Vikings draft Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings addressed a glaring need at wide receiver, selecting Mississippi's Laquon Treadwell with 23rd overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night.

Treadwell, who's listed at 6-foot-2 and 221 pounds, recovered from a gruesome left ankle injury in 2014 to lead the SEC with 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015. He's the all-time leading receiver in Ole Miss history with 202 career catches.

Baylor's Corey Coleman was the first wide receiver off the board, snagged by Cleveland at No. 15. Houston flip-flopped with Washington to take Notre Dame's Will Fuller, and then TCU's Josh Doctson followed.
