Harbaugh says WR Laquon Treadwell ‘will be in the mix’ for a roster spot

Former first round pick Laquon Treadwell has an opportunity to crack the Ravens’ roster

On Monday, the Baltimore Ravens added yet another former first round pick on Monday, signing wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. Not a day later, Head Coach John Harbaugh sung his praises, expressing how impressed he was with the receiver.

“[He’s] really a determined guy,” Harbaugh said. “Wants to be really good. Physical practice, worked hard in the workout, came out here — pretty much knew what he was doing after getting here less than 24 hours ago. He didn’t make a mistake out there. I think that says a lot about who he is so he’ll be in the mix, we’ll let him compete and see how he does.”

Treadwell has struggled to live up to his first-round billing, but according to Harbaugh he has an opportunity to compete for a roster spot. It’s clear now the Ravens are dissatisfied with the production of last season and have made great swings to net talent, and are putting stock into former first-round picks, as they’ve also added wide receiver Nelson Agholor, Odell Beckham Jr., and have two first-round picks of their own on the roster in Rashod Bateman and rookie Zay Flowers.

At this point, training camp will be a heated battle for the depth receiver positions, with those who can produce both at receiver and special teams winning the final few spots available.
