They may only get the football six or seven times a game, but what they do with it when it’s in their hands can have a lasting impact on whether the team wins or loses. Ole Miss has had a bevy of playmakers to come through the program. This list of wide receivers and tight ends are as good as any school in the SEC. I’d be pleased to have these guys on my team.
Treadwell has lately stated in the media that he was not 100 percent his final year at Ole Miss. There are defensive backs in the SEC shaking their head in amazement. Treadwell’s 75 percent is better than most receivers 100 percent. His numbers are great on their own. But when you talk about Laquon, you talk about his skills on the field and his humbleness off.
You add the enormous strength and resolve it must have taken for him to return to the field after that horrific injury against Auburn in 2014, then it’s easy to see why you want someone like that on your team. Not to mention the man can flat-out catch the ball. Every time I saw Treadwell covered one on one, I beg for them to throw him the ball. Because he could beat any defensive back in the country.
Although while he was at Ole Miss he set nine records and was all time leader in receptions and career yards, Chris Collins is often overlooked when discussing all-time greats. But Collins was on the receiving end of many of Eli Manning’s passes. He was a consistent player for the Rebels. He had a streak of 35 straight games with a reception.
He became a fixture in the Rebel offense while putting up impressive numbers. He had great speed that fit well with Eli’s ability to throw the long ball. He goes down as one of my top receivers.
No tight end in the history of Ole Miss football has had more of an effect on the Rebel’s offense than Evan Engram. He owns most of the school records for TEs. He is a receiving threat that defenses have a hard time planning for. He’s stronger than most DBs and faster than most linebackers. Rebel fans enjoy Engram for one more year. 2016 could be an amazing year for him.
