Treadwell unproductive rookie year can be attributed to three things: 1) His slow acclimation to a Norv Turner scheme that wants perfection from rookies for them to play. 2) The Vikings altering its scheme when Teddy Bridgewater got hurt and Turner leaving the team. 3) Treadwell still recovering from a gruesome 2014 leg injury. A healthy and acclimated Treadwell has starter upside due to his red zone and ball-carrying prowess.

Summary

The Vikings had high hopes for Laquon Treadwell as they used their 1st round pick on him a year ago but he struggled in camp and didn't have the trust of the Vikings coaching staff. He is the guy to look for this year for the WR3 spot on the roster but will have to show major improvements early in Training Camp. He will be competing with free agent signing Michael Floyd. Floyd's career bottomed out when he was released by Arizona after another alcohol-related arrest, but the Vikings brought him home to Minnesota and he has a real chance to be an outside wide receiver starter and earned some of the incentives built into his one year, 1.5 million dollar deal.
