The Carolina Panthers continue to set up visits with prospects and according to NFL.com, the team will be one of eight to meet with wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. He is expected to meet with all these teams after the Ole Miss' pro day on March 28th.
He was asked if he was excited about meeting all these teams and he responded quickly with, "Absolutely." He went on to say: "I take it very seriously. I take everything at this point like this is my job and treat everything I do like it's my job. I treat everybody with respect because you never know what everybody else can do for you or what doors might open up for you. I'm excited about it all and it's nothing anybody in my family has experienced so it will be fun."
Treadwell may be the perfect wide receiver for this Panthers' offense. He has the size the team looks for at 6'2" and is a "hands catcher with adequate body control who can climb the ladder and high point catches over defenders," according to Lance Zierlein's scouting report.
Treadwell had his best season last year, finishing with 82 receptions, 1,153 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. He was able to bounce back and play well after suffering a broken fibula and dislocated ankle that ended his 2014 season.
The question is whether or not the Panthers are ready to use their second first round pick in three years at wide receiver. The team has invested a great deal in the position with Kelvin Benjamin selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft and then trading up last year in the second round to select Devin Funchess.
The Panthers did release veteran Jerricho Cotchery earlier this season and a player like Treadwell could be the perfect possession-type wide receiver for this offense. This Ole Miss wide receiver is one that could be given some serious consideration if he is on the board at 30 when the Panthers are on the clock.
