Early-round prospect

Laquon Treadwell : WR : Ole Miss : 6’2″, 210 lbs

2015 stats: 82 receptions, 1153 yards, 11 touchdowns

The Ole Miss star is projected to go very early in the first round, potentially in the top-five. He often draws comparisons to Dez Bryant due to his 50/50 ball ability and body control. If the Chargers wanted to pick up Treadwell, they would have to spend their third overall selection to get him. It has been eight years since the team spent a first-round pick on a wide receiver. But with Philip Rivers not getting any younger, and Antonio Gates likely back for another season, the team could look to give this offense the weapons it needs to win now.
