Laquon Treadwell – WR

One of the top storylines at Vikings training camp this year has been the play of wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. Entering his third season with Minnesota, Treadwell seems to be enjoying the team’s new addition of quarterback Kirk Cousins this year.

Cousins and the receiver have seemed to develop a solid connection in training camp over the last two weeks and this could very well lead to some good things for Treadwell in the near future. During one of the Vikings’ recent practices the quarterback and receiver connected for four touchdowns on six attempts during a red zone drill.


Thanks to his efforts, Treadwell has been receiving praise from a number of Minnesota’s coaches and players. They all know how dangerous the team’s offense could be in 2018 if the young receiver evolves into another weapon for Cousins to throw to.

Seeing how Treadwell performs during the preseason in actual game situations is the next step in his evaluation process this summer. So far, so good though for the young receiver this year.
