On Tuesday the news broke that this year’s consensus top receiver, Laquon Treadwell has opted to not run at the combine. Treadwell will skip the 40 yard dash at this year’s combine, but scouts will get a chance to see his speed at his Pro Day on March 28th.
Treadwell said he hasn’t spent enough time preparing for the 40 in his workouts, as reported by NBC Sports. In 2014 he broke his leg, but was healthy for all 13 games this past season.
Skipping the 40 at the combine shouldn’t hurt Treadwell’s stock at all. While he has a tremendous skillset, he’s not known for his speed – a poor 40 time wouldn’t be a shock to many scouts, although it could shy some teams away. Regardless, Treadwell has drawn comparisons from guys like Dez Bryant to Alshon Jeffery.
