Breaking Down Josh Doctson and Laquon Treadwell

Josh Doctson – WR – TCU Josh is a fifth year senior at TCU. Played one year at Wyoming and then transferred to TCU. Has put together two strong back to back seasons. In 2014 had 65 receptions for 1018 yards and 11 touchdowns. To date this season he has 79 receptions for 1327 yards and 14 touchdowns. Size – 6025 – 200 – 4.47 all estimated Strong Points – Excellent size for a receiver with length that allows him to play taller than he measures, Very good hands, can adjust to the ball and snatch it. Competes for the ball in traffic. Strong runner after the catch, very good deep threat. Great leaper who can go up and get it. Weak Points – Plays mostly from the right side of the formation. Has a limited route tree. Willing blocker but not consistently effective. Does not play in a very sophisticated offense. Summation – Josh is a player who has gotten better every year. He has excellent size and is very productive in the TCU offense. Has a limited route tree but still runs good routes. Can and will come back to the ball. He has very good hands, can adjust to the ball in the air and make the difficult catch. He is a strong runner after the catch and while not overly elusive, he uses his size to his advantage. Will need a period of adjustment once he gets to the NFL level, but he will play early in his career and can be a very solid number two receiver on most offenses.   Laquon Treadwell – WR- Mississippi Treadwell is a third year junior who by all accounts will be entering the 2016 NFL Draft as an underclassman. Has been a starter since his freshman year and has been very productive. To date he has 188 career catches for 2,242 yards and 17 touchdowns. Missed the last four games of the 2014 season with a broken leg and dislocated ankle. Still may not be back to 100%. Size – 6020 – 212 – 4.48 all estimated Strong Points –  A very 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. Looked faster before his injury but he may not quite be back to 100% form. Has very good hands, makes the difficult catch and does a nice job adjusting to the ball in the air. He is a physical runner after the catch, can make people miss with his quickness. He is a very strong blocker down field. Weak Points – Like many spread offense receivers, he has a limited route tree, really only runs about four different routes. Does not look to have the same speed he showed in 2014. Summation – Treadwell has the raw talent to become a very good NFL receiver. Will need time to learn the nuances of an NFL offense and route tree but after that period of adjustment he could ascend into being a number one type receiver. Because of the severity of his 2014 injury, doctors will give him a close look at the Combine. Follow Greg on Twitter @greggabe
