Laquan Treadwell's Pro Day went as expected

The wide receiver ran exactly as expected at the Ole Miss Pro Day.

Last month Ole Miss' former top receiver and #1 draft prospect Laquan Treadwell announced that he would not run the 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and that he was going to spend his time training so that he could run a fast 40 at the Ole Miss pro day on March 28th. And for one month, the football world was forced to watch and speculate on how the wide receiver would run.

The Ole Miss pro day passed by two days ago and it doesn't look like that training Treadwell did in Miami paid off. Laquan Treadwell ran a 4.6 40 at the Ole Miss pro day, which isn't slow, but it's not exactly what  a speedster would run. The move to skip the 40 at the Combine and wait for the Pro Day did not help Treadwell boost his draft stock and jump into the top 10, but he probably didn't hurt himself too much. Treadwell should still end up being taken in the middle of the first and he'll probably be the first wide receiver taken.

This looks like to be one of the weakest wide receiver classes in recent years, as we might not see a wide receiver taken until the middle of the first, while in 2014 and 2015 there were two wide receivers taken in the top 10. If the Ravens want to take a receiver, the second round might be the best place to do so.
