WR Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss
Imagine Odell Beckham Jr, Victor Cruz, and Treadwell playing at the same time? If the Giants decide to spend big on defense in free agency, Treadwell could be their first pick.
Standing at 6’2 and 210 lbs, Treadwell is more physical than fast. The Giants will likely need another outside receiver as Rueben Randle departs in free agency; landing the Ole Miss star would give the Giants an embarrassment of riches at the wide receiver position (that is of course, if Cruz can actually get on the field).
Treadwell is the best receiver in this year’s draft, plain and simple. He deserves to be picked in the top 10, but the 9 teams in front of the Giants really aren’t desperate for a receiver. The 49ers could be, but only if they decide to keep Colin Kaepernick. The Browns could use him, but are better suited taking a top QB and nabbing skill players in the following rounds. Obviously things can change (trades, offseason injuries, etc) but there’s a chance Treadwell could fall to the Giants at 10.
It would be awfully hard to pass up the thought of a Beckham-Cruz-Treadwell pronged attack.
