition this year, displaying strength before and after the catch. He projects as a No. 1 receiving target on an NFL team.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell caught six passes for 71 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's 48-20 win over Oklahoma State in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

Treadwell ended up third on the team in receiving yardage for the contest, but he caught three of QB Chad Kelly's four touchdown passes. The 6-foot-2, 229-pound junior hauled in a 34-yarder down the left sideline with 11:24 remaining in the second quarter, then followed it up with a 10-yard scoring catch on a slant about five minutes later. Treadwell would cap off the evening with a 14-yard score shortly after the fourth quarter commenced. He finishes the 2015 campaign with 82 catches for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns. Simply fantastic work given the potentially career-ending leg injury he suffered last season. Treadwell has yet to decide whether he'll enter the 2016 NFL Draft. He'll need to make a choice one way or another by January 18. Should he throw his name into the next-level ring, he figures to be one of the first wideouts off the board this spring.

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell told reporters he is still considering returning to school for the 2016 season.

This might just be Treadwell not wanting to make waves prior to the school's bowl game, choosing to announce his decision with less attention and media around between now and Jan. 18. "But nothing is drawing me away from school, nothing is telling me to come out this year," Treadwell said. Many were surprised by tight end Evan Engram's decision to return for the 2016 season, joining defensive end Fadol Brown next year. Treadwell is the odds on favorite to be the first receiver off the board and looked fantastic in his return from a major leg injury.

The No. 16 Oklahoma State Cowboys (10-2) will play the No. 12 Ole Miss Rebels (9-3) in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1.

The Rebels are 7-point favorites. OSU gets back QB Mason Rudolph (foot), who will platoon with J.W. Walsh. The Cowboys have been more efficient when using a QB platoon. OSU's biggest weakness is an inability to run the ball, so the fleet Walsh (285 rushing yards and 11 ground scores, 13/1 TD/INT) gives the offense another dimension. Rudolph is a better passer and has good chemistry with WRs James Washington and David Glidden. The Pokes will have their hands full with WR Laquon Treadwell, who has scored in six of seven games. Mississippi's No. 14 offense (40.25 PPG) grades No. 11 overall in S&P+'s eyes and No. 2 through the air. OSU has a mediocre defense overall but plays the pass well (No. 32 per S&P+) because of a tremendous passing downs sack rate (No. 2) courtesy of DE Emmanuel Ogbah. Ole Miss is only No. 63 offensively at avoiding sacks.

An NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he "[doesn't] think there's a receiver this year that is that [Top-15 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft]."

One of the five scouts interviewed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel compared Ole Miss junior wideout Laquon Treadwell to former Louisville star and current Dolphin DeVante Parker (who was drafted 14th overall by Miami). "Not a great group [of receivers]," the scout said, adding that "it's a similar situation to last year. I don't believe there's that dynamic speed guy like a Phillip Dorsett, which got him in the first round last year."

Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell said he doesn’t think "he has anything else to prove in college" but added he’s "still in the air" about the NFL Draft.

NFL Network reporter Rand Getlin reported a few days ago that Treadwell is leaning towards the draft. It's smart of him to keep his options open, of course. ESPN’s Mark Schlabach reports Treadwell will wait until after the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 to make a decision. "I wasn’t 100 percent (after suffering a leg injury last year)," Treadwell said. "If I’d been back 100 percent, I might have put up twice the production." Heading into bowl season, Treadwell has 76 receptions for 1,082 yards (14.2 yards per catch) and eight touchdowns.

NFL Network reporter Rand Getlin has been told that Ole Miss junior WR Laquon Treadwell "has indicated to multiple sources that he is currently leaning toward entering the NFL draft."

The 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell has a great shot to be the first wideout taken in the 2016 NFL draft, so the news is no surprise. The big-bodied Treadwell is everything teams are looking for in a No. 1 receiver at the next level. The Ole Miss prospect has hauled in 76 receptions for 1082 yards, with 8 touchdowns on his 2015 resume.
