He's good in a good group. None appears to be game changers. Someone like Treadwell might be average while a guy projected from the 5th to 7th like UMass WR Sharpe could be a star. The Saints need defense in a very talented, deep defensive class. They should go defense unless a can't miss OT like Stanley falls to them.

Marques Colston ran a 4.5 - not that much faster. Treadwell will make a difference wherever he lands.

Colston was listed as a TE/WR project much different than Treadwell who's being talked up as the #1 WR in this class

Laquon Treadwell was clocked unofficially in the mid-4.6s on Monday when he ran the 40-yard dash at Ole Miss' pro day. The times legitimize scouting concerns that Treadwell, arguably the top wide receiver in the 2016 NFL Draft, doesn't have the vertical speed NFL clubs typically look for when investing a first-round pick in a wide receiver.

His 3-cone and short-shuttle were pretty bad as well.
Yeah, thats horrible. Just looked up Colston and even his slow butt ran a 4.5 at his combine. Maybe this pushes him into the late 1st or better yet the mid 2nd?

Charles Brown (round 2), Andy Alleman (round 3) were second day picks...

We need to draft the best available player when it's our selection irregardless of Brees and his window...

Treadwell might not be worth a top 15 pick, but once you get down to the last 10 picks of the first round...most of those teams pick late because they are good, and they are good because of top QBs, and a top QB and Treadwell will put up a lot of stats.

Can't squander a 12 pick on him, but he and Brees would be such a good fit. If Treadwell lands with NE or GB, watch for prolific rookie numbers.

He's strong with the ball in his hands and he's a really dependable target for an offense," Robinson said. "A lot of that has to weigh into your decision as opposed to just, how fast (he ran), or how high (he jumped)."

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze deferred to Treadwell's game film regarding questions about his speed.

"If you put on the tape and you watch how he performs against some of the best players in the nation in this league that we play in, I think that speaks volumes over what the clock says just on a 40 time," Freeze told NFL Network.

SJB? Stanley Jean Baptiste, the cornhusker that tried to pass himself off as a cornerback?
