EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KMSP) - The Minnesota Vikings officially signed their first-round draft pick, Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.
The club drafted Treadwell 23rd overall and he is now the eighth and final 2016 draft pick to sign a Vikings contract.
Last season, the 20-year-old junior tallied 82 catches for 1,153 yards, plus three touchdowns in his team's Sugar Bowl win over Oklahoma State.
"One of the things we talked about was getting a big receiver with a big catching radius," head coach Mike Zimmer said on draft day. “He's the best blocking wide receiver I’ve ever seen."
3-year-old daughter Madison steals the show
When Laquon Treadwell was drafted No. 23 overall by the Minnesota Vikings, he brought his 3-year-old daughter, Madison, onto the stage in Chicago to share his life-changing moment. Madison greeted NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell with a high-five and had an ear-to-ear grin when his purple Vikings jersey was presented.
