Strong Points

A productive and physical player with all the tools to be very good at the next level. Has great size to go along with very good strength and overall athleticism. Not a real burner but fast enough. Has very good hands, can adjust to the ball and make the difficult catch. He is a physical runner after the catch, can make people miss. A strong blocker downfield. Competes in traffic for the ball.

Weak Points

Like many spread offense receivers, he has a limited route tree ... really only runs about four different routes. Had a serious injury in 2014 (broken fibula, dislocated ankle) and doesn’t look quite as fast as he was before the injury.

The Way We See It

Treadwell has the raw talent to become a very good receiver in the NFL. He will need time to learn the nuances of an NFL offense and route tree but after a period of adjustment, he could ascend into being a No. 1 receiver. Because of the severity of his 2014 injury, doctors will give him a close look at the Combine. If he runs faster than his play speed, he could be the first receiver drafted.
