Laquon Treadwell. 2016 NFL Draft. 60. 3. Round 1, Pick 23. Laquon Treadwell. player. Ole Miss draft busts. .

Laquon Treadwell is still in the NFL, but he has not produced nearly as much as he should have as a first-round pick. In his rookie season with the Vikings, Treadwell started one game and had only three targets and one reception for 15 yards.

After his rookie season, Treadwell's time with the Vikings did not get much better. He only had 65 receptions for 701 yards and five touchdowns over his four years in Minnesota. After the Vikings decided not to resign Treadwell, the young receiver spent a year in Atlanta where he only played in five games and recorded only six receptions for 49 yards.

Treadwell ended up in Jacksonville after his time with the Falcons and there he had the best season of his career. He recorded 33 receptions for 434 yards and one touchdown. Since that season Treadwell spent a year with the Seahawks and then spent this past season with the Ravens.

It is hard to say where Treadwell will end up next, but for a first-round pick, more was expected.
