two years ago, we started a tracking of the QB's drafted in Bridgewater's class so to examine their progress over time. now let's monitor the wide receivers drafted with Treadwell in 2016:

1.15 Corey Coleman, Browns
1.21 Will Fuller, Texans
1.22 Josh Doctson, Redskins
1.23 Laquon Treadwell, Vikings
2.9 Sterling Shepard, Giants
2.16 Michael Thomas, Saints
2.24 Tyler Boyd, Bengals


we'll start at the top pick taken -

Browns coach Hue Jackson, on Corey Coleman: "He's got to get in shape. He's explosive and he can catch the ball. He's extremely talented and gifted. But he's one of the guys that has to get in shape. He saw it himself, 'whoa, this is different.' And it is. But we'll get him to where he needs to be. He understands where he needs to be and I'm excited about him. He gets it. It'd be different if I didn't think a young man gets it, he does. And he knows there's work to do. That's what this is all about. That's why they call us coaches. We've got to take these guys and mold them into our culture and to our idea of being football players for the Cleveland browns and we'll get them there.''

sounds reminiscent of Childress....

I like all these WRs except Michael Thomas. They all are like perfect fits for the teams that took them. Wouldn't surprise me if all the 1st round guys were the #1 WR on the draft boards of the teams that took them.

Forgot all about Thomas. He landed in a situation where he can produce right away.

Same with Treadwell and Boyd

I think Thomas could end up being in the best situation to produce immediately. Brees isn't what he used to be but he's still going to throw for over 4500 yards. Someone has to catch those passes.

Treadwell may struggle getting touches as a rookie as Diggs, Rudolph and Peterson will also have significant roles in the offense.

I personally think that Shepard is in the best spot to succeed early.

Up until two days before the draft Doctson was my guy. Then I decided to look at who the Browns had spent the most time with. Colemans name was top of the list.

So I watched a lot of him and he quickly became my number one WR. Ran a limited route tree at Baylor but with his unmatched COD and Al Saunders as WR coach I don't see it being a problem.


Only one day of minicamp in the books so far so nothing to report yet

Thanks Vike Daddy for making the thread and posting in the Fuller thread on our board. Look forward to seeing how the WR's that were picked round 1 does this season and beyond. Hope Treadwell works out for you guys. Really like Teddy.

Not sure I've heard much about Thomas yet. I'm also why you wouldn't like the situation he's in, IMO he could have the quickest start out of all the WRs. I expect Fuller and Boyd to produce right away as well.

I'll start looking for some info on Thomas, but the Saints are quiet lately.

If they keep him in the slot, I also believe so.

Can we extend the 'WR-watch' to R6 ?

I for one will be looking at how Treadwell performs in purple, as we; (The Bengals); took Treadwells' buddy Cody Core in the 6th.

Like all of us I suspect; I watched a lot of Treadwells' game tape, and very often I saw someone making a great catch for Ole Miss thinking it was Treadwell; only to then realise it was Core making the grab....... The Bengals seem pretty sure they have someone in Core.

The way things seem to be shaping up in Bengaldom; Tyler Boyd looks to be effectively battling for Mohammed Sanus' snaps, with Cody Core fighting for Marvin Jones' snaps. Bengals want all their WR's to play all the spots; but I suspect that's how it will shape up.
