Draft Notes: Laquon Treadwell, Ezekiel Elliot, & Derrick Henry

Laquon Treadwell

Jason Cole of B/R reports that Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell is debating whether to run the 40-yard dash at next week’s Scouting Combine.

There has been talk that Treadwell was expected post a less than spectacular time at the Combine, despite being considered the best receiver in this year’s draft class.

According to Cole, Treadwell has moved his training location and changed trainers, which is why he’s debating whether to run next week. Cole adds that Treadwell believes his route-running and overall game will lead to him still being a high pick in the draft.

Ezekiel Elliot

According to Jason Cole of B/R, Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott is expected to be the fastest “big” running back at this year’s Scouting Combine.

  • Cole mentions that Elliott has been running in the 4.5-range in preparation for the Combine and will likely be a first-round pick when all is said and done.
  • Cole wonders whether Elliot’s comments at the end of the year will have some impact on his overall draft status.

Derrick Henry

An NFL college scouting director tells Yahoo! Sports that Alabama RB Derrick Henry could be a good fit for teams like the Panthers, Patriots, Jets, Cowboys, and possibly even the Vikings.

They (Alabama) run gap, they run man (blocking schemes). They use inside and outside zone, old-school run game — traps, counters, stuff like that. Put him in the Panthers’ offense? My goodness,” the director said. “But I could see him in the Sean Payton (Saints offense). I could see him in the Patriots offense. The Jets, the Cowboys, even the Vikings, a four-minute back you finish teams off with. He has a role for sure.
